Switchgear, circuit breakers, and transformers are critical components in electrical distribution systems, and their operations significantly affect the overall performance of the system. 

The installation of high voltage distribution and transmission equipment has increased considerably over the years due to the ongoing global demand for power. Their failure can impose extraordinarily high costs on plants, factories, and utilities of all descriptions. It is critical that all personnel operating and working with such equipment have a sound knowledge of their operational requirements and maintenance.

This Competency in Circuit Breakers, Switchgear and Power Transformers  course from the Engineering Institute of Technology  will help you gain a solid understanding of the issues associated with the proper application, installation, and maintenance of these critical items of equipment, with an overriding emphasis on safety.

Case studies covering the leading manufacturers’ equipment will illustrate important practical principles. Other power system protection components will be discussed as well to ensure that switchgear is understood in the correct context.
