Electrical Pressure Testing Course

The electrical pressure testing course covers the theory  and practical principles of pressure testing on HV distribution systems up to and including 15kV, explaining the different insulating material characteristics as well as the methods used to enable the pressure testing of high voltage equipment, including cables, switchgear, transformers and motors with emphasis placed upon safety requirements and understanding of test results.

The high voltage testing in this course will demonstrate to high voltage engineers or trainee engineers the safe principles one must have to operate safely.
