Why Attend This Training Course?
Energy Saving & Power Factor Improvement play an important role in the generation, transmission and distribution of electrical power. Therefore, they need to be operated in a safe manner in order to secure continuity of supply to consumers. This training course teaches how important it is to establish a preventative maintenance program to significantly reduce both planned and unplanned downtime. The course will review equipment necessary to perform a site survey, such as industry oscilloscopes and multimeters, power quality analyzers, current clamp meters, and mini infrared thermometers. It also provides invaluable information to anyone who wishes to know and understand the role of maintenance  and troubleshooting of electric power systems. The importance of planning and preparation for electrical testing projects, from engineering to testing, troubleshooting and commissioning and eventual start up, safety considerations and testing and troubleshooting for all the components of any electrical power system will be emphasized.

What Is The Training Course Methodology?
This training methodology illustrates the concepts involved in the above areas through practical consideration of actual real-life problems, as well as explanation of concepts by experts in area using video projectors and computer aided case studies based on practical applications. Participants will solve their system problem, where the trainee’s try to apply the skills learnt with guidance from our specialized experts. ACAD will provide participants a comprehensive assessment on the problems solved using the skills acquired in the training course.
