AC Power Transmission Training System



The AC Power Transmission Training System combines a modular design approach with computer-based data acquisition and control to provide unrivaled training in ac power transmission systems to students having a basic knowledge in electric power technology (dc power circuits, single-phase ac power circuits, and single-phase power transformers). The system features the Data Acquisition and Control Interface, Model 9063, a state-of-the-art USB peripheral that greatly enhance the learning experience of students.

Training begins with the following two courses:

• Three-Phase AC Power Circuits

• Three-Phase Transformer Banks

These courses introduce students to the fundamentals of three-phase ac power circuits (wye and delta configurations, three-phase ac power measurement, phase sequence), as well as to the operating characteristics of three-phase transformer banks, which are an essential component in ac power transmission systems. Training continues with the main course of the AC Power Transmission Training System:

• AC Transmission Lines

This course is the core of the training system and introduces students to the characteristics and behavior of high-voltage ac transmission lines, as well as to the voltage compensation of these lines using switched shunt compensation (SSC). It covers a multitude of topics related to high-voltage transmission lines, such as voltage regulation characteristics, characteristic impedance, natural load, corrected PI equivalent circuit, power voltage curve, line length, and active power transmission.

The following four courses from the Electric Power Technology Training Program can be optionally added to the AC Power Transmission Training System to provide students with the basic knowledge of electric power technology required to study ac power transmission systems:

• DC Power Circuits

• Single-Phase AC Power Circuits

• Single-Phase Power Transformers

• Three-Phase Rotating Machines

These four courses familiarize the student with the fundamentals of dc power circuits and single-phase ac power circuits, as well as with the operating characteristics of single-phase power transformers and three-phase rotating machines (notably the three-phase synchronous generator).

Features & Benefits

  • The training system teaches the principles of ac power transmission directly in the laboratory. To this end, students follow a complete curriculum that includes these topics:
    • An introduction to three-phase ac power circuits and three-phase transformer banks, necessary concepts in the study of ac power transmission.
    • A complete course that covers extensively the principles, characteristics, and operation of ac transmission lines.
    • Optional courses that provide the basic knowledge of electric power technology required to study ac power transmission.
  • The course curriculum of the Electric Power Technology Training Program is highly flexible and allows a multitude of different customized training solutions.
  • The courseware includes student manuals and instructor guides with all the theory required to perform the hands-on experiments.
  • All workstations, modules, and components are sturdy and protected against electrical damage to ensure a prolonged service life in a demanding environment such as a training laboratory.
  • The modular design approach of the training equipment allows a large variety of courses to be performed using a small number of modules, without unnecessary duplication of equipment.
  • All electrical components can be interconnected without electric shock hazard since all live parts of the connection leads are concealed and insulated.
  • All electrical symbols representing the components used in a laboratory exercise are clearly silk-screened on the front panel of the modules.
  • The training system includes a highly versatile USB peripheral:
    • Data Acquisition and Control Interface, Model 9063. This module gives access to a large variety of computer-based measuring instruments via the LVDAC-EMS software.
  • Software upgrades for LVDAC-EMS and firmware upgrades for the Data Acquisition and Control Interface are available for download free of charge on the Festo Didactic website.
