India PLS-CADD Seminar - Design of Transmission and Distribution Lines in PLS-CADD

This five day course will teach attendees how to use the design programs for transmission and distribution projects produced by Power Line Systems (PLS). It will deliver the required understanding to create efficient, optimal designs. Modules include criteria development, structure design, conductor sagging and plan and profile drawings.

Who Should Attend?

The course is intended for powerline engineers and technicians. Attendees should have a basic understanding of overhead line design concepts already. The class focuses on the use of the software and not on the fundamentals of line design.
