The continuity of Electrical Power Supply is very important to the consumers especially for industrial sector, where curtail of electrical power supply is costly. Electrical systems are subjected to several external & internal influences like weather conditions, lightning phenomenon, pollution, insulation failure, temperature rise, etc., these influences cause abnormal operational condition, which could lead to voltage and frequency variations and feeder trips, brown out or black out of electrical system, and sometimes, may lead to equipment damage or system failure.

Performance and characteristics of electrical system configurations are vital factor in reducing or increasing the effect of faults on the system as earthling system, switch gear, protective relays, active and reactive power generation, etc.

This course discusses electrical system faults and elements of the system that affect its behavior during the fault. The cause also will suggest measures to mitigate the problems that would arise.

Many utilities need this course which studies the influences of the above mentioned events on the electrical networks and their affect on the continuity of electrical power supply and how mitigate these problems.


By the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • Explain the models for generators during a fault and be able to use the models to calculate the fault current at any point in time for a fault applied to the terminal of a generator. Perform design calculations for choosing a circuit breaker for a system experiencing a balanced three-phase fault at any location.
  • Describe the advantage of using symmetrical components to analyse unbalanced system operation.
  • Convert between phase values and symmetrical component values.
  • Draw sequence networks for a given three-phase system for fault analysis.
  • Analyse unbalanced power systems using symmetrical components

This course is intended for Engineers & supervisors who work in transmission, distribution, maintenance, operation, control and analysis of Utilities & Industrial Electrical Networks.
