High Voltage Safety and Switching (IADC)

This IADC High Voltage 4-day course is designed to educate electrical personnel in the safe working practices for offshore/onshore industrial high voltage applications. We provide IEC and NEC standards for High Voltage (HV) switching.  Our power generation and distribution simulator directs technicians in the start-up and troubleshooting of offshore High Voltage power systems.

Topics include:

  • NFPA-70E Electrical Safety Standards
  • Arc Flash Protection Boundaries and appropriate PPE
  • High Voltage terminology, system component identification and functions
  • Core electrical principles and concepts
  • Power system distribution and dynamics (PF, KVAR, KW, KWA)
  • Managing a High Voltage installation
  • Distribution component-switchgear and transformers
  • High Voltage cabling and electrical stress relief
  • Hi-Pot and IRT testing
  • Switching Plans

IADC High Voltage Safety & Switching uses both theoretical and practical assessments to validate a candidate’s core competency to work safely in High Voltage Hazardous Area.
