Basic Electricity

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Modern Industrial plants contain a great deal of electrical equipment that needs to be maintained and repaired. To perform electrical maintenance tasks correctly and efficiently, electricians and electrical maintenance personnel must have (1) a basic understanding of the fundamentals of electrical theory; (2) a specific knowledge of the way electrical devices operate; and (3) practical hands-on experience.

Cable Terminations

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Electrical cables are routinely connected to many different types of equipment. When a connection to equipment is made, the cable must be terminated, or ended, at the connection point. This course discusses pothead, single phase elbow, three-phase elbow and switchgear terminations, how they are installed, and how they help cables function properly. Problems associated with voltage stress are also discussed. This course also explains how to energize three-phase terminations in switchgear and transformers.

Cable Splicing 1

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Cable splicing is the process of joining two cable ends together while maintaining the cable’s original design characteristics. This course focuses on cable design, voltage stress and preparation of cables for splicing using a splice kit.

Pad-Mounted Transformers and Switchgear

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course discusses the basics of underground transformer operations. It presents problems that arise when operating transformers and discusses troubleshooting techniques and inspection procedures. This course also describes the general characteristics of two basic types of pad-mounted switchgear: oil-immersed disconnect switches and transclosures. This course also describes how pad-mounted switchgear can be used to sectionalize and reroute power in an underground feeder system.

Underground Cable Installation

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This program describes two methods of installing underground cable: direct-burying and pulling cable in conduit. The program demonstrates how to lay cable in an open trench and pull cable in conduit. This course also demonstrates how to use various types of equipment and tools for rigging manholes and for pulling cable in conduit.
