High Voltage Safety & Switching IADC

This 4-day course is designed to instruct electrical personnel in the safe working techniques for offshore and onshore industrial high voltage applications. It contains IEC and NEC standards for HV switching, electrical isolations and flash protection boundaries per the NFPA 70E 2012. Our new power generation and distribution simulator instructs technicians in the start-up and troubleshooting of offshore power systems and includes the following topics:

  • NFPA-70E Electrical Safety Standards
  • Arc Flash Protection Boundaries and appropriate PPE
  • Recommended practices for isolations, switching and grounding
  • HV terminology, system component identification and functions
  • Core electrical principles and concepts
  • Alternators and voltage regulation
  • Power system distribution and dynamics (PF, KVAR, KW, KWA)
  • Synchronization, load sharing (droop), and Isochronous Generator Operations
  • Distribution component-switchgear and transformers
  • High Voltage cabling and electrical stress relief
  • Hi-Pot and IRT testing
