Introduction to Transmission and Distribution Systems

4.0 4 Reviews SKU: TDITD00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

The purpose of this course is to teach participants how transmission and distribution (T&D) systems generally deliver to customers the power produced by power plants. The course describes how the major components of a T&D system function and how electricity flows through these components on its journey from the power plant to customers. At the conclusion of this course, participants should have a basic understanding of how transmission and distribution systems operate. They should be able to identify the basic components of a transmission and distribution system and explain their functions. They should also be able to describe the flow path from a power plant, through a typical T&D system, to the customer.

“Most videos loaded quickly, a few didn't and the video start had to be manually controlled. Some course details were too simplistic. Near the end of the course, something went wrong with the video feed and was flagged as an error. Had to restart the service from the MWRD site.”
