Transmission & Distribution

Power System Operations

Australia’s energy landscape is experiencing unprecedented change, driven by an evolving power supply mix, ageing infrastructure, changing technologies and weather patterns, and consumer preferences.

Thomson Bridge is working with local and international Power Systems Operators and power grid specialists to understand these challenges and develop agile training programs.

Our goal is to provide operators with an effective learning environment to improve and enhance knowledge and confidence that will underpin system efficiency, reliability, security and safety of the electricity network.

Thomson Bridge has joined forces with Incremental Systems Corporation (IncSys), who have 25 years of experience in the application of power grid simulation for power systems training. They are a leader in generic and custom simulation platforms for North American networks.

Our Courses will provide foundation, intermediatory and advanced levels of competency and skill development. Programs are intended to be modular and adapted to meet the various and evolving needs of transmission and distribution networks and energy generators.

Training delivery modes include online self-paced modules and instructor facilitated workshops and multi party scenarios.  Programs incorporate power grid simulation to enable operators to experience normal, abnormal and emergency operation conditions without the risks of interacting with a live power system. 

The Thomson Bridge IncSys Partnership is focused on providing an easy-to-use, cost effective and flexible solutions to our Australian network and generation clients.
