Power systems at the distribution level should be planned and designed with consideration for ease of operation. Such considerations include but are not limited to utilization of standard components, facilitating availability of spare parts, optimization of post-contingency switching operations, reduction of operational risks and use of special protection systems (SPSs) and power supply reliability. Power system planning- must consider system configuration and the effect of harmonics in current and voltage during the distribution system study. The quality of electrical power must guarantee the continuity of supply (Harmonics problems), fixed frequency, non-viola¬tion of voltage limits, cleanness of supply voltage signal ect.

The power System Harmonics, Distribution & Protection course will discuss how future electrical loads can be integrated into the existing power utility networks to meet the high supply quality and match with standard rating values (IEC standard). This course will cover all aspects of power distribution, including system operation, equipment selection and application, system harmonics values, protection and conformity with electrical code requirements. Participants gain knowledge of different protection units & schemes for electrical equipment, harmonics on power system equipment, power distribution fundamentals & different types.


Upon completion of Power System Harmonics, Distribution & Protection Training Course, the participant will be able to understand:

  • Power Distributions system Introduction and Electrical safety
  • Power System Quality Problems and Harmonics
  • Study Effect of Harmonics on Power System Equipment.
  • Current & Voltage Limits of Harmonics IEEE Std 519TM – 2014
  • Harmonics reducing methods and recommendations according to IEEE standard.
  • Total Harmonic Distortion THD metering.
  • Understand practical power distribution fundamentals and different types.
  • Electrical Function, Operation and Importance of Switchgear & Distribution System.
  • Understand the various types of fault currents.
  • Distribution System Equipment & Protection
  • Distribution System Circuit Breakers, Protection Relays & Instrument Transformers
  • Analyze the common faults in a power system.


Power System Harmonics, Distribution & Protection training course is suitable to a wide range of technical professionals includes:

  • Project Engineers / Managers
  • Electrical System Operators
