Commissioning, Testing & Start-Up of Electrical Substation Virtual

Course Overview:

The start-up of any electrical system for the first time, regardless of its size, type or industry, is a very special occurrence and poses some outstanding problems. A lack of experience in dealing with such problems and the consequent lack of proper planning has frequently resulted in prolonged delays in the start-up and the consequent costly productivity losses.  This course provides guidelines to anyone who wishes to know and understand the role of commissioning in a project, whatever its size.

The importance of planning and preparation for the project, from engineering to commissioning and start up, will be emphasized. This course deals with safety considerations and testing and start-up procedures for all the components of any electrical system.  Insurance and legal aspects of commissioning and startup are dealt with in detail and the course provides useful guidelines on what to do when things go wrong during this phase of a project.

Course objective:

By the end of this training participants will be able to:

  • Learn to plan, control and implement commissioning and start-up of electrical systems
  • Familiarize yourself with the performance specifications, which can be economically verified
  • Gain insight into the field tests for electrical distribution systems, generator and motors, transformers, switchgear and cables
  • Increase your skills in start-up of electrical systems
  • Become knowledgeable about handover, acceptance and transition to operations
  • Understand who is responsible for what and what to do when disaster strikes

Who Should Attend?

Design engineers, electrical engineers, commissioning and testing engineers, consulting engineers, electrical technologists, project managers, project engineers, plant managers, operating and maintenance personnel and all individuals involved in project execution.
