Transmission and Distribution: Substations and Switchyards

4.0 21 Reviews SKU: RVI-11373Duration: 60 Minutes

Electricity affects almost everything we do.  Sometimes its impact is so subtle, we don't even realize it's there.  Just about everybody depends on it and expects it to be available when it's needed.  From the businesses that use electricity to process information to suburban homeowners who rely on electricity for the basic conveniences we've grown accustomed to, to the rural dairy farmer who relies on electricity to operate much of his machinery, our entire country is interlaced with transmission and distribution systems that get electricity to where it's needed when it's needed.    The purpose of this interactive online course is to teach the basic safety principles and practices applicable to substation and switchyard maintenance work. The course describes electrical, chemical, and personal hazards that may be encountered in substations and switchyards. A general procedure for responding to imminent dangers and accidents is also presented. At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to identify hazards in substations and switchyards and explain why safety practices are important. They should be able to recognize hazards and unsafe practices on the job, and they should have a general understanding of how to respond to imminent dangers and accidents.

“This is a good, updated course of the Substations and Switchyards course, in fact, this course follows the course materials for that book from that course. However, the book was updated from the original CiNet book that was originally in the Substation and Switchyard Maintenance course and there are a number of errors in the book such as typos, missing phrases, etc., very poorly reviewed, if it was reviewed at all. If you would like me to provide specific details of the errors, please contact me (Ryan Caya, Training Coordinator, Basin Electric Power Cooperative, Leland Olds Station) at rcaya@bepc.com.”

“In the pre-exam, the question "Which device is typically inspected in the switchyard control house?" seems to have the wrong answer. I chose the "Status Indicator", which was marked wrong. I'm guessing the answer that was plugged into the pre-exam was "Disconnect", since this also needs to be inspected, but this is outside the control house. Please research this one.”
