Electrical Engineering

This course applies fundamental electrical engineering principles to oil and gas facilities design and operation. The course is designed for Engineers with or without a background in electrical engineering and can accelerate the development of new Electrical Engineers. Through the use of individual and group problem solving, attendees will learn about transformers, motors, generators, one-line diagram interpretation, protection and coordination of electrical equipment, emergency power, site and standby generation, electrical safety, and hazardous areas. Participants will gain a better understanding of electrical components and systems and will develop a greater appreciation for electrical engineering. Students will develop distinctive knowledge & skills among their competitors and be for the Electrical Engineering ‘Job Interviews, and as a result be able to get Electrical Engineering Job in the Top Oil & Gas Companies.


What will student learn?

  • The key components of facilities electric power distribution which include circuit arrangements, low and medium voltage switchgear, and single-phase and three phase schemes
  • Operation, components, electromotive forces, turns and voltage ratios, losses, efficiency, rating, and connections of transformers
  • The difference between direct current motors, alternating current motors, enclosures and how to select motors
  • Protection of electrical equipment including fuses, direct tripping, relaying, and coordination
  • About emergency power to include power requirements, generator sets, direct current systems, batteries, and an overview of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS)
  • Power generation, which includes an overview of emergency, prime, base, peak and co-generation, quality, sizing, operation, control, and power factor correction
  • Grounding and bonding with an overview of systems, equipment, ignition sources, separately derived systems, performance, and substation grounding
