Batteries are complex electrochemical devices critical to the safe and immediate response of every substation to a fault condition.

This hands on program will train engineers, electricians and others how to maintain and test stationary batteries utilizing the latest standards of CSA, NFPA , IEEE and NETA.

This course is customized to the equipment of each client and the levels of each learner to ensure maximum skill transfer and participation. Participants will conduct load, impedance, conductance and other tests on various battery strings, analyze the data and judge the results.

Who should attend: Engineers, electricians, technologists and technicians

You will be able to: Test and maintain substation batteries
