Introduction

This GLOMACS Electrical Engineering training seminar focuses mainly on fault finding and maintenance of electrical equipment.

Electrical equipment within an Electrical Power system plays an important role in the transmission and distribution of electrical power. The equipment needs to be operated and maintained in a safe manner securing continuity of supply to consumers.

This requires the equipment to be: 

  • Assessed to ensure it remains in a safe manner
  • Maintained within an effective management system
  • Aware of the need of maintenance and fault finding techniques balanced against equipment downtime

Objectives

This GLOMACS Fault Finding Techniques on an Electrical Power System training seminar is designed to increase the fault diagnostic skills of engineers and maintenance teams on modern Power systems. The training seminar will progressively advance to identification of faults and the ratification of said faults.

Training Methodology

In this GLOMACS Electrical Engineering training seminar, the goals of each participant are discussed to ensure their needs are fulfilled, as far as possible. Questions are encouraged throughout, particularly at the daily wrap-up sessions. This provides opportunities for participants to discuss specific issues and, if possible, find appropriate solutions. General discussions are employed to highlight particular points and to illustrate particular conditions.

Organisational Impact

This GLOMACS training course will allow delegates to interact and gain shared experiences of others along with:

  • An understanding for the need for routine inspection and maintenance
  • Fault finding techniques on  pieces of electrical power equipment
  • The observation of safe working practices
  • Fault finding techniques discussed and investigated

Personal Impact

On successful completion of this GLOMACS training course, delegates will be able to understand:

  • The need for routine inspection, adequate maintenance of equipment and accurate record keeping
  • Safe methods of maintenance management
  • The effective maintenance activities for best utilisation of time and resources
  • Electrical equipment components and  maintenance requirements
  • Cable installation and fault finding techniques
