Distribution Systems

Course overview

This class gives students technical and engineering concepts background and working knowledge in modern distribution facilities equipment, construction practices, and design applications. It starts with an overview of the electric power system as it applies to distribution, customer services, and consumption, then discusses overhead and underground equipment applications and configurations, service reliability and power quality, and an in-depth examination of electrical safety (including arc flash) in high voltage environments.

Students learn:

  • How three-phase electric power is distributed and consumed
  • How high voltage equipment is used in overhead and underground distribution systems
  • How reliability indices are determined, and power quality issues are defined
  • How to properly use safety equipment and procedures in high voltage environments
