The course selection table shows: course number, title, duration,


prerequired courses and the page of the course description. As
well, the general course dependency over the three different skill
levels (Operation, Configuration and System Integration) in the
different field areas. According to your job function and your
experience in the subject area, you should select the needed
course modules under the consideration of the course dependency
and prerequisites.
For the course details please consider the course description or go
to our webpage:

to: Switzerland / English) --> Substation Automation & Protection

Operation
& Maintenance

Configuration

System
Integration

The participants acquire product basics such as structures, functions,


operating programs as well as installation and operation (e.g. HW
structure, function overview, using of HMI's, etc.)

The participants acquire in-depth product knowledge in order to


implement an application function in practice (e.g. base configuration
and testing of the IED, min. 50% hands-on, testing, troubleshooting,
etc.)
The participants acquire in-depth system knowledge to integrate
components into a substation automation system (e.g. product integration, system troubleshooting, etc.)

Power Systems Substation Automation and Protection


CHS100

Power System Technology


F undamentals
Course goal
The participants become familiar with the electrical power system and all its components and features. This familiarization is
the basis for all engineering and operating activities in power
systems. They are introduced to the fundamentals of todays
technologies in substations (switchgear), substation automation
including protection, communication and power system management.
Learning objectives
Describe the power system structure and behavior
Explain the different configurations of substations and their
components
List the functions of the automation and protection system
Explain typical substation automation system structures
Describe the most common protection schemes
Explain how the primary system (switchgear) is interfaced
with the substation automation system
Describe the different means for the communication in
power systems
Describe the basics of network management
Participants
Consultants and employees from the electricity supply industry.
Personnel from ABB companies.
Note: This course is designed for newcomers in the area of
power system technology.
Prerequisites
College qualification or equivalent.
Topics
Power system description
Voltage levels, substations as power grid nodes
Transmission vs. distribution power systems
Power system faults and disturbances
Network equations and state estimation, network stability,
Generation, active and reactive power, P-f relationship, Q-V
relationship, Power quality
Principles of power system management
Idea and concept of smart grids
Substations and their components
