Electrical System Protection and Coordination

Power System Analyses are an essential part of electrical power system design. Load flow analysis, short circuit analysis, and protection coordination are necessary to verify that the electrical system including the system components, are correctly specified to perform as intended, withstand expected stress, and be protected against failures.


1. Enumerate the fundamental principles of load flow analysis, short circuit analysis and protection coordination.
2. Analyze and examine theories, formulas and techniques for power system analysis: per-unit calculations, symmetrical components, and fault calculations,
3. Interpret and perform short circuit analysis and voltage drop calculations and analyze the use of protective devices: fuse, circuit breaker and overcurrent relays
4. Review of fundamental considerations for protection, including data gathering, fault calculations, equipment and safety.
5. Utilize power system software to create and modify one-line drawings and time-current curve (TCC)
6. Interpret TCCs and equipment damage curves
