Course Description

Industrial and commercial facilities are more dependent on reliable power systems than ever before. The goal of protection devices is to allow for normal equipment operation as well as to protect the main parts of the electrical systems from damage. This course is designed to help the participants to understand how electricity works, and how to work with it safely, it is designed to present fundamental information about protection devices, and how they function.

Course Objectives

  • Understanding how electricity works
  • Being familiar with terminology like "volts", "current", "amps", and the like
  • Knowing the importance of fuses and circuit breakers, and how they function
  • Understanding the concepts of "insulation" and "grounding"
  • Working safely with and around electrical equipment
  • Knowing what to do in electrical emergencies

Who Should Attend?

  • Electrical engineers
  • Supervisors
  • Technicians
  • Those who are responsible of the protection of industrial power systems.
