LinkedIn Testimonials

  • I have now completed a couple of seminars / courses (Fundamentals of Power System Protection and Distance Protection training at QUT) with Barrie and once again could not ask for more. Barrie is an expert in Power Systems Protection and spares no effort to pass on his knowledge, striving to share his extensive knowledge in the topics at hand, Barrie impresses all. I will not hesitate to take another training course lectured by Barrie. I look forward to the next opportunity in power systems protection run by Barrie Moor.
  • Barrie is the best protection engineer I have had the pleasure to work with… They do not make protection experts like Barrie anymore…
  • Having worked with Barrie on numerous projects and whilst standardising Control Systems interface designs to protection schemes and plant, as well as experiencing Barrie’s protection systems and schemes training, I can readily attest that Barrie is an authority in the field of protection. His knowledge across all levels of protection (systems, design, theory) and ability to communicate (design, training) are astounding. Credit well deserved.
