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.
