Electrical Safety Substations - 3 PDH

Email
This course provides an introduction to electrical safety when working around substations and switchgear. A substation provides a protected area for switching power circuits and may include transforming power from one voltage to another. For the purposes of this discussion, substation refers to substations and switching stations. A substation presents an inherent safety hazard because usually only some portions of the substation apparatus can be deenergized for maintenance. For safe operation and maintenance, a thorough knowledge of the substation, including aerial and underground line connections, is necessary. Systems are designed to be safe to operate if maintained properly. Operating safely requires maintenance to be done in a manner that eliminates risks and requires knowledge of the work area, its hazards, and its design basis.
