Certificate Programme In Power Distribution: (Substation Operations, Lines Maintenance, Cable Jointing And Fitters)

Electricity has become one of the most important necessities of modern life. Bulk electrical power is usually generated in remote locations, transmitted to major load centres through a network of transmission lines and finally to the end user (consumer), through distribution lines. For this to happen, there must be some interface facilities called substations where voltage changing takes place. Moreover, overhead lines represent a substantial component of the energy delivery chain and therefore play a major role in the sustainability of an electricity utility business. The reliability of electrical network has always depended to a greater degree on the skill of the jointer in making satisfactory joints. Though the cable itself must be manufactured under carefully controlled conditions and joints should be designed to be the strongest part of the cable. Hence it connects the electricity source to the service conductors. The prime function of operating staff is to ensure the most continuous production, transmission and distribution of adequate power at satisfactory voltage level as possible with available tools and equipment, with due consideration to the safeguarding of life and property and observance of the operating limits of equipment. A great deal of effort of operating staff in ensuring the continuous flow of power is of planned and fairly routine nature. However, emergencies or disturbances occur from time to time, requiring operators to quickly assess situations, make judgments or decisions and then take appropriate actions. This specialized training programme has been carefully packaged to accommodate the technical skill job areas in power distribution so as enable successful trainees develop skills in their own areas of interest.
