This is an introductory course to understand the basic components of the electrical power system and their design, specifications, construction, testing, installation, commissioning and maintenance. It is aimed at building the necessary practical knowledge of the participant to understand the testing methodology to maintain the uninterrupted power supply and also to know the methodology for testing of equipment’s for commissioning and in case of fault to ensure proper restoration of the system.

Course Objectives

Upon the successful completion of this course, each participant will be able to:-

  • Build an understanding of importance of conservation of energy and performance assessment of electrical equipment’s and components
  • Understand electrical power system equipment’s and components
  • Learn specifications, construction, installation, testing and commissioning of electrical equipment’s as per standards and practices
  • Undertake testing of power, current, potential transformers and overhead transmission lines
  • Understand and maintain the protection systems
  • Have knowledge on isolators, circuit breakers, motors and generators testing and maintenance
  • Learn power cable specifications, laying and testing
  • Know the substation grounding system and its testing methods
  • Build the knowledge of diagnostic tests to assess the present condition of power system components
