Intended Audience: Electrical, Mechanical & Power Engineers.


Substations represent the most important junction in the electric power system; generation switchyard, transmission, sub-transmission, distribution, unit, customer, and Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) are important substation types that make up the electric grid. Substations represent the most expensive property in the utility system that includes very expensive equipment, such as power transformers, instrument transformers, breakers, capacitors, shunt reactors, switches, SCADA, and relays. Nowadays, data and big data play critical roles in the energy world to transform substations into intelligent substations; monitoring devices and advanced cameras are installed at critical substations to reduce O&M, extend the life of various components, and prevent damage.

This course is intended for electrical, renewable, and sustainability engineers as well as others interested in learning more about intelligent substations.

Learning Objectives:

At the successful conclusion of this course, you will learn the following knowledge and skills:
  • Familiarizing with the 2030/2040/2050 Grid
  • Understanding substation, types, transformation and key function
  • Familiarizing with substation key equipment and monitoring candidates
  • Knowing why the future is 3D
  • Learning about Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) data
