Power System Frequency Impacts and Control

Course overview

The Power System Frequency Impacts and Control training class teaches students the fundamentals of frequency control in the power system. The NERC CEH class focuses on generation, balancing, and load which can all impact frequency. In this NERC training, students use the proprietary power system simulator to observe how frequency responds to various real-time scenarios, including a generator trip, load, relay operations, and system restoration.

Topics include:

  • Frequency, definition, and sine wave review
  • Generators, poles, speed, and governor action
  • Interconnection balance and Balancing Authorities
  • Automatic generator control (AGC) and reserves
