Installation of high voltage distribution and transmission equipment has increased significantly over the years due to ongoing global demand for power. As a result, the need to ensure the reliability of operation of power systems is paramount. Power transformers and switchgears are among the most important and most expensive components of power systems; their failure can impose extraordinarily high costs on plants, factories and utilities of all descriptions. It is critical that all personnel operating and working with such equipment have a sound knowledge of their operational requirements and maintenance. This course introduces the new technologies of electrical equipment maintenance and monitoring. On the other hand detailed knowledge on both the theory and operation of Transformers, Switchgear components are introduced. The course will develop and enhance an understanding of what is involved in the maintenance of these essential components of the power systems, through the tips and tricks learnt and developed by some of the World’s pre-eminent electrical engineers.
