Analyzing Cable & Switchgear Health: Classification, Defects, Assessment Strategies and Health Index
Enhance your expertise in Cable and Switchgear Health through our comprehensive training. Discover key insights into Classification, Defects, and Assessment strategies. Join us for in-person sessions and unlock the potential of your assets.
Cable Systems and Defects
These 3 days Masterclass start with by unraveling the complexity of cable systems, delving into their Components, Electrical Field Distribution, Voltage Line Distribution, Terminations/Joint Voltage Grading Systems, Design Characteristics, and Classification. The exploration extends to investigating potential Cable Defects, spanning Manufacturing, Installation, Environmental, and Operational factors, followed by navigating the sphere of Cable Maintenance Tests, comprehensively covering both External Insulation Tests with general procedures and data interpretation, as well as Main Insulation Tests.
In-Depth Diagnostics and Switchgear Insights
On Day 2, participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of Diagnostic Tests, focusing on their Classification and specifically on External Insulation Diagnostic Testing. Through hands-on Practical Sessions, participants will perform External Insulation Tests on medium voltage cables to strengthen their skills. The assessment continues with Internal Insulation Diagnostic Testing, where unique aspects like defect types, theoretical explanations, steps, and result evaluation will be carefully studied. Participants will also enhance their practical expertise by conducting Internal Insulation Tests on medium voltage cables. This will smoothly lead to the exploration of Switchgear Characteristics, including Components, Design, Classification, and potential Defects related to Manufacturing, Installation, Environment, and Operation. These will follow by online and offline partial discharge assessment for both air-insulated and gas-insulated switchgear and highlight the significance of partial discharge pre-localization in the assessment process.
Maintenance and Health Index Evaluation
On the final day, the instructor will delve into Switchgear Maintenance Tests, focusing on Main Insulation Tests. You'll learn procedures, data interpretation, and key Assessment Strategies. This comprehensive approach covers System Life Stage, Rated Voltage, and Insulation Material considerations. It includes Commissioning Tests, Online/Offline Tests, and meticulous planning.
Participant will get the chance to explore Health Index Evaluation, grasp its Definition, and witness practical Calculation/Application using tools like Power Bi or similar. Culminate with an immersive Online Assessment of network cable and switchgear, seamlessly uniting theory and application.
Throughout the Masterclass, practical tools and best practices will equip participants to competently manage the condition of both cables and switchgear. In-depth coverage of diagnostic tests will enable comprehensive result evaluation, complemented by insightful case studies that exemplify real-world assessments.
