Transmission Systems Operators
This transmission systems operator training series is aimed principally at power system operators in the new ISO and power pools. However, we also expect interest from the new entrants to the power business such as brokers, traders, and independent generators. For this reason, a certain amount of necessary standard practice material is included in the program to provide a base on which to build the more advanced techniques.

Electric Power Generation, Distribution, and Transmission Industry 
Industry Hazards
from OSHA

Many of the specific hazards associated with this industry are similar to those found in other large industries. In addition, workers in other industries have experienced electrocution injuries and fatalities from distribution lines, most notably in the telephone and cable industries (see Hazards for Other Workers). The most important hazards associated with the electric power industry are:
  • Electrocution
  • Falls
  • Confined Spaces
  • Fires and Explosions
  • Sprains, Strains, and Fractures
  • Environmental Stress
  • Electrocution

Sample Course Descriptions

Knowledge of the NERC standards and the application of these standards in the workplace are important for maintaining reliability and good operating practices. This course is designed to provide you with a practical understanding of each NERC operating standard.

This course gives a practical overview of key NERC reliability standards and promotes a working knowledge of the meaning and purpose of each standard as it relates to operating practices and grid reliability. Just as the Balancing Authority has standards that contribute to controlling Interconnection frequency per area size, this part covers ACE and its values, and how well a Balancing Authority controls its ACE.

As you may know, time is of the essence in correcting deviations, but what constitutes a reportable disturbance or the default Contingency Reserve Period and how is frequency bias calculated? These are just a few of the items covered along with the main responsibilities of a Reliability Coordinator and other essential operating information.

Using a simulated AGC system, this table-top exercise introduces various system events to reproduce an emergency response drill situation similar to those that occur in the actual workplace. During this module, you will be asked to analyze these events and to formulate your own response to an AGC emergency response drill.

Safety requires a particular frame of mind, a personal commitment, an awareness, and full safety compliance, based upon knowledge, training, and experience. The safety of employees and field personnel, and even the safety of the public, depend upon your conscientious and disciplined use of safe work practices in all of your day-to-day operations.

This course provides an overview of high-voltage power-system operations and will allow you to engage with the material by participating in training exercises requiring the application of system operating knowledge.

The following course is intended to help you prepare for the NERC Certification Exam. This course will familiarize you with many concepts that you should expect to encounter in the exam.

In this part you will calculate MVA and MVAR. Explain how the WECC algorithm varies from that of NERC. Discuss how sync check relays are used for paralleling between two assumed synchronized sources. You will also describe what automatic synchronizing relays are used for and what manual synchronizing depends upon, as well as the best way to change a phase angle across an open point and in parallel to a synchronous system; showing an understanding of ACE, AGC response, frequency bias effect, and inadvertent accumulation; as well as discussing what conductor resistance is determined by and offering an explanation of the Ferranti Effect. This part also concerns Surge Impedance Loading (SIL) calculation and the condition to which Surge Impedance (SI) refers. You will also explain what determines power flow, transfer stability and thermal limits and how protective gaps aid people working close to the associated EHV line or equipment.

The course also offers a variety of review documents, study tools, and practice exam questions to aid you in your preparation efforts. This course is a tool and to be effective it must be coupled with your study of the NERC Standards and real-time application thereof.

The objective of this course, the first in the series on Condition Monitoring, is to focus attention on the overall maintenance task, the different levels of maintenance required, and the development of Predictive Maintenance with its attendant need for 'condition monitoring'.
