# Symmetrical Components of Three Phase Power Analysis

In this course, you will learn exactly what symmetrical components are, their main advantages, how manufacturers of equipment use it. You will learn how to use symmetrical components to simplify asymmetrical three phase voltages and current to understand fault analysis used in modern day protection. The final exam and certification are included.

## What's included

This Course “Short Circuit Analysis for HV Three Phase Systems” introduces the student to the basic concepts of fault studies on a high voltage three phase system. With the help of a quick review of “Per Phase” & “Per Unit” methodologies system faults are analyzed with the use of symmetrical components. System modeling is then used in order to aid in the process, with the ability to move between asymmetrical and symmetrical systems.

At the end of this Course the student will understand the basic concepts of fault studies on a high voltage three phase system. The student will understand the methodologies of system faults and be able to analyse faults using symmetrical components.

System modeling is then used to aid in the process, with the ability to move between asymmetrical and symmetrical systems.
