AS:NZS 3000-2007
Power-system protection has become increasingly important as a way of protecting electrical power systems from faults through the isolation of faulty parts from the rest of the electrical network. The objective of a protection scheme is to keep the power system stable by isolating only the components that are under fault, whilst leaving as much of the network as possible still in operation. Thus, protection schemes must apply a very pragmatic and pessimistic approach to clearing system faults.
This course is designed to help students to understand the principles of protective systems and their application in real life.
Most important of all, they can improve the safety of the site by making better decisions on system protection.

Power Electronics
Power electronics generally deals with the conversion of electric power. An expert knowledge on the characteristics and operation of power electronic circuits is must for a technical staff to be efficient while working on high power applications. However the major concern in the power electronics area is switching losses during switch ON/OFF which will reduce the efficiency and performance of the system. By involving certain methods, switching losses can be reduced thereby improving the overall efficiency of the system.
Participants can use the skills and gain in-depth knowledge from this work shop on the emerging applications of semiconductor devices that offer higher efficiency.
This course is designed to introduce students to power electronic converters and their recent trends and applications in various fields.

Power system protection
Power system protection is one of the most important aspects of the electrical power industry. Without protection, any stem fails. So it is imperative that safety and protection be given utmost importance to avoid catastrophes.
This course is designed to help students to understand the fundamentals of electric power protection, so that they can choose appropriate protective devices/measures for different components, interpret different protection systems in their plant and also detect short-comings. Simple calculations can be performed too.
Most important of all, they can improve the safety of the site by making better decisions on system protection.

Behrouz Ghorbanian

BSc, MSc, MIEAust

Behrouz has completed degree courses in Telecommunications and Electrical Engineering overseas. He also completed his studies in Electrical Utility Engineering at Curtin University in 2004. Behrouz started his career in the oil and gas industry where his role got him involved in the maintenance and repair of electronic and navigational marine equipment (VHF and SSB radios, Sat Nav, engine control panels etc). He then moved to the power industry and was involved in the design, installation, and commissioning of substations mainly for consultancies and utilities. He has also established a good reputation in teaching power system protection over his long term services lecturing at Curtin University, and also over the period he worked as a Protection Engineer in New Zealand.

Over the past years, Behrouz has been involved in many major projects across Australia (Port Hedland, Barrow Island, Tamar Valley, Karratha, and Newman for example). His most recent experience is related to cost estimation and risk assessment of major substation projects with a special focus on the secondary systems (Protection, COMMS, SCADA). He has also worked as an Engineering Manager and Senior Project Engineer on major copper mine projects overseas. Behrouz has also gained good knowledge in substation design, HV cables sizing and installation, transmission system design, earthing system design and applications, and power system protection design and applications.
