Electrical Engineering: Background Knowledge

TRAINING OBJECTIVE

 

PEDAGOGY

At the end of the course, the trainees will know the basics of electricity in order to operate electrical installations.

Length of the course: 5 days

 
  • Individual testing of knowledge at the beginning in order to adapt the training program
  • Alternate exercises and presentations
  • Individual testing of knowledge at the end of the course, with relevant comments by the trainer

TRAINING PROGRAM

  • Elements in an electrical circuit
  • Electrical parameters (voltage, current, resistance, power, alternating current, direct current, Ohm law, Joule effect, etc.)
  • Single-phase alternating current circuits (principles, schematic representation, sinusoidal signal, phase shift, power factor, etc.) 
  • Balanced three-phase circuits (voltage drop, cable diameter and protections) 
  • Powers (active, reactive and apparent) 
  • Unbalanced three-phase circuits and role of the neutral
 
  • Fault currents (overload, short circuit and earth fault)
  • Principles of electromagnetism
  • Transformer
  • Electrical measuring devices
  • Circuit breaker, fuses and meter
  • Rotating machines (direct and alternating current)
  • Protection equipment, breaking capacity, insulation, etc.
  • The risks of working with electricity
  • Electrical safety rules
