HV/MV Switchgear, Inspections, Maintenance And Technology (Virtual)


Live Online / Virtual Option


This Workshop explains typical switchgear maintenance, configurations and arrangements, typical problems encountered in the field, and means of extending the life of HV/MV switchgear. The course also highlights training, safety considerations and provides practical guidance for operation, condition monitoring, maintenance, and testing of HV/MV switchgear.

Switchgear, like many other types of industrial equipment, is often unnoticed and neglected until it fails to function normally. The level to which switchgear is maintained in the industry varies significantly.

  •  Maintenance levels at one extreme might involve ‘Condition Monitoring’ (Continuous Monitoring) of equipment with linear or rotating transducers.
  •  At the other end of the spectrum, maintenance might only involve doing Periodic Maintenance Tasks (PMT), Inspections or even Major Maintenance Task (MOT).
  • One can also run equipment until it breaks down or even self-destructs.
  • The vast majority of appropriate switchgear maintenance programs will fall somewhere in between these extremes.

All training courses offered by Peganix have CPD points allocated to them and we are confident that the benefits of attending are obvious and reflect the quality associated with accreditation.
