The participants must have, at least, a Bachelor of Engineering degree.
Understanding how breakers operate as they perform their switching duties in medium and high-voltage networks. Application of power circuit breakers to meet power system requirements, not only in fault situations but also during normal operation. How the breaker deals with network transients and how it generates transients itself.
This three-day training course deals with switching and switching devices in medium and high-voltage power systems mainly from the electrical perspective. The participants will receive the full-color DNV GL book "High Voltage Circuit Breakers" (ed. 2011) and a CD or USB-stick including copies of all the training material (presentation slides) and reference documents. A visit to the KEMA High-Power Laboratory of DNV GL is also included.
For more information and registration, please refer to the brochure and the registration form.
If there is sufficient interest, an open enrolment course can be organised in Dubai as well. If you would like to express your interest, please send us an email.
On request, Energy Academy can also provide an in-house training course in the English or Dutch language (content, location and duration of the course can be adapted to the client's wishes). Please contact us for more information.
