and many more....

This power transmission L&K training module is outstanding in scope and content - regarding interconnected system operation. This is an excellent
foundation for a beginner understanding of interconnected system operations. This module is also an excellent review for more experienced system operations personnel. This content includes the basics of interconnected system operations, introductions to key NERC Standards, a guide in understanding automatic generation control (AGC), interchange transactions, time error correction, system reliability, system monitoring, and basics of control performance measurement.       

This power transmission L&K training module firmly grasps the control and performance requirements of a Balancing Authority Area. This is a great review for experienced system operators as well as for new operators in a generation, transmission, or balancing authority role. The subjects center upon the newest NERC Standards, details of ACE, control performance criteria, contingency reserve, the effects of frequency excursions, system monitoring, and disturbance control requirement.

This L&K training module provides excellent coverage of operating reliability limits and voltage control. This would be a cornerstone of training for a newcomer to operations as well as a good review for the more experienced individual. The subjects covered include operating limits, monitoring system conditions, power transfer and stability, reactive and voltage control, aspects of system operation, and emergency operations. The exams and problems associated with this module are great for all those associated with power transfer and reliability. It also provides a great deal of navigation through the associated Standards as opposed to that same information that previously resided in NERC Policies.

This module stresses information dealing with a number of issues related to the transfer of energy on the power system as well as the background necessary to fully understand interchange schedules that result from transaction tags established by PSEs.
During the latter portions of the course, you will review the provisions of NERC Standard IRO-004 which deals with planning for system operation during both normal and emergency conditions and during system restoration. Finally, you will review NERC’s requirements for reliability coordinators as set out in Standard EOP-006.
