Committed to warranting access to energy through training, technical support and investment, Schneider Electric has announced that it is conducting a two week long, Annual Analysis and Protection of Power Systems (APPS) Course for engineers and technical experts for utilities, OEMs and large industries. In line with the government’s National Training Policy (NTP) that lays emphasis on the need to impart training for all in the power sector, the course is designed for engineers seeking to enhance their expertise in protection and control automation and application for Transmission and Distribution power systems with a focus on new digitised power systems.
The training involves a mix of theoretical and practical learning sessions which include engagement sessions with leaders from Schneider Electric and also networking with peers from across India. The programme also includes a ‘Bold Ideas’ presentation session from the participants.The trainees this year were also addressed by Bakshi Ram Bhogal, G.G.M. & HOD (Elect.), Engineers India Limited who shared his learnings in the space with the participants.
Talking about the need to access training in the power sector, Bhogalsaid, “Energy is a key enabler for the country’s economic development. Other than economic growth critical human developmental parameters like poverty reduction, employment generation, etc. are considerably dependent on secure energy supply. Also, the power sector has seen a transformational change with Government of India’s ‘Power for All’ Initiative with modern day technologies playing a pivotal role. With the growth of digitisation in the power sector, the jobs in the sector are getting highly specialised and there is a learning gap that needs to be addressed urgently.”
Speaking on the training programme, Ponniah Sankarakumar, Director, Marketing & Strategy, Energy Business, Schneider Electric India Pvt Ltd, said,“Sharing best practices and empowering our customers with skills to front end the digital change in the energy sector, is core to what we do at Schneider Electric. Technologies are transforming our lives and impacting infrastructure. The future demands smarter and sustainable solutions, and a new generation of talent to deliver them. With this course we aim to provide life like situations on real equipment to engineers and technical experts, to support them in scaling up their learning.”
