Introduction To the Electric Utility Workshop

This course is designed to acquaint non-technical utility employees with the basics of their industry from the generation to the distribution of electricity.

In the conventional production methods section you will learn the role of primary energy sources: water, gas, oil, coal, and nuclear. You will also hear about power conversion processes, system application, capital and operating costs and grid connection considerations. The discussion will cover primary transmission and distribution methods, equipment, substation design, operation, maintenance, protection, control, metering and power quality. The last section will deal with customer services including supply side services and end uses. Participants will gain a clear insight into how electricity works for the customer with an emphasis on understanding words, terms and phrases unique to the electric power industry.
