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.
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.
