Overview

This course presents the subject of short-circuit studies in a very structured fashion. First, a simple equivalent circuit is developed for a generic power system, system impedances are recalculated to common base and fault are calculated at various locations throughout the system. A detailed explanation is offered for calculation of three phase faults. Explained techniques can be also verified by any commercial power system software package.

Description:

This course presents the subject of short-circuit studies in a very structured fashion. First, a simple equivalent circuit is developed for a generic power system, system impedances are recalculated to common base and fault are calculated at various locations throughout the system. A detailed explanation is offered for calculation of three phase faults. Explained techniques can be also verified by any commercial power system software package.

Short-circuit studies are done to determine the magnitude of the prospective currents flowing throughout the power system at various time intervals after a fault occurs. The magnitude of the currents flowing through the power system after a fault varies with time until they reach a steady-state condition. The information is used to select fuses, breakers, and switchgear ratings in addition to setting protective relays.

This behaviour is due to system characteristics and dynamics. During this time, the protective system is called on to detect, interrupt, and isolate these faults. The duty imposed on this equipment is dependent upon the magnitude of the current, which is dependent on the time from fault inception. This is done for various types of faults (three phase, phase-to-phase, double-phase-to-ground, and phase-to-ground) at different locations throughout the system.

PDH Authority System Requirements

To run our system effectively you should, as a minimum, use the system components listed on this page. If you do not, the system may still work but some functionality may be lost. Workplace IT environments' internal configurations can also restrict the functionality of our system. Access to content may be affected, as may the possibility of uploading files. File size limitations may also apply. Workplaces may also have older versions of software, and our system may not perform well with these.

Operating system

  • Recommended: Windows 7, 10, Mac OSX Sierra, iPad IOS10

Internet speed

  • Use a broadband connection (256 Kbit/sec or faster—this will ensure that you can view videos and online presentations) through USB wireless modem, ADSL, T1/T2, fibre optic or cable.

  • Dial-up access will be significantly slower, and we do not recommend it for using our system.

Internet browsers

    Compatible browsers include:

  • Google Chrome 32 bit version 50 or later (recommended for optimal compatibility, this has been thoroughly tested on Windows)

    Safari 10 or later (recommended for optimal compatibility, this has been thoroughly tested on Mac)

    Note that add-ons and toolbars can affect any browser's performance.

  • MS Internet Explorer is not recommended

Settings

    We recommend that the following be enabled:

  • Cookies

  • Pop-ups (in both Internet browser and security software)

  • Javascript

  • We recommend that you use the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.

Software

  • We recommend that you use the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

  • To view all the resources uploaded to Hazmat Authority, you will probably need to have Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) or an equivalent (e.g. Open Office, Viewer) installed.
