PGE is pleased to offer a series of comprehensive power systems training services and courses. Since the program's inception, PGE has trained hundreds of utility company professionals. Courses have been specifically developed for engineers, engineering technicians, and field relay technicians, and aim to provide attendees with a strong basis of knowledge in relay protection philosophy and design theory. We offer four extensive power systems training services, or courses, which have been approved by the Florida Board of Professional Engineers for CEU/PDH credits. Continue below for further course details.
In addition to the Relay Philosophies training courses, we are equipped to provide a more individualized program of courses specifically developed to meet the training and professional development needs of our clientele.

“Mr. Ashton’s lectures on power systems protection is easy to understand and very clear. I highly recommend his class to all individuals who want to learn more about protective relay philosophies, commissioning and testing.”
“This class is excellent. It should be an absolute addition to any corporations’ training program. I had the recent privilege to experience Rick’s class, and after being in this field for 12 years, I was able to relate to the topics discussed, and learn some new information as well.”
“I enjoyed the bus differentials protection. This particular section helped bridge the gap between what I do daily at work and what was taught when in college.”
“Michael did a fantastic job of conveying the complex concepts in a manner that anyone can understand without boring the people who already have a solid understanding of the material.”
“It takes a somewhat overwhelming amount of information and breaks it down into easy steps to follow.”
“Very good overview that had enough depth to answer the questions I didn’t even know to ask.”
“Mr. Young is very knowledgeable on this subject. It is clear that this information is second nature to him.”
Power Systems 101 is geared toward answering many of the big picture questions about Protection & Control. This class is beneficial for hands-on field technicians, new protection & control engineers and other utility company staff that want to know more about how a power system works.
Power Systems 102 seminar provides a look at generation, capacitor banks, reactor banks, underfrequency, DC systems, distribution protection and communication systems. Although PGE Power Systems 101 is a preferred prerequisite, PGE Power Systems 102 is a stand-alone class.
Power Systems 103 Seminar is geared toward answering fundamental questions about Field Commissioning of Protection and Control Equipment. This class is beneficial for hands-on field technicians, new protection & control engineers and other utility company staff that want to know more about field testing. This class assumes a knowledge of topics covered in Power Systems 101 and Power Systems 102.
Power Systems 104 Seminar* is a stand-alone class that has been presented for over a decade. This seminar was developed for Relay Technicians by a Relay Technician. It provides the students with in-depth knowledge of how the protective relays work so the Relay Technician can better understand how the protective relay tests must work when executing testing & commissioning activities.
Each course has been designed as a stand alone course. All courses have been approved by the Florida Board of Professional Engineers for professional development hours and is led by a team of professional degreed electrical engineers and subject matter experts, committed to providing attendees with a high quality learning experience. Power Systems 101, 102 and 103 have been approved for 32 professional development hours; Power Systems 104 has been approved for 24.
Each participant completing the course successfully will earn PDHs. For attendees seeking PE credits for other states, please check your state's PDH regulations or contact us for more information. A certificate of completion, showing the accumulated PDHs earned, will be provided at the end of the course.
