Who Should Attend:
Line and other operations personnel, such as metering, service, engineering, and other individuals who require understanding of AC theory and how it relates to equipment that is used to troubleshoot problems.
The course will cover troubleshooting problems and what to look for in single-phase problems; how to fix three-phase problems from wrong voltages and how they occur, and how to give alternative solutions to solve the problems; and equipment that is used to solve problems and how it works electrically. You will review series and parallel circuits, fault currents, and troubleshooting flow charts. You will gain an understanding of single-phase and three-phase problems of all kinds; what causes ferro-resonance; emergency alternatives to field situations; the equipment and troubleshooting; and safety hazards that are of concern in shooting three-phase transformer banks and three-phase capacitor banks.
Important: Please bring your safety glasses and gloves to the class.
