MV/HV Switchgear

Switchgear has an important role in the transmission and distribution of electrical power, as most customers are directly linked to the network. If there are any problems in the network, which cannot be managed properly, the customers may experience huge problems due to outages.

The courses in this area of expertise provide insight into basic operating principles, different interrupting technologies, application and categorisation of switchgear devices. It explains typical switchgear configurations and arrangements; typical problems encountered in the field and means of extending the life of MV switchgear. The courses also highlight safety considerations and provide practical guidance for operation, maintenance and testing of MV switchgear.


The following courses fall in this group:


SG101 SWITCHGEAR OPERATING PRINCIPLES

• Terminology, classification and application

• Basic operating principles

• Indoor/outdoor AIS, HIS and GIS and their applications

• Indoor MV switchgear

• Location and identification of switchgear components


SG102 SWITCHGEAR SAFETY & PROTECTIVE MEASURES

• Danger to the operators

• Types of operating areas

• Protective measures for personnel

• Safety measures for operating rooms

• Interlocking. Racking in and out of service


SG103 SWITCHGEAR LIFE EXTENSION & MAINTENANCE

• Life extension of MV switchgear equipment

• Visual switchgear inspection

• Switchgear and circuit breakers maintenance


Engineers that complete the courses in this group would obtain skills required to work on MV/HV switchgear maintenance and would position themselves to become MV/HV Switchgear Specialists, by completing additional courses on Switchgear Design (SD304) and Tender Specifications (SD301).

A detailed description of the courses and how they can support your development plan can be found in the program. For more information and for in-house training please contact us on training@matrex-e.com.
