Eaton Network Engineering Training

Eaton Network Engineering Training

September 1 - 3, 2020

Eaton offers a Network Engineering Training course geared toward utility engineers who are required to understand and design Network systems. Each day will begin at 8:00 am starting on Tuesday and conclude on Thursday at 12:00 noon.

Why Attend?

The unique operation of Network Systems requires specialized training to insure adequate equipment selection, which includes network protectors, transformers, fuses and associated equipment. Because companies expand and widen areas of responsibilities, many times, the experience gained on Network systems is lost and further training is required. 


   Day 1 - Tuesday, September 1, 2020
                    General Overview of Network Systems and Equipment
                    Network Circuit Analysis Concepts
                    MPCV Relay Theory and Application
                    Network Fuse and Cable Limiter Application

   Day 2 - Wednesday, September 2, 2020
                    Network Transformers and Loading
                    Arcflash Solutions in Secondary Networks
                    Network Vault Communications and Safety
                    Mitigating the Unprotected Zone in Network Protectors
                    Case Studies and Lessons Learned

   Day 3 -Thursday, September 3, 2020
                    CYME modeling for Networks**

*This is an engineering level course that includes mathematical computations. A scientific calculator is recommended. A Laptop PC with MS Excel is required for class participation.

**Interactive CYME modeling will be performed in class. Upon registering please contact Stephanie Skrbin at (412) 262-7960 or Tony Oruga at (864) 330-2461 for a temporary license of the CYME software for use during this training.
Note - If you have CYME already installed you will need access to the Network System Modeling Module.
