ABOUT THE COURSE

The Transmission Line Routing and Design is primarily designed to acquire an understanding of transmission line fundamental components & designing. Also, to present the most advanced methodologies and concepts to transmission lines Analysis. The address will externalize the structure along with the transmission line basics. Entrants will get an opportunity to understand the transmission market strategies, state of the art techniques & most importantly the foundation of transmission lines. In deeper depths, this course will provide you with the latest criteria and techniques that are used to design transmission lines substructure and composition. A total insight of understanding the line behavior and how to upgrade existing transmission lines, as well as overhead line parameters, including line series impedance and line, shut admittance. The salient agenda of this course is devised to meet interests & to further apprehend constructional features, maintenance and routine testing of the transmission lines. The participants will gain an understanding of typical tasks related to overhead line planning. Variations and Calculations of the insulation coordination method will also be discussed. Expert solutions will be elaborated and explained in the form of examples using traditional design methods along with the native problems in the transmission lines. This personalized course will guide network owners to ameliorate the asset performance and assimilate for better reliability and lower costs. Already experienced individuals will certainly benefit from this course.
