Cable Fault Location & Tracing, Medium-Voltage (CFL&TMV)

Cable Fault Location & Tracing, Medium-Voltage

COURSE OVERVIEW

This hands-on course is intended for new or experienced electricians and technicians that install, maintain, repair or troubleshoot 5-35 kV solid dielectric power cables. Medium voltage cable systems are the backbone of electrical systems worldwide, yet they are often the most ignored part of the power system – until there is a failure. One of the most important aspects of medium voltage cable maintenance is “fault location.” Cable systems today have higher failure rates than ever before, due to aging, environmental stresses and improper installation. The ability to efficiently locate faults, greatly reduces downtime and outage costs.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This hands-on course is intended for new or experienced electricians and technicians that install, maintain, repair or troubleshoot 5-35 kV solid dielectric power cables.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to:

  • Identify medium voltage cable components and causes of failure.
  • Utilize safe work practices for cable testing per OSHA and industry consensus standards.
  • Trace cable installations with modern cable route tracing and identification equipment.
  • Locate secondary faults using earth gradient (sheath fault) technologies.
  • Pinpoint faults using magnetic and acoustical tracing system and arc reflection technologies.
  • Apply a proven fault locating process; Test, Analyze, Localize, Locate to locate faults in a comprehensive cable field lab environment.

REQUIREMENTS

The student should have some field experience and basic knowledge of AC/DC electricity. AVO is committed to the personal safety of each participant and requires appropriate wearing apparel for lab activities. Long pants and ANSI rated “safety toe” work shoes are acceptable as meeting this requirement.

CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS

This course is required for Medium-Voltage Cable Technician Certification
