Electrical Engineering 4 Power 2 (PE), SC 034

About this Course: 

Electrical Engineering 4 Power 2 is one of the many 3-hour review sessions designed for engineers who plan to register as a professional engineer and wish to prepare for the examinations required to achieve this status. Licensed engineers who must fulfill registration requirements for continuing education may choose to take any of these individual classes. Your participation in these classes awards Continuing Education Units (CEU) which will be recorded on your Illinois Institute of Technology transcript.
Online FE-PE Review Sessions: In addition to live in the classroom, ALL FE-PE review sessions are available online. Online sessions provide the convenience of anytime anyplace learning and allow sessions to be viewed multiple times.
The Professional Engineering Review schedule indicates when and at which Illinois Tech campus location each session is presented live. Within 24–72 hours after the live presentation, each session is made available on Illinois Tech’s Blackboard Learning System and remains available for the duration of the review course. Those interested in enrolling in individual sessions who have missed the live presentation date may still participate in the online session. Each session is made available in this way for a two-week period upon enrollment.

Participants should have a degree in engineering and an interest in the topic.

Who Should Attend: 

This course is valuable for engineers interested in a review of the topic especially licensed engineers interested in fulfilling registration requirements for continuing education.

Expected Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of this course, students will:

  • Be able to calculate the impedance for basic three phase and single phase transmission lines (including bundled conductors)
  • Become familiar with the basic transmission line models - short, medium and long and their basic equations
  • Become familiar with the basic load flow models and be able to determine wye bus
  • Be able to calculate fault current for balanced three phase fault
  • Understand the effects of DC offset and different types of generator impedance to a fault
  • Be able to review symmetrical components including basic transformer models. This should include being able to calculate SLG fault current in both symmetrical and phase values
  • Learn basic system protection and will have a basic understanding of fuses, CT circuits, simple overcurrent protection and basic transmission schemes
