Stephen Brooks is a Chartered Electrical engineer who has worked in the electrical power utility industry for over 30 years as a design engineer, commissioning engineer and construction project manager.
This module has been written to teach non-engineers the basics of electrical power engineering, and will also act as a useful revision tool for electrical graduate engineers or those engineers new to the industry.
The course uses detailed illustrations & simple explanations to convey the topics involved.
Future modules will develop these basic engineering ideas further and use them to show how an electrical power utility system is designed, constructed, tested and operated.
