15 - 17 APRIL 2019, SINGAPORE

About The Course

This is a 3 day seminar focusing on the fundamental principles associated with, and the equipment involved in the modern day electricity power system.


This is an introductory, but comprehensive seminar designed to meet the needs of the many non-technical electricity industry employees in the support disciplines such as:

  • Project management
  • Accounting
  • Financial support
  • Legal systems
  • Administration
  • Clerical support
  • Management
  • Human resources
  • Customer care
  • Community relations
  • Directors
  • Office and senior managers


And yes, while this seminar is designed to focus specifically on the needs of the non-technical and support professionals within and associated with the electricity supply industry, it will also provide an invaluable insight for new technical and engineering entrants to the industry.


It is imperative for new engineers, non-technical and support professionals alike to all grasp the jargon, language and technology of the electrical power system. This will enhance their contribution to the industry allowing them to proactively understand and optimize the key business performance objectives and activities.

Learning Outcomes

This seminar will take you from a basic understanding of magnetism and static electricity through to three phase AC power.  This then allows us to introduce you to all of the generation, transmission, distribution, automation and protection infrastructure necessary to bring about a fully functioning electricity power system.


Beginning with basic terms and concepts, this seminar will introduce participants to the power system components and designs associated with electricity generation, transmission, distribution, control, communication and protection systems.


Finally, we conclude with a consideration of Safety in the power system, protecting you and your family, both at home and at work.


This seminar will provide attendees with a fundamental, but comprehensive understanding of the topics:

  • Electricity: Fundamental Principles and Concepts
  • Power Generation
  • Transmission and Distribution Systems
  • Substation Design: HV System Equipment
  • Control and Communication Systems
  • Protection Systems
  • Electrical Safety, at Work and at Home


Apart from our seminar discussion, understanding of topics will be reinforced by numerous video presentations.


Each seminar attendee will also receive a USB Flash Drive including all video presentations.
