MillaSA’s workshop aims to provide a practical understanding of planning, design, application and maintenance aspects of high and medium voltage substations for utility networks and industrial plants on the national grid.
MillaSA welcomes you to the substation design and maintenance workshop. Substations play a significant role in the national power grid in maintaining the endurance of power supply and power quality to the industrial and commercial customers. The high voltage substation comprises of switching equipment, transformers, reactors, protection, control, automation and communication. A correctly planned and designed substation is vital for the consistent operation of the national grid.
MillaSA brings you this course which covers all aspects of high and medium voltage substation design and maintenance including environmental requirements, general design considerations, application of switching and power equipment, fault calculations, safe grounding design, protection/control, automation and communication, and maintenance considerations.
This event has been accredited with ECSA with 2 CPD credits
