Electric Power Engineering is a very wide field with many areas of work. The preparation for careers in Electric Power Engineering is explained along with professional registration and professional societies. I have had a long career, with several employers, and some different job titles. My focus has been power system studies. Some of the major types of studies, Short Circuit, Load Flow, Protective Device Coordination, Arc Flash Hazard analysis, Harmonics, Stability and Surge Protection are explained along with some examples of notable experiences. The power system engineer has many opportunities for world travel and challenging assignments.
