This highly-interactive training course will introduce you to the equipment that makes up an electric substation. It will explain how each type of equipment operates and guide you through the control and wiring diagrams that control equipment operation.
Recent technological developments have had tremendous impact on all aspects of substation design, operation, maintenance, safety, and grounding, testing and troubleshooting. A substation is a high – voltage electric system facility. It is used to switch generators, equipment, and circuits or lines in and out of a system. It is also used to change AC voltages from one level to another, and/or change alternating current to direct current or direct current to alternating current.
Knowledge of equipment condition allows you to target your maintenance efforts to reduce equipment failures and improve substation reliability. Applying predictive maintenance methods can reduce your costs and improve the performance of your maintenance program. This Coventry Academy training course will show you methods and case studies that illustrate how to incorporate these new methods and testing techniques to improve reliability and optimize your existing maintenance program. You will study the latest testing technologies and how to apply them to determine the condition of oil and gas insulated transformers, circuit breakers, and other electrical equipment. Electrical substation safety is an important issue in utility networks as well as large industrial installations and requires adequate attention in the stages of system planning, design, installation, operation and maintenance. In this training course, we will take a look at the theoretical aspects of safety as well as the practical and statutory issues.
