Webinar Description:
This webinar will present an overview of a Power System Educational Program, developed for DEED members in a collaboration between Memphis Light, Gas and Water (MLGW) and faculty and graduate students at the University of Memphis. This power system curriculum was created to provide better on-the-job training for new engineers and other electric utility staff in need of practical, continuing education in this topic area.

Although this project was developed to provide on the job training for existing engineers at MLGW, it may be used by any DEED member across the country interested in providing their staff with more detailed knowledge of power systems. This course will be especially useful for staff who may not be able to take a college course, but, who need power system training and exposure to the concepts of modern power networks.

This 23-chapter program is rich with knowledge and will enable students and utility engineers everywhere to design and implement new and innovative power networks. The content of this program is highly relevant to all public power utilities, and now it’s accessible to all DEED members!
