Welcome to IEEE Power & Energy Society's Plain Talk About the Electric Power Industry Courses
 
IEEE PES PLAIN TALK courses for the power industry professional will help you to understand technical aspects of the electric power industry, even if you do not have an engineering background. You will gain insights into the concerns of engineers, the demands of regulators and consumer groups, and the factors and trends that impact the operation of today's electric power systems. These courses are also appropriate for new engineers to the industry, or for engineers in other fields who are transitioning to the electric power industry.
THE COURSE CURRICULUM includes:
  • Day 1:  Power System Basics - Understanding the Electric Utility Operation Inside and Out
  • Day 2:  Distribution System - Delivering Power to the Customer
  • Day 3:  Transmission System - The Interconnected Bulk Electric System
 
THE ELECTRIC POWER SYSTEM enables our economy and society to function. In some way everything that impacts our lives, from where we live to where we work, from our government to our infrastructure, is dependent on a secure and reliable supply of electricity. Yet many individuals, including those who work in or with the electric power industry, do not have a basic understanding of the electric power system, how it operates or how it is evolving.
 
These courses aim to increase your understanding of the electric power system by providing you with practical knowledge that you can use as you work in or with this important industry.
 
PLAN TO ATTEND if you work within the power industry in a non-engineering capacity, or if you are a new power engineer or one transitioning to the power industry from another field. Others who would benefit from the courses are those who work with the industry, such as utility board members, business executives, power brokers, power marketers, government officials, regulatory or legislative staff members, public affairs administrators, media professionals, attorneys, economists, accountants, or anyone with an interest in learning about the electric power systems upon which we all depend.
