ELIC003 - Electrical Engineering Fundamentals

Programme Overview

This Electrical Engineering Fundamentals course is intended to create the bridge between the technical concepts and the practical experience gained by the delegates. This course will enable the delegates to acquire knowledge on electrical engineering concepts that are required in the Oil and Gas and Energy industries.

The course is designed for facilities engineers who interface with electrical systems, and provides practical insight and development of new facilities electrical engineers.

Who should attend

Those facilities personnel who interface with facility electrical power systems, including project engineers, operation leads, instrumentation, controls personnel, and electrical engineers who are new to electrical power systems within oil and gas facilities.

By the end of this training course, participants will:

  • Explain the key components of facilities electric power distribution, which include circuit arrangements, low and medium voltage switchgear, and single-phase and three phase schemes
  • Use knowledge about operation, components, electromotive forces, turns and voltage ratios, losses, efficiency, rating, and connections of transformers
  • List the difference between direct current, induction and synchronous current motors, motor enclosures, and how to select motors
  • Apply the principles of protecting electrical equipment, including time current curves, fuses, circuit breakers, and coordination
  • Explain what standby power is, including generators and UPS power systems
  • Explain the purpose for power generation, which includes standby, prime, base, peak, and co-generation
  • Use at work the knowledge about the power factor and correction
  • Explain what grounding and bonding systems are, with an overview of ignition sources, separately derived systems, and substation grounding
  • Use hazardous area identification principles with general information on NEC, IEC, equipment protection, certification, and definitions

To enhance learning effectiveness, hand on experience will be emphasised in this programme through role-plays in class presentation, group facilitation and class critique.

Case studies, group discussions and video support will also be used to enhance learning experience. Fun quizzes will be injected to provide formative assessment and a fun learning environment.

Using individual and group problem solving, attendees will learn about power transformers, motors, generators, one-line diagram interpretation, protection and coordination of electrical equipment, site and standby generation, electrical safety, and hazardous areas identification. Participants will gain a better understanding of electrical power systems in oil and gas facilities.

Methods of assessment is by multiple choice and short answer question papers plus practical assignments.
