INTRODUCTION

This highly participative EuroMaTech training course is designed to provide you with the skills to understand how circuit breakers are selected for specific applications, and how they are designed, installed and safely operated in industrial process plants, particularly in the oil and gas, mining and minerals processing and heavy industries.

The LV, MV and HV Circuit Breakers training course is interactive and encourages delegates to participate through questions and answers, along with opportunities to discuss with the presenter specific issues which may result in appropriate solutions.

Participants will develop following competencies by understanding:

  • Practical Circuit Breaker Design and Operation to Ensure Safe and Reliable Application
  • The Differences between Circuit Breakers and Other Circuit Control and Isolation Devices
  • The Different Types of Circuit Breakers used for LV, MV and HV Applications
  • The Importance of Selecting Circuit Breakers for the Fault Level of the Application
  • Circuit Breaker Control and Protection
  • Typical Circuit Breaker Configurations in Switchrooms and Switchyards
  • Typical Switchroom, Substation and Switchyard layouts
  • The Installation, Commissioning and Testing of Circuit Breakers
  • The Operation and Maintenance of Circuit Breakers
  • The Cause and Consequences of Circuit Breaker Faults
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

If you work in the Utilities, Oil and Gas, Minerals Processing, Mining and Heavy Industries, this LV, MV and HV Circuit Breakers training course will provide you with a detailed understanding of the critical role that the correct selection and installation play in the operation and maintenance of LV, MV and HV Circuit Breakers. It is specifically tailored to suit:

  • Senior/Lead/Principal Electrical Engineers

  • Electrical, Operations and Plant Maintenance Managers and Support Engineers
  • Electrical Maintenance Supervisors and Lead Technicians.
  • Experienced Maintenance and Electrical Technicians
PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

LV, MV and HV Circuit Breakers training course aims to enable participants to achieve the following objectives:

  • Understand the application and importance of Circuit Breakers
  • Learn how different types and voltages of Circuit Breakers work
  • Understand the fundamental safety requirements for personnel and equipment
  • Learn about different types of electrical distribution systems and how they are configured
  • Learn how circuit breakers and their associated switchboards are installed
  • Understand the basic requirements for safe and reliable operation
  • Understand the criticality of utilising the correct protection and control to ensure that faulty plant and equipment is safely isolated
  • The importance of the maintenance of Circuit Breakers and associated equipment
TRAINING METHODOLOGY

This EuroMaTech training course will combine presentations with interactive practical exercises, supported by video materials, activities and case studies. Delegates will be encouraged to participate actively in relating their particular protection requirements at their workplace.

There will be adequate time given for group discussion during and at the end of each session, including detailed case studies and anecdotes on based on the subject matter and the facilitator’s own experience in the field.

PROGRAMME SUMMARY

LV, MV and HV Circuit Breakers training course covers many details that relate to Circuit Breakers and Switchboard/Switchyard Design and Installation, from basic principles to the complex application of this equipment in large plants and facilities, including their Operation, Maintenance and Fault Finding.

It is designed to be beneficial for professionals with an electrical background who require a detailed understanding of Circuit Breakers and Switchgear for their work or project execution.
