Development of industrial and commercial electrical power systems has also introduced the requirements for their improved reliability. The possible outage time costs have also dramatically increased. The introduction of automation systems into industry and commerce requires application of advanced power system automation to enhance overall reliability and efficiency. Careful attention must be given to the protection and control of industrial electrical supply systems.

Many technologies that have been developed for EHV electrical systems may be used in lower voltage systems but usually on a reduced scale. Nevertheless, industrial electrical systems have many issues that need special attention and the development of custom solutions.

This course is intended for electrical engineers with a desire to understand protection fundamentals that are applicable to industrial systems. Presented details cover protection of different equipment such as motors, feeders and transformers. A description of MCBs, MCCBs, fuses, different circuit breaker technologies and relays is also provided. Upon successful completion of this course, you will understand industrial system protection in terms of available protection technologies, methods, protection arrangements and their application to typical design configurations.
