This 3-hour course covers the recommended practice for proper ground-fault protection in electric distribution circuits.
The course materials are based entirely on Chapter 8 Ground-fault Protection of IEEE 242-2001 IEEE Recommended Practice for Protection and Coordination of Industrial and Commercial Power Systems. It will be necessary for the student to obtain a copy of IEEE 242-2001 IEEE Recommended Practice for Protection and Coordination of Industrial and Commercial Power Systems. This is a very useful resource and is recommended that all practicing electrical or project engineers involved in ground-fault protection in electric distribution circuits obtain a copy or have access to this important recommended practice.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
