Course overview

Generation, transmission, and distribution systems contain vital components requiring constant monitoring. The North American Electrical Reliability Corporation (NERC) is the agency that defines how those items are monitored. To ensure compliance with NERC standards, all owners and operators must be familiar with Protection and Control requirements as they relate to Distribution Monitoring Equipment (DME) and data reporting.

The Disturbance Monitoring Equipment training course explains why DME is required. It identifies and applies guidelines of applicable NERC standards. It also identifies types and applications of common DME and conducts accurate DME data reporting. This online training course focuses on:

  • DME principles
  • Major categories of DME
  • Operator adherence to NERC guidelines
  • Requirements for data reporting and analysis

Disturbance Monitoring Equipment is part of the System Protection training series.
