About the Course

The 5-day Modern Maintenance of Electrical Distribution Systems is a comprehensive training course focusing on the latest methods and strategies to maintain electric power distribution systems. It aims to give delegates the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively manage and maintain such systems, ensuring optimal performance and reliability.

This programme starts by providing an overview of electric power distribution systems, including their components, functions, and importance in delivering electricity to end-users. It then investigates the various maintenance techniques. Preventive maintenance involves regularly inspecting and servicing equipment to identify and address potential issues before they escalate into major problems. Another essential aspect of modern maintenance techniques is predictive maintenance, which utilises advanced technologies to monitor the condition of equipment in real-time. By analysing data patterns and trends, potential failures can be predicted, allowing for timely intervention and proactive maintenance.

Furthermore, it explores the concept of condition-based maintenance, which involves monitoring specific parameters or indicators that reflect the health and performance of equipment. It covers using advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to troubleshoot electrical faults and failures. By accurately identifying the root cause of a problem, the delegates can implement targeted repairs or replacements, minimising downtime and optimising system performance. It emphasises the importance of safety in maintenance activities, providing guidelines on safe work practices, personal protective equipment (PPE), and compliance with relevant regulations and standards.

Core Objectives

The training course provides the delegates with the modern maintenance tools to effectively manage and maintain the electrical distribution systems, ensuring their optimal performance and reliability.

The delegates will achieve the following objectives:

  • Understand the major electrical distribution system components
  • Estimate the reliability and performance parameters of the electrical distribution system
  • Recognise the significance of maintenance to ensure safe operations
  • Run through and evaluate the various types of maintenance strategies, which are predictive, preventive, and corrective techniques
  • Define and practice principles of the electrical protection systems
  • Obtain and analyse information on system diagrams/plans to ensure the installation, inspection, testing, and maintenance of electrical equipment under electricity supply industry standards
  • Practice and assess modern maintenance tools and technologies
Training Approach

This training course involves the systematic and proactive approach to ensuring the reliability, efficiency, and safety of the electrical distribution system that delivers power to consumers. This process includes inspection, testing, troubleshooting, repair, and replacement of equipment and components within the distribution system.
