AC Power Transmission Training System
AC Power Transmission Training System

MODEL: 8010-B



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.
