Energy Audit & Management Training Course

Introduction:

This energy audit and management training course explores power quality and its effects on electrical system reliability. First, power quality is precisely defined, which is crucial because establishing baseline conditions and gauging improvements would be easier with a detailed definition.

The energy audit and management course then delves into methods of evaluating reliability. Upon completion, participants will have a comprehensive understanding of how power quality and reliability can be measured, alongside the implications of modifications to the electrical system.

Energy Management and Energy Audit:

When discussing energy efficiency, it is essential to understand what an energy audit is and the role of energy management. Energy audits systematically review operations and equipment that consume energy to identify cost-effective savings.

This energy audit and management course addresses the fundamental concepts, procedures, and benefits of energy auditing and management, aiming to provide a robust energy management certificate to those who complete the training successfully.

Targeted Groups:

  • Engineers and technicians new to the power industry.
  • Intermediate-level engineers and technicians aiming to enhance system reliability.
  • Professionals involved with the assessment of power quality.
  • Facility engineers and consultants tasked with addressing power quality issues.
  • Engineers responsible for monitoring system performance and reliability.

Course Objectives:

After engaging in this energy audit and management training program, participants will be able to:

  • Grasp expected power quality and reliability terminology.
  • Evaluate the impact of voltage sags on sensitive equipment.
  • Understand how fault clearing affects voltage stability.
  • Utilize standardized reliability indices in their assessments.
  • Identify sources of transient overvoltages and specify arresters appropriately.
  • Recognize harmonic production causes and apply mitigation strategies.
  • Analyze AC power components and their correlation with voltage regulation.

Targeted Competencies:

At the end of this energy audit and management training course, the target competencies will be able to:

  • Power quality and reliability assessments.
  • Voltage sags and outage management.
  • Power system fault-clearing effects.
  • Calculation of reliability indices.
  • Transient overvoltage strategies, including arresters.
