Why Choose this Training Course?

This Electrical Faults training course in Dubai teaches practical electrical troubleshooting and is concerned with the calculation of fault currents in electrical power systems. Short-circuit currents are associated with large amounts of very destructive energy and therefore calculations must be made to ensure that the short-circuit ratings of equipment are adequate to cater for these high currents. Accurate assessment of these currents is also essential for determining the settings of the system protection devices.

This training course includes the preparation of the system for analysis, by manual calculation and by the use of computer analysis. Participants will be introduced to the various fault analysis software programs.

This AZTech training course will feature:

  • Identification of causes of electrical faults
  • Understanding three phase short circuit currents
  • Recognition of unsymmetrical faults in transformers
  • Representation of unsymmetrical faults in a power system
  • Manual and software assisted of fault currents

 

What are the Goals?

By the end of this AZTech training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the various types of fault currents
  • Determine the causes of overcurrent and short circuit current
  • Explain differences between symmetrical and unsymmetrical faults
  • Analyse the common faults in a power system
  • Interpret manual calculation verses software aided fault current calculations

 

Who is this Training Course for?

This  AZTech training course will benefit all levels of personnel in an electrical installation. It will enable them to identify the causes and apply analysis of electrical faults in a power system.

This AZTech training course is suitable to a wide range of technical professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Electricians
  • Electrical supervisors
  • Plant electricians
  • Operations & maintenance engineers, supervisors & technicians
  • Maintenance technicians

 

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This AZTech  training course will utilise a variety of proven adult training techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes presentation and discussion of case studies (with appropriate solutions), latest videos, technologies, and various commercial fault current analysis software.

Questions are encouraged throughout, particularly at the daily wrap up sessions. This provides opportunities for participants to discuss with the Presenter specific issues and, if possible, find appropriate solutions. Specific goals of each participant will be discussed to ensure that their needs are fulfilled whenever practicable.
