Training Course Overview
Electricity today is part of our livelihood, to ensure the safe and secure operations of the electrical equipment, instruments and machines. Electric shock hazards are minimized by the effective grounding or earthing system. The alternating current (AC) system is a complex entity whereby it has distinctive characteristics. Power factor, apparent power, active power and reactive power are components of the AC system.
Circuit breakers are protection devices installed at all levels of electrical circuits. The precise operation of these devices are of great importance so as to avoid catastrophic arc flashes or flash overs.
