Online Seminars Update

We’re working hard on the next online seminar and had to make some changes to the plan after we realized how much content would be included in our original overcurrent relay testing plan and that much of it can already be found in The How to Test Protective Relays Online Seminar.

Therefore, our new plan is to start converting our in-person, hands-on training classes into online seminars that follow a logical skill progression. The first seminar will start with a digital version of our Introduction To Modern Relay Testing Hands-On Training Class, which will cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to Protective Relays (Theory)
  • How to Test Electro-Mechanical Overcurrent Relays (Hands-On)
  • Understanding Power System Faults and Fault Types (Theory)
  • How to Test Simple Overcurrent Relays (Hands-On)
  • Introduction to Power System Studies (Theory)
  • How to Test Modern Digital Relays the Easy Way

This should be the first seminar that new students take, which would then be followed by The How to Test Protective Relays Online Seminar, which covers most of the topics in the Protective Relay Testing Fundamentals Hands-On Training class.

The How To Test Basic Overcurrent Relays (and an Introduction to Protective Relays) Online Seminar will introduce more test-set examples from different vendors, then we’ll start adding these test-sets to The How to Test Protective Relays Online Seminar, which existing students will get access to at no charge.

Then we’ll start recording the How to Test Advanced Overcurrent Relays Online Seminar, which will include the following topics:

  • Understanding How Relays Determine the Fault Direction
  • How to Test Simple Directional Overcurrent Relays
  • Basic Sequence Components for Relay Testers and Directional Elements
  • How to Test Any Directional Overcurrent Relay
  • Introduction to Basic Relay Logic
  • How to Test Breaker Fail Relays

That’s the plan for now. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
