Reliability of the electric system is measured by the weakest link. From a rating perspective, a circuit that is ten miles long may be limited by a section that is only 50 feet in length. This course compares the reliability of the overhead and underground transmission systems and compares various transmission substation designs, how they operate under normal conditions and during faults, breaker failure, etc.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Key components of the transmission system
  • Common transmission substation designs and the reliability of each design
  • Reliability of underground (UG) vs (OH) transmission lines
  • How the UG/OH systems are impacted differently by weather events
  • The impact of oil filled cables on UG transmission line reliability
  • Reliability of straight bus, ring bus, double ring bus and breaker and a half bus substation designs

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 12 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
