Underground Transmission Fundamentals

Underground Transmission Fundamentals

August 16-17, 2022 | Online :: Central Time

Underground transmission is a costly and complicated option for transmission projects. This course will provide an in-depth overview of underground systems, technology, construction, and installation. This is the ideal course for engineers new to underground transmission projects, regulatory staff that needs an overview to evaluate project options and vendors and contractors that support utilities as they build new transmission.

Learning Outcomes

  • Review underground transmission technology and systems
  • Examine the basics of underground design and construction
  • Delve into the details of cable design and manufacturing
  • Review the considerations that affect cable system ampacity
  • Discuss the design, operation and maintenance of solid dielectric cable systems
  • Discuss the design, operation and maintenance of high-pressure fluid-filled cable systems

      Instructors

      Dennis Johnson, Senior Project Engineer, POWER Engineers

      Dennis Johnson has more than 30 years of experience in the design and construction of underground transmission and distribution systems. He has served as a design and project engineer on numerous underground transmission projects at voltages ranging from 69 kV to 500 kV. Mr. Johnson is an active voting member of the IEEE Insulated Conductors Committee (ICC). He is a member of various ICC subcommittees that are developing guides and standards for high voltage underground cable systems.


      Todd Goyette, Senior Project Engineer, POWER Engineers

      Todd Goyette joined POWER Engineers in November of 2012 and is a senior project engineer in the underground transmission group. He has over 24 years of experience in many aspects of high voltage and extra high voltage underground cable projects including design, permitting & licensing, construction and operation & maintenance. He has experience with self-contained fluid filled, high pressure fluid filled, high pressure gas filled and extruded dielectric cable systems. Prior to joining POWER, Todd worked for National Grid, a large investor-based utility, for 18 years performing similar functions. He serves on several working group committees for the IEEE Insulated Conductors Committee. He holds a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and is a registered Professional Engineer in several New England states.

      Online Delivery
