About Electrical Substation Design

The Certificate Program in Electrical Substation Design was made keeping in mind the fact that the power demand in India is increasing rapidly due to an increase in industrial, commercial, agricultural, and even residential consumers. To meet consumer demand, more generating stations are needed which are far away from consumers. To transmit large amounts of power up to long-distance, high voltage and extra-high voltage lines are necessary to transmit huge blocks of power. In between power stations and consumers, transformation and switching stations called substations are necessary for the control of electrical power systems reliably. The substation is a very important part of the power system. Reliability, Security, and Operational Safety of substations are the main concerns for any design engineer. This course will provide practical knowledge to the students about designing substations considering international standards.
