Overvoltage Protection Workshop

Learn how to economically prevent excessive transient overvoltages from damaging electric utility distribution systems equipment or interrupting normal power system operation in Eaton’s two-day Overvoltage Protection Workshop. The workshop is designed for utility distribution engineers or any engineer who is involved with design or implementation of overvoltage protection schemes for utility distribution systems.

The goal of this two day workshop is to explain how various overvoltage protection schemes are designed and to instruct how to solve practical and realistic overvoltage problems. Problems allow students to explore standard, as well as, extraordinary conditions where standard overvoltage protection schemes may not be effective.

Students will learn how to make overvoltage protection schemes as effective as possible within given economic constraints. Installations of actual utility distribution equipment in Eaton’s Power Systems Experience Center are used to illustrate a variety of surge arrester applications and the protected equipment, as well as demonstrate concepts and transient phenomena.

Class topics include: 

  • Basic overvoltage protection
  • Basic Insulation Level (BIL)
  • Insulation coordination
  • Sources of system over-voltages
  • Arrester fundamentals
  • Application of arresters and other over-voltage protection schemes
  • Distribution equipment protection
  • Overhead and underground systems protection
  • Substation protection
  • Switching transients
  • Low voltage surge protection

Power Quality Monitoring and Analysis

The Power Quality Monitoring and Analysis Seminar is designed for engineers and technicians who want to know how to identify, analyze and correct power quality problems in industrial and commercial power systems. You will learn and practice these techniques in our Power Systems Experience Center where we are able to produce, monitor and measure actual power interruptions, transient overvoltage events and harmonics currents in our 480-volt three phase distribution system.

More than 50% of the time is dedicated to hands-on practice using a variety of portable and panel mount monitors and analyzers. Solution demonstrations include sag ride-thru, surge protection, filters, active filters, phase-shifting, etc. Students are also encouraged to bring their own analyzers to learn new uses for them. Each training program participant receives a comprehensive classroom reference manual and flash drive.

 

Program Content

  • Power Quality Fundamentals – Disturbances, Harmonics, Transients, Grounding, Example Waveforms, Equipment Tolerances, ITIC, IEEE 519-2014, and IEC Standards
