Advanced Electrical Maintenance and Troubleshooting

The untrained/unexperienced technician unnecessarily replaces costly parts, must wait for technical support from engineering, the supervisory staff, or the equipment manufactures’ support organization. This wastes valuable time and money. In some cases, the equipment gets damaged because parts are installed incorrectly, or the workmanship is substandard.

Electrical Maintenance of various electrical equipment and apparatus requires good understanding of phase and ground short circuit currents, detection, and safe clearing of the faulted equipment. Good design & coordination of electric power protection systems is vital to safety, maintenance, troubleshooting and efficient operation of electrical systems and modern industrial plants.

Salvo Global’s course is designed to familiarize participants with the use of practical & effective troubleshooting procedures to troubleshoot problems in electrical circuits. After completing this course, participants should be able to identify and describe the main steps of a practical maintenance & troubleshooting procedure and use the procedure to troubleshoot problems in electrical equipment and electrical systems.

Top Learning Objectives

  • Enhance knowledge of modern preventive & predictive electrical maintenance techniques to effectively optimise performance and extend life-cycle of equipment & electrical systems
  • Learn how to plan and implement energized maintenance tasks such as infrared scanning, ultrasound, vibration analysis for effective condition monitoring and early fault detection
  • Ensure high safety awareness in all maintenance practices and develop a strong safety culture with reliable emergency protocol
  • Troubleshoot, optimise and protect ALL essential equipment and electrical systems such as generators, motors, control circuits, transformer, PLCs etc.
  • Improve important management skills to motivate artisans and technicians to carry out work orders precisely and productively
  • Acquire practical insights and application techniques to safely handle high voltage electrical systems and components
  • Gain valuable advice through interactive discussion on renewable/alternative energy sources and hybrid power solutions
