Presents the fundamentals of instrument and revenue metering in utilities and industry

Upon completion participants will be familiar with:

  • What is Electric Power
  • AC & DC Power
  • Voltage, Current, & Power Vectors (Phasors)
  • Capacitive & Inductive Loads
  • Real, Reactive & Apparent Power (Watts, Vars, VA)
  • The Dynamometer Wattmeter
  • The Energy Meter
  • Single-Phase Metering
  • Instrument Transformers
    (Current & Voltage CT's & PT's)

  • 3-Wire, Single-Phase Metering
  • Polyphase Energy Meters
  • 3-Wire, Single-Phase Metering with CT's & PT's
  • Metering a 3 Phase 4 Wire Load ("Y" Connected)
  • Metering a 3 Phase 3 Wire Load (Delta Connected)
  • Measurement Canada Standards
  • Blondel’s Theorem 
  • Phase & Line Relationship

Starting with the fundamental definition of “What is Electric Power?” and going on to AC & DC Power measurement, instruments and standard practices in the industry.

Voltage, Current, & Power are then modeled with the use of Vectors (Phasors) and how these then react when applied to Capacitive & Inductive Loads.
 
Real, Reactive & Apparent Power (Watts, Vars, VA) are developed from here and then the fundamental tools of measurement; the Dynamometer Wattmeter and Energy Meter are examined.

Single-Phase Metering and Polyphase Energy Metering along with the use of Instrument Transformers (Current & Voltage CT's & PT's) are studied:

  • 3-Wire, Single-Phase Metering
  • 3-Wire, Single-Phase Metering with CT's & PT's
  • Metering a 3 Phase 4 Wire Load ("Y" Connected)
  • Metering a 3 Phase 3 Wire Load (Delta Connected)
  • Using Measurement Canada Standards.

 

This course can be delivered in two ways:

1) In-person with live instructor. This would take one day along with working examples. 

2) On-line video training which is available now.
