Code : E005
Request In-house Training Proposal
Why Attend This Training Course?
A generator set is a key piece of the power system, and proper operation and maintenance are essential to long-term system reliability that ensures availability and uptime. While power systems vary in operation, application and load profile depending on the purpose and complexity, all power systems are designed with common goals: providing reliable power and maximizing system efficiency. To achieve these design goals, it is important to understand system operation, load profile and schemes and required maintenance. This course covers the best practices for paralleling generators, touching on dependability, cost savings, efficiency, synchronization, and other aspects, emergency requirements for standby and backup power loads.

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.
