The industrial switchgear and motor control course provides the basic skills required to safely operate and maintain medium-voltage switchgear, low-voltage switchgear, medium-voltage control, and low-voltage motor control centers. Classroom instruction, video tapes, and hands on experience on typical equipment are employed. Sample circuit breakers are used for trouble shooting and replacement of typical parts. The students will perform maintenance procedures on the equipment. Proper methods for performing the insulation resistance test, dielectric and vacuum integrity test, and contact resistance test are demonstrated and completed by the students. Additional equipment, typically found on medium and low voltage switchgear and control such as protective relays and metering devices, is discussed.
