Electrical Equipment for Hazardous Areas and
High-Voltage Electrical Plants
High-voltage electrical systems introduce serious exposure risks that are not always obvious. Extreme
caution must be exercised when coming into close proximity of high-voltage systems, because exposure
to hazards can cause serious injury or even death.
This course covers the main branches of high-voltage technology applied to ship electrical energy and
automation systems. Each element of the course reviews high-voltage system components and the
procedures for their installation, testing, and maintenance.
Components within the high-voltage electrical network, including power generation plants, power
distribution switchboards, power earthing schemes, electric protection schemes, and power loads from
motors and lighting will be discussed.
Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the reasons why high-voltage technology is applied,
the advantages it provides, as well as some disadvantages that have to be carefully taken into account.
In this one-day course, experienced instructors will explain the application of electrical equipment in
hazardous areas and the advantages and disadvantages of high-voltage technology.
