Electrical Equipment Maintenance Strategies

A Smart Asset Management Approach.


    In-House sessions are available upon request.


    Course Overview:

    Safe operational practices, asset preservation, reliability and continuity of service while minimizing the carbon footprint and environmental impact of utility, industrial, and commercial enterprise operations are among the highest priorities of owners, managers and operators throughout the world.

    Many industries are concerned with maximizing efficiency, reliability, and longevity of electrical equipments. This workshop addresses the above objectives by introducing the participants to the latest technological innovations embodied in smart grid capabilities as aids to allow successful smart asset management throughout the system. The discussion covers the basics of how equipment deteriorate, their failure modes, successful maintenance practices throughout the life cycle of electrical assets of typical industries. Commissioning, start-up, routine testing, condition monitoring, and decommissioning are all stages of smart asset management. The impact of smart grid implementation will be emphasized through working case studies. Transformers, cables, switchgear, are among the equipments treated.



    What You Will Learn:

    • LEARN the role of smart grid in enhanced asset management
    • APPRECIATE how equipment deteriorate and fail during their life cycle
    • SELECT the most appropriate testing maintenance regime for your equipment
    • USE diagnostic testing
    • INSPECT equipment with an awareness of common failure modes
    • INCREASE availability of your equipment by appropriate commissioning
    • MAXIMISE efficiency, reliability, and longevity
    • TROUBLESHOOT non-performing equipment
    • IMPLEMENT safe testing and inspection program


    Who Should Attend:

    Electrical, mechanical and process engineers, consulting engineers, electrical, mechanical, and process technical support staff, technologists, project engineers, power plant managers, maintenance and operations engineers, marine inspectors, computer technologists, procurement managers, technical sales managers, senior electricians.

    In addition, this program is vital for asset managers and decision makers
