G Kenyon Technology Ltd and Advanced Further Energy Ltd, as contents partners with the IET Academy, have developed an on-line course for designers and installers using the IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems. The course has been compiled using the expertise of Dr Andrew Crossland and Graham Kenyon.
The course is suitable for electrical engineers, designers, technicians, consultants and electricians having a working knowledge of BS 7671 IET Wiring Regulations.
Incorporates the recently published 2nd Edition of the IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems.
Electrical energy storage systems (EESS) are widely considered to be vital in supporting the low carbon transition, including managing renewable generation, supporting networks and helping decarbonise transportation. This course covers design, modelling and installation of stationary EESS within the wider context of decarbonisation and flexibility.
Learners will gain an understanding of the 2nd Edition of the IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems, including the steps involved in the planning, installation and commissioning of electrical energy storage systems as well as safe system design. They will also learn how to best make electrical energy storage work to optimise usage of local generation, off-grid and parallel operation.
Topics covered in the course include major components, typical architectures, storage types, operating states, planning, inspection and testing, design, specification, modelling and safety. The course also looks at EESS operation and maintenance, handover and documentation, and network connection/DNO approval.
