This course is designed to provide basic electrical skills to those who need to perform electrical maintenance tasks including the safe isolation, replacement, and testing of a range of common electrical devices (motors, generators, switchboards, batteries, etc.) in a safe and effective manner.
The goal of this course is to teach trainees how to reduce electrical equipment downtime, improve overall efficiency and safety, and fix problems they’ve been unable to solve on their own.

Training in this topic provides that:
• Safety measures for working are appropriate.
• Selection and use of hand tools, measuring instruments, and testing equipment are appropriate and interpretation of results is accurate.
• Dismantling, inspecting repairing, and reassembling equipment are in accordance with manuals and good practice.
• Reassembling and performance testing is in accordance with manuals and good practice.
• various safety hazards present when working on shipboard electrical equipment.
• Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
• Work Permit System and Lockout-Tag out procedures
• types, periods of maintenance and repair and their organization
• maintenance and repair of generators and electric motors
• maintenance and repair of switchboards and their equipment
• maintenance and repair of DC electrical systems and their equipment.
• maintenance of batteries.

•names safety hazards that can be present when working on shipboard electrical equipment: electric shock, arc blast, transient overvoltage, movable (rotating) parts, environmental factors like high temperature, humidity, water, fuel, steam leaks, rain, wind, ship rolling or pitching.
•names and is able to select proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to be used when working on various shipboard electrical equipment: coveralls, safety or insulation shoes, safety glasses or full-face shield, insulation gloves, insulation mates, hearing protection equipment, safety harness, hard hat, rubber apron, dust mask, flash suits
•explains how to choose a safe electric meter for different overvoltage categories.
•explains how Work Permit System works.
•explains the use of fixed and portable earthing devices and how to apply them safely.
•describes the principle of the major and periodic overhaul, periodic and daily maintenance, survey after damage.
•explains the principle of organization of maintenance, repairs and describes how to document maintenance, repairs, and trials.
•describes how to manage maintenance intervals, repairs, and spare parts in the computer system.
•explains principles of maintenance and repair of equipment installed in main switchboard, an emergency switchboard, and distribution panels with specific reference to:
– circuit breakers
– tripping devices
– contactors
– relays
– thermal relays
– fuses
– bus bars

– measuring instruments
– PLC controllers and monitoring panels
– heating and ventilation circuits
• explains principles of maintenance and repair of generators with specific reference to:
– generator winding condition
– main exciter winding condition
– air filters and cleaning procedures
– automatic voltage regulator inspection
– exciter, rotating rectifier, varistor, and residual voltage check
– PMG (Permanent Magnet Generator)
– main terminal connections
•explains principles of maintenance and repair of the AC and DC electric motors with specific reference to:
– motor bearings, windings, and terminals
– heating and cooling systems
– couplings
– electromagnetic brakes
– starters
– speed control systems
• explains the principles of maintenance and repair of batteries of different types.
• explains the principles of maintenance and repair of frequency converters, rectifiers, and backup-UPS.
