This course presents an overview of all the components of modern
electrical transmission and distribution (T&D) systems, their
application and arrangement, describing all their major, auxiliary and
control equipment, listing typical engineering issues associated with
T&D systems design and engineering and providing recommendations for
addressing these issues. This course is based on a "down-to-earth"
delivery, which is achieved through a very tight connection of material
with real life power industry specifics, and emphasis on exercises and
