Introduction to Distribution Systems and Power Circuit Analysis Training Course Industry Need Location This course provides engineers with a fundamental The course is conducted on a regular basis at understanding of electric circuit analysis with Siemens PTI offices in Schenectady, NY and at other applications to power distribution systems. The major cities throughout the United States. It is also material is especially suited for any engineer who available for presentation at a client’s location by did not receive fundamental training in power special arrangement. systems or for those who wish to receive a refresher. Continuing Education Units Objectives 2.7 Continuing Education Units (CEU's) will be The main objective of this course is to improve the awarded for successful completion of this short participant’s understanding of power circuit analysis course. The CEU is the nationally recognized unit for and distribution systems. The participant will exit recording participation in noncredit educational the course with greater ability to analyze common programs. One CEU is equal to ten classroom hours. power circuit problems. The participant will also have a stronger understanding of distribution system problems and equipment applications. Prerequisites Participants should have a four year engineering degree with college level courses in geometry, trigonometry, matrix algebra, and physics. A background in electric power systems is not required. Course Structure The course duration is four and one-half days, with the last day concluding at noon. Each morning and afternoon session is three hours. Documentation Each participant will receive a bound set of course notes that complement the lectures. The lectures closely follow the notes to minimize the need for note taking in the class. Instructors The course will be taught by Siemens PTI consulting engineers that have extensive experience in electric power systems.
