Substation Fundamentals

February 22-23, 2022 | Online :: Central Time

“This class was well thought out and put together with a lot of detailed information to help understand more about substations. I would highly recommend this class to all who seek further education on the basics of substation design and operations.” Sr. Civil Engineer, Kiewit

“EUCI courses have three fundamental characteristics: substance, substance, and substance. Time and money well spent.” Assistant GM-Power Supply, Burbank Water and Power

“This course gave me a broad understanding of a substation application from the basics of electricity to the final construction phase.” Transmission and Substation Specialist, Hubbell Power Systems

This course will provide attendees with the basics of transmission to distribution substations and all the major components. After a detail explanation of substation devices, the discussion moves quickly into common issues with regard to construction, operation and maintenance with special emphasis on safety awareness. This material provides a basis of understanding for project managers, procurement agents and other non-technical personnel.
