Advanced Condition Based Maintenance of Electrical Equipments


Course Objective:

The participants will learn about various diagnostic Testing methods like: Offline & Online testing, high level test like Motor Current and Torque Signature, Acoustic Emission, Surge Testing (IEEE522), Tan Delta & Capacitance Measurement, Partial Discharge Measurement, Dielectric Response Analysis. The latest VLF (Very Low Frequency) HIPOT will be discussed in comparison to DC HIPOT and AC HIPOT Testing as per IEEE 433.
