This course will look at the various types of control equipment present on the system and describe the general operating characteristics of these control systems. Students will learn how the excitation system works to control power system voltages and explore the role of the automatic generation control system (AGC) in system performance.
The course will also discuss the controls the operator can use to help a system return to a steady state approaching normal conditions and the different types of protective relays and how and when they operate.

In case of reporting failure, your credits would be manually reported within 48 hours. It is important to provide the correct License Number in order to obtain the completion certificate and get reported. You can also use this Certificate for PDH Reporting and reporting to any other Regulator (example PJM, etc.).
RCEP: If you selected this option at the course launch, you will NOT receive a certificate directly from the training page. Instead, your credits will be reported to RCEP and you would receive a certificate from them through email.360training: If you selected this option at the course launch, you are seeking NO credit reporting. The training you are taking is for professional development only. You will receive a generic 360 certificate."
You will not be required to pass the knowledge check questions to move on to the next lesson. These will not be counted as a grade, but each question gives you insight into what you should have learned and the sorts of things you'll need to remember moving forward.
