Learning Outcomes

In this project the student will learn independent data acquisition and is introduced to a 110/20kV substation and the properties of the components of a medium voltage network it supplies and how to choose the components. The student learns electro-technical skills required in calculating rated values and fault current values for the design target and applying them in practical design and documentation. The student also learns team working skills, report writing skills and use of office tools and CAD applications.

Student's Workload

Total work load of the course 82 h
