“Standby Generator” Operation, Testing, Maintenance and Troubleshooting

18-19 Dec, 2017, Kuala Lumpur

OBJECTIVE

A standby generator is a back-up electrical system that operates automatically, within seconds of a utility outage an automatic transfer switch sensors the power loss, commands the generator to start and then transfer the electrical load to the generator. The standby generator begins to supply power to the loads.

 

After utility power resumes back, the automatic transfer switch transfers the electrical load back to the utility and signals the standby generator to shut off. It then returns to standby mode where it awaits the next outage.

 

To ensure a proper response to an outage, a standby generator has to be properly self-tests and extensively monitored, service and maintained. To implement the right approach of self-tests, service and maintenance, it must be done by the most relevant skills, competent and well trained personnel. This course is mainly focus on providing the most appropriate guidance on the daily operation, testing, maintenance and troubleshooting of standby generator.

AFTER ATTENDING THIS COURSE YOU WILL RETURN TO YOUR JOB…
  1. Monitoring the standby generator appropriately.
  2. Servicing and maintaining the standby generator in an effective manner.
  3. Identifying faults and troubleshooting.
  4. Being able to lengthen the life span of the standby generator.
  5. Minimizing downtime and cost of maintenance.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
  • Most suitable and relevant to the technical personnel who are directly or indirectly involved in the management, operation and maintenance of standby generators, such as Managers, Engineers, Chargeman, Technicians, etc.
