Course Syllabus

Course Description

The successful operation of any Generating Systems ultimately depends on how well the inspection, testing, maintenance and troubleshooting functions are carried out. Well-developed procedures and planning will in the long run result in reduced costs, equipment down time, parts requirements and troubleshooting complexity. Delegates are encouraged to participate by active involvement in group discussions, practical exercises and sharing experiences.

Course Objectives

Following the attendance at this course, participants will return to their respective departments equipped with new or refreshed skills to ensure that electrical generating equipment and it’s control systems are inspected, tested, maintained and when necessary repaired using well planned troubleshooting procedures in a fashion that ensures reduced costs and/or down time plus identified faults or problems are repaired and the underlying causes are identified and eliminated to reduce further failures. On successful completion of this course, participants will have:

  • A better understanding of generator principles
  • A better understanding of troubleshooting procedures as applied to generating equipment
  • An improved capability in the use of test equipment
  • A better understanding of failure modes and failure analysis
  • A refreshed awareness of electrical safety concerns
