Early Bird Registration Ends April 11, 2017!

The focus of this course is to provide participants with knowledge of how electric power is transferred from generation sources to distribution systems via the interconnected electric bulk power system known as "the grid." Basic physical laws governing the grid will be introduced, as well as the regulatory agencies involved in its governance. The great blackouts will be explored. This course is intended to increase participant's understanding of the electric grid and how it functions in the electric power system.

A high level understanding of the electric utility industry is recommended as prerequisite for the Transmission System course.
