Training Power System Blackouts and Restoration: Causes, Prevention, Automatic Protection Schemes, Graphic


Major blackouts are caused by failing to conduct rigorous long term planning studies of the electrical system; and neglect to conduct appropriate multiple contingency or extreme condition assessment. Also the lack of sufficient voltage analysis and use of operational voltage criteria that do not reflect actual voltage stability conditions and needs can lead to catastrophic blackouts. Reliability requirements and standards must be followed during the system operation. The security of the transmission system must be ensured under all conditions. Usually major blackout can result in major loss of revenue, business interruptions, communication interruptions, security and bad quality of supply


  • To provide electric system planners, designers and operators with concepts, tools and methodologies essential to address modern-day issues of competition, open access, wheeling and new technology in system planning
  • How to improve the quality of supply in A.C power system
  • Necessary steps to prevent cascading blackouts


The training methodology is interactive with group exercises and is suitable for all employees involved in functions management. The pace and level of the training workshop is customized to the understanding of the delegates. Ongoing back-up and support is available after the training on request to the supplier, and the training course is also available for in-house presentation as well as for “Competency Transfer”


This course is intended for junior & senior electrical engineers working in operation, planning maintenance, protection, control and analysis of utilities & industrial electrical networks
