Electric Power Transmission and Distribution Engineering Training – Hands-on

Electric Power Transmission and Distribution Engineering Training: Power transmission and distribution infrastructure connects, cities countries, power plants, urban area and rural areas to electrical power. Smart grid infrastructure requires demand response, grid interconnects, energy management systems and energy storage. Along with the increasing complexity of the problems confronting our civilization, system complexity has dramatically increased over the last several decades. It is even more important today to deploy advanced methods and improved processes to effectively track life-cycle costs, calculate risk and complexity, and leverage best solutions and techniques.

Power and Energy Systems Engineering Training – aligned with INCOSE Power and Energy Systems Engineering activities- provides a renewed focus on the application of advanced methods and tools applied by modern Systems Engineering to the analysis and solutions of complex problems for intelligent decision making. Specific focus in this Electric Power Transmission and Distribution Engineering Training course will be on applied systems methods for Energy and Power Systems.

Power and Energy Systems Engineering Training Program is designed for professional engineers and professionals who already have systems engineering responsibilities or who want to grow into this role. The program’s challenging Electric Power Transmission and Distribution Engineering Training courses emphasize ongoing technical change and the technical, business, and interpersonal skills characteristic of systems engineering positions. The Electric Power Transmission and Distribution Engineering Training program covers analysis, design, integration, production, testing, and operation of modern high technology systems.

The Electric Power Transmission and Distribution Engineering Training course also describes the systems engineering activities during the conceptual design phase, and the engineering of requirements. The Electric Power Transmission and Distribution Engineering Training course begins with analysis of needs and objectives and the derivation of requirements, then proceeds to the exploration of alternative concepts and the selection of a concept that best meets goals of performance, timeliness, and affordability.

Our Electric Power Transmission and Distribution Engineering Training program has been developed to prepare engineers to design and implement power and energy systems for innovative applications by acquiring strengths in their engineering discipline, breadth in relevant engineering and science, and understanding of the critical role of the environment in energy systems, including economic factors.
