High Voltage AC Power, Part 1

4.0 1 Review SKU: TDHV100CENDuration: 60 Minutes

The purpose of this course is to introduce transmission and distribution (T&D) personnel to some of the factors that influence transmission efficiency and power loss. The course explains how T&D systems are designed to minimize power loss and how resistance, capacitive reactance, and inductive reactance can be manipulated to help maintain minimum levels of power loss. At the conclusion of this course, participants should know what power loss is and how power loss is affected by impedance. They should understand that impedance comes from resistance, capacitive reactance, and inductive reactance.
