Loctation: ETL 111


This 2 Day class shows you how to perform both a Protective Device Coordination Study and Short Circuit Studies. Many studies today are performed using computer simulations, however it is very important to have a solid understanding of the study fundamentals. Learn how to determine a device's adequacy as well as select a device's settings using time current curves. Draw time current curves and perform the detailed studies.
