Cable Testing & Diagnostics, Medium-Voltage (CTDMV)

Cable Testing & Diagnostics, Medium-Voltage

COURSE OVERVIEW

This comprehensive hands-on preventative maintenance course is intended for engineers, electrical technicians, and supervisors that test, install, maintain, repair or troubleshoot 5-35 kV solid dielectric and paper insulated power cables. Students will perform and analyze results of insulation resistance tests (DAR & PI), type I withstand tests (DC, AC, & VLF). Also, diagnostic test such as Partial Discharge and Tan Delta will be performed.

Cable Diagnosis is predictive and is often performed as part of condition based maintenance strategies. This course focuses on data collection to provide information about the overall condition of the cable. Students will learn the indicators that cable performance is deteriorating, understanding the signs that cable is about to fail and when to perform maintenance.

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.
  • Interpret current industry cable testing standards and procedures.
  • Perform and analyze results Insulation Resistance Tests (DAR and PI).
  • Perform and analyze results of Withstand Tests (DC, AC & VLF).
  • Perform and analyze results of Diagnostic Field Tests (Tan Delta & PD).
  • Outline the benefits gained by establishing a Conditioned Based Cable Maintenance Program.

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.
