This intensive industry training workshop, hosted at the Siemens Swinburne Energy Transition Hub, will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of power systems and PSS®E expert skillsets needed in the energy sector.

We will commence with exploration of power system fundamentals and complexities, followed by hands-on learning with selected power system components to understand their key characteristics.

You will also learn about the PSS®E software for project creation, load modelling, load flow analysis, and power flow results interpretation. In addition, we will also cover fault-level calculations at network buses and grid connection regulations.

Who should attend

This course is for a wide range of participants regardless of prior experience in power systems, including industry professionals seeking to deepen their knowledge, faculty members looking to expand their expertise, or beginner-level students in the field of power systems.
