EURAMET Training Course on Electrical Power, Energy and Power Quality Measurement and Calculation of Measurement Uncertainty

TÜBITAK-UME, Gebze, Kocaeli, Turkey, 11-15 March 2019 and 18-22 March 2019 (course repeated)

Objective
The training course aims to provide less experienced laboratory staff in EURAMET NMI/DIs with a better knowledge of measurements in Electrical Power, Energy and Power Quality.

During the course, participants will receive comprehensive theoretical lectures and perform practical measurement in laboratories. They will also do exercises in the calculation of related measurement uncertainty for AC power & energy measurements including precision active, reactive and apparent power measurements, as well as power quality parameters (harmonics and flicker).

The course will comprise a mixture of approximately 2 days of formal lectures and 3 days of practical sessions.

Who should attend? 
Staff from EURAMET NMI/DIs working in electrical power, energy and power quality measurements, but who are less experienced in measuring these quantities and parameters. Participants are expected to have basic knowledge of measurement of those quantities and parameters.

Programme outline

Lectures

  • AC Power & Energy Measurements in general

A visit to TÜBITAK-UME laboratories may also be arranged.

The trainers are

  • Hüseyin Çaycı, TÜBITAK-UME
  • Tansu Kefeli, TÜBITAK-UME
  • Özlem Yılmaz, TÜBITAK-UME
  • Burak AYHAN, TÜBİTAK-UME


Participant eligibility

EURAMET NMIs and DIs; further participant according to availability and upon invitation.

Additional information
Please note that two training courses will be held in parallel at the same time:

  • Electrical Power, Energy and Power Quality Measurement and Calculation of Measurement Uncertainty
  • EURAMET Training Course on Calibration of Measuring Transformers


Each training course will run twice in consecutive weeks (week of 11 March and week 18 of March), enabling participants to attend both courses, if they want to do so. Due to limited space in laboratories, number of participants per session in each training course is limited to 5.
The allocation of participants to the course times will be done after the registration is concluded.

Registration
Participation is free of charge, but registration is necessary. Maximum number of participants is 10 (5 participants per repetition). Please register here >>

Registration will be open until 14 February 2019. However, the registration may be closed earlier if all available places are filled. Participation will be confirmed by 15 February 2019 at latest.

Accommodation
Participants are kindly asked to arrange travel and accommodation themselves. Information about suitable accommodation and transfer is available here >>
