Power Distribution Equipment which are reliable, safe and efficient are essential for an electrical installation. This online training course includes the construction, operation and maintenance aspects of the equipment namely the transformers, circuit breakers, ring main unit, switches and protection devices. Safe operations are essential as they are protected by modern and sophisticated relays and protection devices. Power distribution can either be overhead or underground, and auxiliary power is obtain by means of uninterruptible power supply.

Protection systems are installed to prevent faults from damaging electrical plant and to initiate isolation of faulted sections in order to maintain continuity of supply elsewhere on the system. Recent changes in technology together with changes in the manner in which utilities and industrial organisations operate, has greatly emphasized the development of integrated protection and control.


By the end of this online training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the major power distribution equipment
  • Determine the various types maintenance strategies
  • Explain the different types of circuit breakers
  • Analyse the characteristics of oil immersed transformers
  • Design a simple electrical power distribution incorporating the main power distribution equipment
