Electrical, Renewable Energy, Power, DCS Training Courses

5-Day Mini Master in Power, Electricity, and Industry Infrastructure


This training course encompasses the three major aspects of all electrical installation networks worldwide. This course has been designed to provide a clear and perfect understanding of the principles, characteristics, construction, and selection of power transmission, distribution of electricity, and the state of the art digital industry infrastructure. The thermal energy mode of electric power generation is now gradually superseded by green and clean energy predominantly by solar and wind power hence provide power transmission.

The smart grid and microgrids are current trends in the electricity distribution networks. Intelligent sensors with artificial intelligence capabilities are incorporated into these grids for the distribution of electricity. The industry infrastructure has made significant progress by incorporating electrical equipment that will reduce carbon footprint and subsequently reduce the global warming potential substantially. Digital substations are mushrooming as efficient infrastructure components and equipment has great reliance in the internet of things (IoT) technologies. Smart digital transformers are emerging rapidly with the onset of industry infrastructure digitalization. The retro filling of new ester oil as a substitute for mineral oil in transformers is fast gaining prominence as it increases the safety of transformer installations
