Management of an Electrical System
in an HV Dispatch Centre

TRAINING OBJECTIVE

 

PEDAGOGY

Ability to manage a power system with a control center in the phases of development, operation planning and real time operation:

  • know the targets of power system operation
  • know the risks related to power system safety
  • ability to master the peer system parameters at any time
 
  • Theoretical training
  • Real case studies
  • Use of network simulator (when available)

Length of the course:

  • 2 to 3 days for managers
  • 3 to 5 days for the staff not working in real time
  • 10 to 20 days for real time operators

TRAINING PROGRAM
