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.
