This training seminar has been developed for the participants to learn new skills associated with Generator systems and refresh their previous skills and training, to further advancement of knowledge.
The successful operation of any Generating Systems ultimately depends on how well the inspection, testing, maintenance and troubleshooting functions are carried out. Well-developed procedures and planning will in the long run result in reduced costs, equipment downtime, parts requirements, and troubleshooting complexity.
What Do Participants Learn?
Elaborate on different types of power systems
Discuss different types of technical information
Examine different types of test equipment used with power systems
Explore different types of switchgear associated with Generator systems
Identify Excitation techniques for Generators
Describe troubleshooting techniques used with Generator and Excitation systems
