You will also discover a wide range of scopes of application for smart grids and you will understand the most important aspects about security through real examples of on-going projects and initiatives.

Protective relay testing and diagnosis

This course focuses on discovering the types of tests used to assess protective relays in power systems. It also provides a hands-on experience in defining the settings and parameters of relays and allows you to learn the relevant tests and checks in various real units available for training.

High-voltage line protection

Engineers involved in electrical protection or interested in exploring these systems are welcome to join this course that will allow them to understand the methodologies, devices and protection systems most commonly used in transport lines.

Harmonics in power systems: origin, analysis and filtering solutions

The main goal of this course is to understand the importance of power quality parameters in order to achieve an efficient utilisation of electrical stations, and to discover all steps within a holistic harmonics study, from filtering solutions and dimensioning to field implementation.

Design of substations

Discover the key theoretical and practical aspects in the design, operation and control of substations and transformer stations by joining this course on “Design of substations”.

Substations maintenance

Substation supervision and monitoring, SCADA systems, key maintenance activities, failure risk and life cycle analysis are some of the topics covered by this course. You will thus analyse the fundamental aspects of substations maintenance from a global perspective through a hands-on approach that will enhance your learning about new practices and trends in asset management.

Electric switchgear

This course is aimed at engineers and technicians who wish to obtain a complete view of the switchgear used in different voltage levels. Throughout the course, you will identify the main components of electrical switchgear in high, medium and low voltage networks and you will also understand their applications in generation, transmission and distribution grids.

Power transformers

Review the fundamental concepts of power transformers and the protective techniques against external and internal faults and perturbations and learn the basics about the installation, erection and maintenance of power transformers. The course comprises also a visit to one of the world’s most important power transformers factory to give you a hands-on experience.

Power systems studies and relay coordination

The goal of the course is to familiarize the participants with the different types of power system studies that are performed for industrial and utility electrical power systems. The course emphasizes the criticality of the modelling of the different power system elements for the studies and the methods of extracting this data from the field. It also explains how the analysis results are to be interpreted by comparing the outcomes of the studies with reference to the relevant IEEE standards.


Tailored courses

The Power Consulting training unit is available to develop specific training programmes adapted to your staff, activities and needs. Based on your requirements and our experience, we can design customised courses within Hitachi Energy facilities or at the customer’s premises (also available online now).

In the last years, companies such as Iberdrola, Red Eléctrica de España, Endesa and ArcelorMittal, among others, have relied on our services to train their personnel through tailored learning plans.
