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

  • Describe how to plan, control and implement commissioning of electrical systems
  • Understand the techniques and practices needed to ensure certain levels of quality and also to help business efficiency and overall profit
  • Discuss the performance specifications, which can be economically verified
  • Select the field tests for electrical distribution systems, generator and motors, transformers, switchgear, batteries, lightning arresters, and cables
  • Identify among corrective, preventive and preventive maintenance for your electric power distribution system
