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.

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

  • A better understanding design of LV power cables
