Course content

The course gives a comprehensive introduction to the technologies that are employed in switching equipment, underground power cables and power transformers. The switching equipment sections cover switching over-voltages, the electric arc, arcing media (SF6, vacuum, air, oil), breaker designs, fuses, as well as gas insulated and air insulated substations. The cable part describes various designs and technologies used for underground cables, power rating evaluations, corrosion, and cable termination and splicing. The transformer section covers the electric insulation system, stresses during transient over-voltages, thermal aspects, protection, winding connections, and standards for transformer testing.
