Electrical & Instrumentation Design Installation & Operation Course

Electrical & Instrumentation Design, Installation & Operation Course

15th-17th June 2021, Gulf/Arabia Standard Time

OverviewAgendaCourse LeaderRegisterVenueContact


The Electrical & Instrumentation Design, Installation & Operation will cover an introduction to shop drawing reading, ways and methods to read single line diagrams, followed by basics of electrical design & drafting. Attendees will acquire skill in instrumentation drafting & process parameters. Basics design requirements based on the types of plants – with their industrial application will also be discussed. The objective is also to present the attendees with electrical protection methodology used in switchgears. Role & methods of electrification in buildings, as well as their external working and infrastructure, will be a point of discussion in a stand-alone session. A complete overview of relevant authority regulations- codes and standards will be presented. Participants will learn about principles of motors & generators as well about HV, MV and LV electrical distribution. Participants will gain knowledge on loop diagram readings and preparation of single line diagrams. Further, fundamentals of control systems & instrumentation and the importance of secure earthing and bonding will be discussed
