25 - 29 Sep 2022 Dubai - UAE $4,950 Register Now

This Cable Joints, Terminations and Accessories training course is designed to provide a valuable learning experience for the apprentice and a comprehensive refresher for the skilled employee. This training course provides students with information on how and why cable design and testing are necessary. Cable construction, principles of testing and evaluation of test results are covered in detail. Critical information on cable testing and fault location of medium-voltage cables are covered.

Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standards are reviewed and discussed as well. Equipment covered includes Capacitive Discharge Equipment (Thumper), TDR (Time Domain Reflectometer), Hypot, Insulation Resistance Test set, Acoustic/ Magnetic Pulse Detection and Cable Route Tracing Equipment. There is also a strong emphasis on safety as well as application. Students put to practical use the information that they have learned by performing testing on medium-voltage cables and locating faults with state-of-the-art equipment.

Objectives

The training course aims to help participants to develop the following critical objectives for power system:

  • A better understanding design of LV power cables
  • A better understanding of cable components
  • An improved capability in understanding control cable design 
  • A better understanding of failure modes and failure analysis for power cables 
  • A refreshed awareness of electrical safety concerns related to cable repair, testing and re-installations
  • A better understanding of electrical design Engineering
  • A better understanding of probe testing for high cable performance

Methodology

This ETC training course will combine presentations with instructor-guided interactive discussions between participants relating to their individual interests. Practical exercises, video material and case studies aiming at stimulating these discussions and providing maximum benefit to the participants will support the formal presentation sessions. Above all, the course leader will make extensive use of case examples and case studies of issues in which he has been personally involved.
