image_voltage_controlThis online training course is intended to provide an overview to the Bulk Electric System and the transmission facilities that exists. It is intended to provide students with the basics understanding of the components of the transmission system. Topics covered in this course include: reactive power flow, causes of low voltage, causes of high voltage, effects of low voltage, effects of high voltage, and the purpose and operation of voltage control equipment.

Module Objectives:

  • Identify flow of reactive power
  • Define causes of low voltage
  • Define causes of high voltage
  • Identify effects of low voltage
  • Identify effects of high voltage
  • Define the purpose and operation of voltage control equipment

Each lesson area in this course is culminated with a review and a quiz. Upon completion of the course, there is a final assessment that consists of 10 questions. Individuals must attain a passing grade of 70% on the final assessment in order to be awarded the appropriate NERC CEHs.

The class is intended for: new operators to the system that will have the responsibility of voltage control; generation operators who want to expand their knowledge of system voltage control; individuals who desire additional information related to how voltage is controlled on the Bulk Electric System; and those individuals trying to understand transmission equipment as part of NERC Certification Preparation.
