Electrical Power, Control Systems & Power Plant Operators

Electrical Networks - Operation And Maintenance

  REF: EE194  DATES: 14 - 18 Oct 2019  (One Week)  VENUE: Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur)-Grand Millenium Hotel


Distribution equipment plays an important role in the safe distribution of electrical power. The equipment needs to be operated in a safe manner securing continuity of supply to consumers.
This requires the equipment to be:

  • Well designed, installed, commissioned
  • Operated, and maintained in a satisfactory manner
  • Within a management system
  • Effective in meeting the reliability goals and
  • Aware of the need of maintenance balanced against equipment downtime and cost

The course focuses mainly on the operation and maintenance of distribution equipment, with reference to auxiliary equipment necessary for its operation.


Delegates will gain a detailed appreciation of the following:

  • The need and management for maintenance
  • Management and implementation of safe systems of work
  • Co-ordination of maintenance activities and maintaining system safety
  • Switchgear maintenance - transformer maintenance
  • Cable installation and rating; condition monitoring using non intrusive technology
  • Routine inspections, properties of insulating oils

Training Methodology
The goals of each participant are discussed to ensure their needs are fulfilled, as far as possible. Questions are encouraged throughout, particularly at the daily wrap up sessions. This provides opportunities for participants to discuss specific issues and, if possible, find appropriate solutions. Case studies are employed to highlight particular points and appropriate video material used to illustrate particular conditions.

Organisational Impact
The course will allow delegates to interact and gain shared experiences of others along with:

  • An understanding for the need for routine inspection
  • Using selected videos and case studies to illustrate the material being discussed
  • An emphasis to ensure material is appropriate to the organisations being represented
  • An awareness and understanding of the course objectives
  • Safe working practices being stressed and
  • Risk reduction methods investigated

Personal Impact
On successful completion of this course delegate will be able to understand:

  • The need for routine inspection, adequate maintenance of equipment and accurate record keeping
  • Methods of maintenance management, using safe systems of work
  • How to co-ordinate maintenance activities for best utilization of time and resources, while ensuring safety is not compromised
  • Switchgear maintenance requirements and techniques - properties of insulating oils and their analysis
  • Transformer maintenance requirements and techniques - cable installation and fault finding techniques
  • The use of non intrusive condition monitoring methods

Who Should attend:

  • Electrical Professionals
  • Electrical Engineers
  • Technicians
  • Professionals responsible for the operation and maintenance of distribution equipment, who will benefit from sharing experiences in the planning, organisation, and implementation of maintenance activities.
