Medium Voltage Training

Medium Voltage Power Systems​
Live + On Demand

The backbone of many electric power systems is the medium voltage distribution system. What is medium voltage? It is typically voltages ranging from 2,400 to 34,500 Volts. This medium voltage training addresses voltage stress, surge arrestors, protection of equipment, insulation voltage classes, insulation coordination, equipment selection, operation and more.
16 Hours | 16 PDHs | 1.6 CEUs | $895.00

This 16 hour class by Jim Phillips, P.E. takes you through the fundamentals of medium voltage power systems including the components, equipment, design and operation problems as well as overcurrent protection, surge protection, insulation coordination and many other important aspects of medium voltage power systems.

Jim has developed this course based on his more than four decades of extensive experience with industrial, commercial and utility power systems and standards development.  He is not just another trainer reading a script.   Jim’s training is based on his insider’s view from being very active with many different standards committees which provides him with the unique perspective, literally from the inside.  Coupled with his broad electrical power background,  he loves sharing his experience and insider’s view with others.

One of the many topics that Jim discusses in this 16 hour class is overcurrent relays and relay settings including determining the current transformer ratio, CT saturation calculations, determining overcurrent relay settings and calculating transformer differential relay settings.  This class also includes many other topics such as surge protection, insulation coordination and more.
