The AVO Training Institute offers 4 courses related to engineering. These courses focus on maintaining productivity and safety at your facility.
Proper testing and maintenance of electromechanical protective relays in industrial distribution systems is paramount to preventing damage to equipment, interruptions to power and accidents resulting in harm to employees. Deterioration over time can cause failure of components. Having professionally trained personnel who can properly test and recognize failing equipment is essential to maintaining the integrity of your protection scheme.
Unlike a low-voltage breaker, medium-voltage breakers rated at 1 kV or higher rely on external controls to operate effectively. That means technicians have more components to test and maintain. Failure of a breaker can cause damage to other equipment and is extremely hazardous to nearby personnel. Properly trained technicians can alleviate these dangers and improve system performance.
