Generator Operation and Primary Maintenance (Aug. 22 - 24)
Level 1: Generator Operation and Primary Maintenance Program (3 days)
Prime Power Training designed this program as an introduction to the safe operation and primary maintenance procedures for managing an emergency power supply system. As an operator, you are responsible for managing the operation of your system. This includes doing regular checks to ensure that your system is at peak performance, understanding what a primary maintenance program should look like, and being able to identify the primary components of a generator and what role they play in the overall system. In this program, trainees will spend 20% of their time learning theory, procedures, and electrical safety, while the other 80% is hands-on training so they have the best possible understanding of what managing a primary maintenance program includes. Topics include:
Learning Objectives: Attendees will….
- Be able to perform primary maintenance tasks (oil changes, coolant flushes, fuel testing, evaluation and maintenance of fluid systems components and devices)
- Be able to perform electrical system analysis and testing, specifically conductance testing and voltage drop testing.
