Philippines’s energy crisis has deteriorated in recent times, hitting a lot of businesses hard. While the government in The Philippines has attempted to cope with this by opening up the sector to allow private sector participation in electricity generation and working on different emergency power arrangements to shore up the supply situation, industrial users who are operating plants and facilities are often left to deal with the continual erratic electricity supply by maintaining their own generating capacity, in addition to daily industry maintenance need for their electrical equipment and systems. This has made it critical for electrical engineers in these organisations to possess the necessary skills in order to ensure that the Power Systems and Maintenance Processes in the organisations are safe, reliable and operating in an efficient manner.
Today’s Power Systems, in response to changing business needs and technological innovation, have added functionalities that aid in strategic advancement. Good design & coordination of power protection systems is vital to safety and efficient operation of electrical systems and modern industrial plants; whereas an effective maintenance regime extends assets life-cycle, reduce wastage/cost and prevent injuries.
