Foundation Course in High Voltage Installations

Engineering context

Modern electrical substations are made up of highly complex devices covering a range of technologies that require a diversity of engineering disciplines for their design, integration and implementation. The best substation designers have a good understanding and working knowledge of all of these disciplines and technologies.

This two-day course covers the major and most salient aspects of delivering high-voltage substations, including design, procurement, construction and commissioning. The course will help participants develop economic, sustainable and safe installations.

You’ll learn how to choose the most appropriate plant configuration for a substation; select an initial layout which is both practical and economic; develop detailed estimates of the cost of constructing a substation; plan and carry out substation construction, testing and commissioning.
