Medium Voltage Cable Splicing and Termination (with Hands-On)

Click Here to REGISTER

COURSE DESCRIPTION: The course aims to enhance your knowledge about proper installation of high voltage cable splices and terminations. Installing and testing cables correctly can ensure an increased life and value for your cables and is therefore important in increasing the longevity of your investment. Any technicians, electrical engineers, and electricians that does installation and maintenance as well as trouble shooting of power cables will benefit from this course.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) based in New York shares that inadequate testing and installation prior to initiating cable splices and termination are the main reasons for failures. However, despite its importance, cable splicing and testing professionals have dwindled in numbers over the past years. With a steady demand for trained professionals, knowledge in this area is definitely an advantage for any electrical professional.

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
 
Infrared Thermography is one of the most valuable tools available for inspecting electrical systems. Too often, however, the use of the technology falls short of its potential full value. Why? A primary reason is our failure to understand the basic heat transfer science involved and, thus, misinterpret the thermal signature of a component possibly headed toward heat-related failure.
This course will present case studies that present real problems that the thermographer will experience in the field. This course objective is to give a proper training to engineers engage in this field, giving them a good understanding of radiation laws and parameters to take into consideration when carrying thermographic inspections and measurement. Participants learn to avoid costly mistakes.
 
TARGET AUDIENCE:
 
    1. New Thermographer Surveyors.
    2. Those intending to buy or use Infrared Thermography.
    3. Service Providers providing Infrared Thermography services; and

Variable Frequency Drive with hands-on

Course Description:

VFDs are used in applications ranging from small appliances to the largest of mine mill drives and compressors. However, around 25% of the world’s electrical energy is consumed by electric motors in industrial applications, which are especially conducive for energy savings using VFDs in centrifugal load service,[5] and VFDs’ global market penetration for all applications is still relatively small. That lack of penetration highlights significant energy efficiency improvement opportunities for retrofitted and new VFD installations (Source: Wikipedia)

Our approach is a fusion of practical discussions and application. It teaches professionals how they can increase efficiency and improve VFD control. It provides a deeper appreciation of AC motors on workplace issues. The course focuses on building a strong fundamental understanding of VFD, compressed in a period of 8 hours, ensuring less time investment for a hefty amount of returns.

Training objective:

At the end of the training, the participants will be able to:

  • Know how does VFD operate, program, wiring, and save energy
  • Know some applications of VFD on the Industries
