This 5-hour course will assist individuals, organizations, and suppliers with the technical requirements for metal-clad (MC) medium voltage switchgear. Metal-clad switchgear is compartmentalized to isolate all components such as instrumentation, main bus, and both incoming and outgoing connections with grounded metal barriers. This standard covers metal-clad switchgear containing devices such as power circuit breakers, other interrupting devices, switches, control, instrumentation and metering, and protective and regulating equipment.
The course materials are based entirely on IEEE C37.20.2-2015 Standard for Metal-clad Switchgear. It will be necessary for the student to obtain a copy of IEEE C37.20.2-2015. This is a very useful resource and is recommended that all practicing electrical or project engineers involved in the specification, design, installation, and maintenance of medium voltage metal-clad switchgear be familiar with and up to date with the provisions of this standard.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
