The overall focus of this manual is on electrical inspection, testing and commissioning and commences with a detailed examination of switchgear (and circuit breakers). Protection relays; commissioning and periodic inspection of cables , their various failure modes and how to detect these faults; and the often neglected topic of switchboards is also detailed.
This manual will provide you with practical knowledge (including tips, tricks and tools) covering the fundamentals of power transformers and their testing. It will greatly assist you in communicating more effectively with your electrical engineering colleagues.
This manual looks at difficult-to-diagnose problems in a facility from a fresh yet practical perspective and enables you to reduce expensive down time on your plant and equipment to a minimum by correct application of lightning, surge protection and earthing principles.
In this manual, examples are taken from various industrial standard practices for reliable and trouble-free operation of diesel power plants. Some of the essential systems such as fuel oil layouts, lube oil requirements and control circuitry are also discussed.
This manual is designed to ensure that those responsible for the selection, laying, operation, maintenance and monitoring of power cables understand the technical issues involved and comply with relevant specification and requirements.
This manual discusses power distribution, focusing on medium voltage (1kV- 36kV) power considerations, switchgear, power cables, transformers, power factor correction, earthing, lightning protection and network studies.
The manual is designed to provide excellent understanding on both a theoretical and practical level. Starting at a basic level and then moving onto more detailed applications, it features an introduction covering the need for protection, fault types and their effects, simple calculations of short circuit currents and system earthing.
