Electric power distribution system plays an important role in the efficient operation of a modern industrial plant.   Such a system includes high voltage circuit breakers, switchgear, transformers, motor control centers, electric motors, variable speed drives, etc.   A trouble-free electrical system is essential for an interruption-free plant operation. The continuity and quality of electricity delivered safely and economically by today’s and futures electrical power networks are important for both developed and developing economies.

This course will cover all aspects of power distribution, including system planning, equipment selection, and application, system grounding, 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 layouts and principles of short-circuit ratings.


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

  • Understand practical power distribution fundamentals & Different layouts.
  • Determine short-circuit ratings quickly and effectively
  • Recognise the different applications for various cable insulation types
  • Know when and how to use single core cables vs. three core cables
  • Specify correct power cable sizing/selection.
  • Correctly utilise and protect power transformers
  • Assess and specify correct grounding throughout your electrical network
  • Confidently use computer simulation software to solve short circuit problems. Just demonstration using ETAP power station
  • Study Effect of Harmonics on power system equipment.
  • Overview different protection units & schemes for Electrical equipment.


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

  • Project Engineers / Managers
  • Electrical System Operators
  • Electrical System Engineers.
  • Electrical Engineers, Formans, and Technicians
  • Asset Engineers / Managers
  • Maintenance Engineers and supervisors


The latest educational methods and strategies are employed. The course is designed to not only give the required fundamental knowledge but also to provide a strong background for all attendees towards practical industrial applications. The course will be highly interactive, with opportunities to advance your opinions and ideas. Participation is encouraged in a supportive environment. To ensure the concepts introduced during the course are understood, they will be reinforced through a mix of learning methods, including lecture style presentation, open discussion, case studies, simulations and group work.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
