An Interactive 5-Day Training Course

Substation and Distribution Automation

Substation and Distribution Automation

Course Overview

Electrical substations, critical components of energy grids, are being modernized by integrating Substation Automation Systems (SAS). Historically, substations regulated and changed voltage levels manually; however, many of these substations were constructed several decades ago. Today, with the advent of Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs), substations are being automated to enhance operation efficiencies and asset management and result in long-term cost savings by eliminating the need for human intervention during operations.

Substation Automation System (SAS) is comprehensive in substation control and monitoring solutions, including protection, control, automation, monitoring, and communication functions. Training courses on Substation and Distribution Automation offer comprehensive perspectives on substations' operational, constructional, and installation aspects and the various equipment involved in the automation system. It also emphasizes the evolution of substation automation, the benefits of digital substations, and safety measures pertinent within a substation.

Upon completion of this training courses, participants gain the ability to identify different substations, understand the characteristics of substation automation and appreciate the role of the components involved. Moreover, the impact of emerging technologies, including IoT and AI, in the digital era is also extensively covered. Technological preparedness is further enhanced through the introduction of state-of-the-art technologies and equipment. The training course adds excellent value to the organization as it builds a competent workforce well versed in the latest IEDs and safety measures and networks the personnel with technology leaders and engineers, giving exposure to new technologies like substation automation and digitalization.

Training Objectives

Upon completing this Substation and Distribution Automation training course, participants are expected to understand the industry comprehensively. Specifically, they can distinguish between different types of substations and comprehend their specific functions. Beyond this, a deeper grasp of the unique aspects of substation automation will allow them to appreciate its necessity in the modern energy structure fully. They will be capable of identifying the critical roles played by various components within the substation automation system. Additionally, they'll grasp the significance of the shift towards digital substations. Further, they'll be able to evaluate the influence of emerging technologies, like IoT and AI, in shaping the digital era of the energy industry.
