This 3-hour course is the sixth in a series of courses on the design of electrical substations. The courses do not necessarily have to be taken in order and, for the most part, are stand-alone courses.

This course covers voltage regulators and capacitors as they are used in substations.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • How voltage regulators are used in substations
  • Different types of voltage regulators
  • Different types of controls used with voltage regulators
  • How shunt capacitors are used in substations
  • The impact of resonant conditions
  • Different types of capacitor bank configurations used

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 20 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
