Timothy L. O'Hearn, PE
This 9-hour course covers the application of indoor and outdoor high-voltage circuit breakers rated above 1,000 V for use in commercial, industrial, and utility installations. It deals with usage under varied service conditions, temperature conditions affecting continuous current compensation, reduced dielectrics, reclosing derating as applicable, calculation of system short-circuit current, compensation at different X/R ratios, detailed calculations with application curves, out-of-phase switching, and general application. The course materials are based entirely on IEEE C37.010-1999 (R2005) Application Guide for AC High-Voltage Circuit Breakers Rated on a Symmetrical Current Basis. It will be necessary for the student to obtain a copy of IEEE C37.010-1999 (R2005). This is a very useful resource and is recommended that all practicing electrical or project engineers involved in the specification, design, installation, and maintenance of high-voltage circuit breakers rated in accordance with the methods given in IEEE Std C37.04-1999, listed in IEEE Std C37.06-1997, and tested in accordance with IEEE Std C37.09-1999 be familiar with and up to date with the application procedures in this guide.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
