About this Course

Course 401: Power Line Design & Staking, Level 4 – 3.5 days


Pre-requisite: Successful completion of Power Line Design & Staking, Levels 1, 2 and 3
 

Hours: 21    CEUs: 2.1(PDHs: 21)
 

In Level 4 of the Power Line Design series, students will be taken beyond the basics of power line design and staking and will focus on reliability and efficiency. They will discuss the aging power infrastructure and system reliability. Students will look at mechanical loading for multi-circuits, will learn about commercial load sizing and will be guided through the process of calculating loads on manufactured products. Students will review NESC and will learn when and how to apply Rule 250 C and D. Classroom discussion will include a brief look at how local requirements and/or RUS standards and bulletins incorporate (and compare to) NESC rules. They will spend time learning about system protection and balance, including proper protective equipment selection and placement. Students will also discuss storm preparation (hardening of the system) and recovery (getting the system back operational). Course handbook provided.

NOTE: Students need to bring a copy of the current 2017 NESC to class (not included in course materials) and a scientific calculator (one was provided in the Level 1 class - graphing function not required).
