About the Course

This course familiarizes you with standards and policies of the electric utility industry, and provides you with basic vocabulary used in the business. It introduces the electric power system, from generation of the electricity all the way to the wall plug. You will learn about the segments of the system, and common components like power cables and transformers. This course is for individuals considering a career in the energy field (who have a high school diploma, at minimum, and basic knowledge of mathematics), and existing energy sector employees with less than three years of experience who have not completed similar training and would benefit from a course of foundational industry concepts. The course is a combination of online lectures, videos, readings and discussions. This is the first course in the Energy Production, Distribution & Safety specialization that explores various facets of the power sector, and features a culminating project involving creation of a roadmap to achieve a self-established, energy-related professional goal....

Great entry course. Very easy for those that do not have a background in the subject. I am currently in the process of transitioning industry. It was good for a refresher overview.

Interesting course to understand the basics of electricity and the grid. I think that the facts related to renewable energy should be more up to date since this is a sector that evolves very rapidly.

I feel like in Week 2, the professor should have gone through the concepts in depth.

The course covers only the basics, and revolves around the data obtained from various authorities. It would have been much better if certain working process of devices in the protection switch gear part were explained in a little more detail.
