153 Course Descriptions Powerline ______________________________________________________ PWL168-C DC Theory 2 DC Theory is an introductory course. Both theory and hands-on training are provided to cover the basic concepts of electricity. You will acquire a firm grasp of the fundamentals, concepts, and principles of DC theory. Corequisite: Math Elective PWL169-C AC Theory 2 AC Theory is a course that utilizes a combination of lab and classroom instruction to study alternating current. The effects of resistors, inductors, and capacitors in circuits will be covered. Series and parallel RL, RC, RLC circuits, and power factors are also included. Prerequisite: PWL168-C; Corequisite: Math Elective PWL170-C Field Training I 4 Field Training I consists of actual hands-on experience in an out-of-doors college laboratory. This experience parallels the basics learned by a first-year line apprentice. Setting poles with a digger truck, framing poles, climbing, stringing conductors, installing anchors, and safety are taught. Corequisite: PWL175-C PWL172-C Field Training II 4 During this phase of the field training, you will concentrate on accuracy in framing different types of single-phase and three-phase specifications, installing single-phase and threephase grounding sets, and installing various line protection devices. You will be provided the opportunity to obtain a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) during this course. Prerequisite: PWL170-C; Corequisite: PWL177-C PWL174-C Field Training III 4 This course is in the outdoor lab. It is the hands-on application of transformer installations and services, both single-phase and three-phase. The course goes hand-in-hand with the transformer theory learned in the classroom. Prerequisite: PWL172-C; Corequisite: PWL179-C PWL175-C Trade Fundamentals I 3 This course is designed to give the beginning line worker the basic information of the responsibilities of a line worker. It will supply technical information to support the hands-on application in the outdoor lab. Corequisite: PWL170-C PWL176-C Field Training IV 4 This course covers some of the general maintenance and repairs performed by line crews. It covers safety procedure practices for de-energized, as well as energized maintenance, utilizing both hot sticking and rubber gloving techniques. Also covered is hot sticking techniques used for transmission line maintenance. Prerequisite: PWL174-C; Corequisite: PWL183-C PWL177-C Trade Fundamentals II 3 This course will cover the operation of line protection devices and the safety procedures required to coordinate such devices. Various single-phase and three-phase construction specifications will be covered. Requirements for equi-potential grounding will be covered and applications of various grounding techniques. Also covered during this course will be the CDL requirements needed to obtain a Class A. Prerequisite: PWL175-C; Corequisites: PWL169-C, PWL172-C PWL178-C Field Training V 4 This course will cover the operation and maintenance of substations. Tasks include basic cable preparation and installation and trencher/backhoe operation. Also covered is the installation and maintenance of high voltage underground distribution systems. Prerequisite: PWL176-C; Corequisites: PWL182-C, PWL186-C PWL179-C Transformer Theory 5 This course introduces you to the transformation of electricity to obtain useful voltages, basic parts of a transformer and how it works, and discussion of single-phase and many three-phase services and troubleshooting. Lab simulation using miniature transformers reinforces the class work. Prerequisites: PWL169-C, PWL177-C; Corequisite: PWL174-C PWL180-E Transformers/LTC/Capacitors/Regulators 3 This course covers the construction, purpose, uses and calculations for distribution transformers. The course will also study the installation of single and/or three phase banking practices that are used in the private and public sector of the electric utility industry. Autotransformers used in the transmission and distribution of small and large blocks of power will also be studied. Reclosers, circuit breakers and protective devices such as fuses, lightning arresters, circuit switches and other related equipment will also be covered. Capacitors and voltage regulators will be discussed as to controlling voltage loss and power factor. Prerequisite: ELE121-E PWL182-C Underground Distribution 3 This course provides you with the opportunity to learn the theory and construction of high voltage, direct burial underground cables, enclosures, terminations, and specifications. Corequisite: PWL178-C PWL183-C Line Maintenance 3 This course is primarily designed to teach you the importance of continuity of service to the customer while protecting other workers and the public. This part of the program consists of maintenance work, troubleshooting, and repairs using all necessary safety procedures. You will receive First Aid Training. You will also participate in tree trimming and chain saw safety. Prerequisites: PWL179-C, PWL174-C; Corequisite: PWL176-C PWL184-E Substations 4 This course consists of actual hands-on experience in an out-of-doors college laboratory. This experience parallels the basics learned in an apprentice program. The course will cover substation planning, construction and operation and maintenance. Prerequisite: ELT335-E; Corequisites: ELT337-E, ELT336-E PWL180-E PWL185-E Advanced Substations 4 This course is a continuation of substations; with an emphasis on diagnostic troubleshooting and repair for various scenarios. Prerequisite: PWL184-E PWL186-C Transmission and Distribution 3 This course is designed to give you an overview of the electrical service network from generation transmission to distribution. It will cover generators, switching, and substations, load management systems, and controls. Powerline program. Corequisite: PWL178-C
