High Voltage Switching Operations (HVSO)
Compliance Training & Engineering – RTO Number 41014
This is a four day course, delivered at Compliance Training & Engineering's (CTE) Brisbane training centre, or can be delivered at any site throughout Australia.
Typically a minimum of 6 people is required to run the course.
Our High Voltage Switching (HVSO) course covers the following topics:
- Legislation and Standards
- Risk management and control
- Reading and understanding HV Single Line Diagrams
- Understanding HV Protection Systems
- Approach to high voltage – safe systems of work, permit types and permit procedures
- Writing and checking switching programs
- Performing switching to a switching network.
Our course is derived from the latest training packages; UEP12 Electricity Supply Industry – Generation Sector Training Package and UET12 Transmission, Distribution and Rail Sector Training Package.
Students are able to perform practical switching in one of our "partners" purpose-built HV switching facilities. The practical phase involves using a range of functioning and interconnected high voltage switchgear that provide the student a real switching experience. Additionally, the interconnected low voltage system provides LV switching and bus-ties to provide more complex switching scenarios.
Upon successful completion of the course, a Statement of Attainment reflecting the completed Units of Competency from the range below, will be issued to qualifying participants.
|UEPOPS349B||Operate HV Primary Switchgear|
|UEPOPS357B||Operate HV Secondary Switchgear|
