Single Course Descriptions

2701 THE HYDROELECTRIC ROLE IN THE POWER SYSTEM
The objective of this course, the first in the Hydro-Electric Power Series, is to give hydro power plant operators and technicians an understanding of the role of hydro-electric power in the overall power system. The characteristics of different types of hydro plants are briefly discussed in relation to their effect on power system operation. An overview of the power system is presented plus a review of the tasks and responsibilities of the power dispatcher and power system operators.

2702 HYDRO POWER STATIONS
The objective of this course is to introduce the major components of a typical hydro electric power station. A brief overview of each item of equipment is presented noting that detailed study will be shown in subsequent courses in the series. Basic hydraulic principles are also presented as an aid to better understanding of hydro plant operation.

2703 WATER MANAGEMENT
The purpose of this course is to present and discuss all of the functions involving the use and control of water in a hydro-electric scheme. The importance of hydrological records is discussed in relation to hydro power plant planning and operation, and reservoir control.

2704 HYDRO TURBINES
The objective of this course is to present and discuss the structural and functional features of different types of hydro turbines. Certain operational considerations are also presented such as cavitation, tailrace elevation, surge, run away speed, etc.

2705 TURBINE MONITORING AND CONTROL
The objective of this course is to present and discuss types of equipment used to monitor and control the operation of the hydro turbine. Typical examples of mechanical hydraulic and electro hydraulic actuators are demonstrated plus monitoring and protection devices.

2706 THE HYDRO GENERATOR
The objective of this course is to present and discuss the major constructional features of the hydro generator. A review of AC generation fundamentals is also included, as this is considered necessary for complete understanding.

2707 GENERATOR MONITORING AND CONTROL
The objective of this course is to present and discuss supervision of the hydro generator including control, monitoring, and protection. Included is a review of the significance of active and reactive power output from the generator.

2708 HYDRO PLANT AUXILIARIES
The objective of this course is to present and discuss supervision of the hydro generator including control, monitoring, and protection. Included is a review of the significance of active and reactive power output from the generator.

2709 OPERATION OF ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT
The objective of this course is to examine, from the operational point of view, the various items of electrical equipment that are commonly installed in the hydro-electric power plant. The course covers switchyard equipment, station service supply, DC power supply, and uninterruptible AC power supply. Safety of personnel and equipment is also discussed.

2710 HYDRO PLANT OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
The objective of this course is to present and discuss supervision of the hydro generator including control, monitoring, and protection. Included is a review of the significance of active and reactive power output from the generator
