Electric Power Substation Engineering

Course Description

There is considerable interest among people who operate and maintain electrical power systems in a Wide range of topics relating to equipment maintenance and testing. This is because condition and reliability are directly related to maintenance and testing

To obtain maximum life from electrical equipment, maintain its reliability, and minimize repair cost, it is necessary to serve and test it periodically to predict condition.

Proper installation and preventive maintenance of substation will assure continued electrical power supply, it is very important to the consumers specially, for industrial sector where the curtail of electrical power supply is costly.

Course Objectives

To perform proper maintenance on substations Equipment, including transformers, circuit breakers, bus bars, metering, protective devices, batteries…etc.

The attendance will become familiar with substation standards.
