Why You Should Attend

HV Substation Design 2021 [Virtual Live+ Available]

Workplace safety is the utmost priority for all industries in Australia. This is even more so for the electrical industry as electrical incidents almost always result in serious injuries, fatalities or significant financial losses. Having a properly designed substation with an effective protection system can not only mitigate potential electrical hazards, but also lowers the risk of workplace incidents from happening.

marcus evans High Voltage Substation Design 2021 Training will focus on designs, safety systems, and standards compliance for the High Voltage range of 11 kV to 66 kV. This event aims to provide practical ways to create a compliant substation design, utilizing the right protection system based on your facility, understanding key aspects and specifications of energized equipment, keeping up to date with current electrical design standards and more.
