Substation Design Training

Substation Design Training

Our 2-Day Substation Design Training Course will cover the maintenance and testing requirements for common substations.

Participants will cover the maintenance and testing requirements for common substation devices, including power transformers, oil, air and vacuum circuit breakers, switchgear, ground grid systems, batteries, chargers and insulating liquids. This course focuses on what to do, when to do it and how to interpret the results from testing and maintenance.
