Who Should Attend

This training course will be valuable to participants who work in the power industry from generator companies to transmission and distribution system operators. It is also valuable to engineers in building services where protection is applied to 11kV supply points and below to the LV distribution. Engineers working in oil and gas industry who are involved in electrical aspects of the industry such as HV & LV motors and electricity equipment will gain from the course.

Course Faculty - Jelica Polimac

jelicapolimacJelica Polimac has extensive experience in the design, erection, and refurbishment of transmission and distribution networks, HV substations and power plants with a particular expertise in protection, control and auxiliary supply systems. She has managed electrical projects from transmission level of 420kV to 11kV in urban areas with particular emphasis on technical side of the contracts including writing specifications, tender evaluation, design and design review, liaison with contractors,

commissioning and computer aided design. She acted as a Protection & Control Engineer, Plant Engineer, and Commissioning Officer Advanced for many transmission National Grid projects.

Working for well know companies such as Kennedy & Donkin, Parsons Brinkerhoff, Mott Mc Donald, London Underground and London Electricity she was also involved in power plant, distribution and transportation projects.

Jelica gained experience in Asset management, and reliability assessment working on London Underground’ projects, such as strategy and assessment of reliability in the 22/11/0.4kV underground railway network, Age profile for key assets in LU network, and Renewals and Upgrades of assets in the London Underground network.

Jelica has also been responsible for developing new computer applications for the design of HV and MV projects. The applications included standardising design procedures, standardising symbols, creating a package of commands written in the relevant computer languages and providing user manuals. She was involved in the implementation of the software package for automatic processing cable connections and wiring diagrams from CAD schematic drawings. In addition, she has had responsibility for standardising general design, design methods, procedures, calculations, symbols, and an item identification system in electrical engineering, as well as the naming convention of all documents in transmission & distribution companies.
