This online protective relay testing seminar follows Chris Werstiuk (author of The Relay Testing Handbook) as he shows you the basic skills you need to test any digital relay with any modern test-set. Watch this series of videos on any device with speakers or headphones, and a high-speed internet connection. The videos are broken down into logical chunks that you can watch at any time, and in any order, so that you can fit this series into your busy schedule.
Don’t forget that you can always ask questions in the comments section at the bottom of each lesson and topic.
For example, some students have suggested that they want to follow along with their test-sets and relays.
That’s a fantastic idea!
You will get maximum benefit from this seminar if you have a test-set and any digital overcurrent relay so you can follow along. If you can’t find relay settings to download in the “Upload the Relay Settings” lesson, send us the appropriate information about the relay and we’ll add it to the download list.
If you don’t have a practice relay, you can contact a relay manufacturer to request a demo relay, or you can rent one from us by sending us an email with your shipping address.
Another student idea requested a spot for all downloads int he course. That’s another fantastic idea. You can get a comprehensive list of all of the downloads in the Online Seminar Group.
