About the course

Facility Electrical Engineering for Supervisors is a course that introduces electrical engineering principles as applied to oil and gas facilities operation without the need for formal electrical engineering training. Through the use of individual and team problem solving you will learn about electrical components, issues, installation and the interfaces between facility engineers, contractors and maintenance personnel. Participants will gain a better understanding of what the Electrical discipline does and what is important to them.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Gain in depth knowledge on facilities electric power distribution, which include circuit arrangements, low and medium voltage switchgear, and single-phase and three phase schemes
  • Understand the operation, components, electromotive forces, turns and voltage ratios, losses, efficiency, rating, and connections of transformers
  • Understand the difference between direct current, induction and synchronous current motors, motor enclosures, and how to select motors
  • Learn the principles of protecting electrical equipment, including time current curves, fuses, circuit breakers, and coordination
  • Learn and understand what standby power is, including generators and UPS power systems
  • Have knowledge about power factor and correction
  • Differentiate what grounding and bonding systems are, with an overview of ignition sources, separately derived systems, and substation grounding
