It is recommended that the participants hold at least a Bachelor of Engineering degree or have a certain foreknowledge of power cables. The Power cables in general course is a recommended preparation, but not a requirement.
What degradation mechanisms or ageing mechanisms affect cables and its accessories? What is the rate of progression of these degradation processes? Do they all result in failure? What methods are available for diagnosing these degradation mechanisms? Are these analysis and testing techniques only available in a laboratory or also in the field? Which ones are potentially destructive and which ones are absolutely safe? And how effective are these techniques? Can these techniques only be applied offline or can they also be applied online? And what is the relationship of all this to safeguarding quality and reliability? Plenty of questions, but not every supplier of analysis and testing techniques will give you independent advice. That’s precisely what we do in this course.
This in-depth practical two-day training course is part of a series of courses on power cables, consisting of a general three-day course, Power cables in general and several in-depth two-day courses, providing more detailed information on the following topics:
- Ampacity and engineering aspects of power cables
- Ageing, quality assurance, testing, diagnostics and failures of power cables
- Asset management, maintenance and remaining life of MV cables
- Asset management, maintenance and remaining life of HV and EHV cables
For more information and registration, please refer to the brochure and the registration form.
On request, Energy Academy can also provide an in-house training course in English or Dutch (content, location and duration of the course can be adapted to the client’s wishes). Please contact us for more information.
