INTRODUCTION

The purpose of the course is to enable participants who do not have an academic background in electrical engineering to understand the basic principles of the various electrical equipment that they may encounter in their working environment so that they can do a better job. The focus will be on medium voltage equipment between 1kV to 36kV.

SCOPE OF TRAINING
  • Day 1 Basic Electrical Technology & Transformers
  • Day 2 Generators, Medium Voltage Switchgear & Electrical Safety
TARGET AUDIENCE
  • Non-electrical engineers who have a special interest in electrical engineering.
  • Designers, chargemen and technicians who already have some experience in electrical engineering work.
  • Young electrical engineers who wish to enhance their practical knowledge of electrical engineering
 COURSE CONTENTS

Basic Electrical Technology

Conductors, insulators and semiconductors. Basic DC theory. Components. Voltage, current and resistance. Electrical measurements. Ohm’s Law. Power and energy. Series and parallel connections. Open- and short-circuits.

Basic AC theory. Comparison with DC. Reasons for using AC. Advantage of using higher voltages. Use of transformers. Apparent, real and reactive power. Power flow and factor. Single- and three-phase systems. Use of neutral in three-phase supplies. Star and delta connections.

Equipment non-electrical ratings. Heating, cooling and efficiency. Insulation resistance. Voltage drop and dip. Power system harmonics.

Power Transformers

Basic principles. Voltage, current and power transformers. Dry and oil-filled transformers. Conservator and sealed type of transformers. Cooling of transformers. Use of tap-changers. Off-circuit and on-load tap-changers. Windings and vector groups. Accessories.

AC Generators

Basic principles. The “twins” of generators – Mechanical & electrical components, the two inputs, the two outputs and the two controls. The four quadrants of operation of synchronous and induction generators and motors. Effect of changes of mechanical input and excitation on MW, Mvar, voltage and frequency in standalone and synchronised machines. The two triangles of exciter – voltage – Mvar and mechanical input – frequency – MW. Capability curve. 

Introduction to Medium Voltage Switchgear

Purpose. Types and functions of switchgear – circuit breaker, contactor, switch, earthing switch and disconnector. LV CB – ACB, MCCB and MCB. MV CB – oil, minimum oil, vacuum and SF6. Ring main unit. LV air and MV vacuum contactors. Characteristics of CBs – opening, arcing and breaking times. Features, advantages and disadvantages of gas-insulated switchgear. Understanding various ratings of medium voltage switchgear. Factory acceptance tests.

Dangers of Electrical Arc Flash & Blast

Differences between and consequences of arc flash and blast. Need for arc flash studies based on IEEE 1584. Understanding the terms working distance, incident energy and flash protection boundary. Understanding the use of the various categories of PPE in limiting injuries to first degree burns.

 DISCUSSIONS OF ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS
