Power Systems Short Circuit Analysis

High Voltage Asymmetrical Fault Analysis | taught by Graham Van Brunt

Course description

This Course “Power Systems Short Circuit Analysis” introduces the student to the basic concepts of fault studies on a high voltage three phase system. With the help of a quick review of “Per Phase” & “Per Unit” methodologies system faults are analysed with the use of symmetrical components. System modeling is then used in order to aid in the process, with the ability to move between asymmetrical and symmetrical systems.
