Basic considerations. Load characteristics and forecasting methods. Distribution substations. Subtransmission, primary and secondary distribution. Choice of voltage levels. Operational characteristics of cables, aerial lines and transformers. System voltage regulation. Power factor correction. Fusegear, switchgear, current and voltage transformers. Overcurrent and thermal protection. Economics of distribution systems. Distributed generation within the distributive systems

COURSE OBJECTIVE
This module imparts knowledge and skills to enable the learner to select and specify the components of an electrical distribution system. The module introduces modelling and analysis of electrical power dystribution systems, review of electric power distribution systems currently used by electric utility companies from the generating plant to the customer\'s service, choice of voltage levels, operational characteristics of cables, aerial lines and transformers.
