Installation and Earth Testing

Date: 1 February 2018
Type of event: Seminar
Time: 08:30 – 16:00
Venue: Comtest House, 10 Enterprise Close, Linbro Park, Sandton, Gauteng
Address: 10 Enterprise Close, Linbro Park, Santon
Website: Click here
Costs: Paid Event

Comtest Pty Ltd is offering a one day technical seminar that will review the technology implemented by the various tests that need to be done during the design, installation and commissioning phases of a new electrical system. The second session will look at what is required to maintain a live system to ensure that it operates efficiently, and most importantly that should a serious fault occur, the system will absorb the fault energy and keep the system safe. The initial design of an electrical installation from the local transformer to the user facility is usually done with care and attention to the planned energy usage of the facility. However, with time, the system deteriorates and the electrical activities and energy usage may change radically or may, in fact, become unstable and dangerous, especially if a fault condition occurred. Upon attendance of this seminar, you will receive 1 CPD Credits under validation number SAIEE-2080-V.

DUE 2018  Domestic Use of Energy

Date: 03 April 2018 – 5 April 2018
Type of event: Conference
Time: 09:00 – 17:00
Venue: Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Cape Town Campus
Address: Tennant Street, Cape Town
Website: Click here
Costs: Paid event

The conference is a celebration of the convenience of electricity and investigates new ways to “do more with the energy you use” – productive use of a strategic resource by an ever expanding base of consumers in both the residential and business sector means that South Africa can grow its economy thanks to a reliable electricity supply. This year our theme is Energy is Life, and the focus is on e-mobility, including electric vehicles Last year we celebrated a quarter-century of the Domestic Use of Energy Conference (DUE) that presents a platform to consider the challenges of domestic energy use. Discussing the latest technologies, the most recent developments, global trends and industry-changing breakthroughs, DUE 2018 will contribute to improving the capacity of South African households to enjoy the convenience of electricity by using it wisely.  Reflecting our strategic objective – towards sustainable energy solutions for the developing world – this year’s conference focuses on assisting the electrification process in South Africa by extending the options to bring power to an estimated 1.5 million households in rural areas. The benefits of an electrified home are self-evident: Families being able to wash and clean with hot water, children studying at night and parents being able to provide an evening meal without having to use polluting fuels to cook, are but three examples of the immensely positive socio-economic consequences of having access to electricity.  Worldwide over 4 million people die prematurely every year as a result of illnesses attributable to household air pollution from cooking on polluting stoves. There are many ways in which electricity gives us more time for what is really important and eases our lives beyond the most basic of lifestyle necessities.Lighting, for instance, has become so efficient that we can use it in all manner of novel ways. The growing excitement about autonomous and electric vehicles is currently revolutionising the motor vehicle industry. More thermally efficient homes are being built, which makes climate control far more affordable. With South Africa having entered a new era of surplus generation capacity, more electricity can be supplied to more households – and the long-term growth plans of more businesses energised – than at any time during the past decade.
