Electrical utilities around the world generate and transmit electrical energy that we all use for our everyday lives. This course starts off covering some basic subjects which are needed so that you can understand how the electrical power equipments are designed, operated and installed.

We then go on to study all of the main equipments that go into an electrical power system, before finally seeing how the power network itself is designed and operated.

The course consists of the following sections:

  • Conductors And Insulators
  • Circuit Breakers
  • Grounding
  • Network Design
  • Low Voltage Systems
  • Electrical Cables
  • Overhead Lines
  • Transformers

At the end of the course you will understand all of the main elements within a power utilities network and understand how they operate together as one seamless system.

What are the requirements?

  • Completion of the electrical power engineering principles course
  • You should be familiar with basic electrical knowledge of voltage, current & power

What will I learn?

  • Understand why the electrical power network looks the way it does
  • Know all about the equipment used in the power network
  • Be able to design a basic electrical power network
  • Understand electrical clearances and how they are used to design equipments
  • Know how to calculate output voltages and currents using the transformer turns ratio
  • Know how electrical discrimination works and how it clears the fault by keeping the healthy electrical system connected
  • Know the difference between insulators and conductors
  • Understand how the circuit breaker types change as the voltages and currents increase
  • Understand how a transmission overhead line is designed using electrical clearances
  • Know how electrical power cables are designed, constructed and installed
  • Understand how the low voltage system in a house is connected
  • Identify the difference between grounded and ungrounded systems
  • Know the difference between touch potentials and step potentials

Who is the target audience?

  • This course is suitable for anyone interested in learning about the electrical power networks that are used throughout the world

Course rating


Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
