Medium and High Voltage Electrical Maintenance and Testing of electric power systems is essential to the safe operation of any electrical system, regardless of its size, type or industry. Electrical worker inexperience and poor electrical maintenance planning will inevitably result in costly equipment failure, downtime and productivity losses, not to speak of the risk of electrical safety accidents, injury and death.
The importance of planning, programming and implementing electrical maintenance practices will be emphasized. This course also deals with safety considerations involved in electrical maintenance procedures for all the components of any electrical system. This will be an interactive forum where the instructor will lead the discussion between students so to maximze the educational experience.
STANDARDS GOVERNING ELECTRICAL MAINTENANCE
This course on electrical maintenance standards, procedures and solutions to electrical maintenance and testing problems will deal with specific issues relating to electrical testing and troubleshooting procedures and equipment selection, and is based on the following standards:
This presentation is designed to alert Canadian electrical maintenance personnel in utility, industrial, commercial and institutional facilities to the latest International Electrical Testing Association (NETA) Maintenance and Testing Specifications. These NETA maintenance specifications cover the suggested field tests and inspections that are available to assess the suitability for continued service and reliability of electrical power distribution equipment and systems.
The purpose of these specifications is to assure that tested electrical equipment and systems are operational and within applicable standards and manufacturer's tolerances and that the equipment and systems are suitable for continued service. This program will also deal with the important subject of troubleshooting electrical systems and choosing the proper preventive maintenance testing equipment and procedures.
This course is a must for electrical engineers, electrical maintenance personnel, plant electricians, electrical contractors, power specialists, maintenance managers, consultants and technologists responsible for the design, construction, installation, inspection, operation, or maintenance of electrical systems, electrical technicians, inspectors, safety personnel and other employees responsible for the operation and maintenance of electrical systems in a commercial, industrial, institutional or utility setting.
