Introduction to High-Voltage Systems: Understanding the basics of high-voltage systems, including definitions, safety considerations, and the importance of proper operation and maintenance.
Electrical Safety: Learning about electrical hazards and the importance of adhering to safety regulations and procedures when working with high-voltage systems. This includes the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), safe work practices, and emergency response protocols.
High-Voltage Equipment: Studying the different types of high-voltage equipment commonly found in industrial and utility settings, such as transformers, switchgear, circuit breakers, relays, and protective devices. Participants will learn about their functions, operation principles, and safety precautions.
Switching Operations: Understanding the procedures for safe switching operations in high-voltage systems, including isolation, tagging, and testing. This includes learning about the necessary permits, control procedures, and coordination with other personnel.
Protective Devices and Safety Systems: Familiarizing with the operation and maintenance of protective devices and safety systems used in high-voltage systems, such as protective relays, arc flash mitigation, and grounding systems.
Emergency Response: Developing skills in emergency response procedures specific to high-voltage systems. This includes understanding emergency shutdown procedures, incident management, and communication protocols during electrical emergencies.
Maintenance and Testing: Learning about the maintenance requirements for high-voltage equipment, including inspection, cleaning, lubrication, and periodic testing. Participants will also gain an understanding of diagnostic and testing techniques to ensure equipment integrity and reliability.
Compliance and Regulations: Understanding the relevant regulations, standards, and codes that govern high-voltage systems, and ensuring compliance with them. This includes documentation, record-keeping, and permit-to-work procedures.
Practical Exercises and Simulations: Engaging in practical exercises and simulations to apply the knowledge gained during the training. Participants may work on simulated scenarios, perform switching operations, and practice emergency response procedures.
Assessment and Certification: Evaluating the participants’ understanding and competence through assessments or examinations. Successful completion of the training program may result in the issuance of a certification or authorization to work as an HV Authorized Person.
