Electrical Equipment and Control Systems: Commissioning, Testing and Start-Up of Electrical Systems


The safe and efficient operation of modern electrical equipment and control systems requires the successful testing, start-up, and commissioning of this equipment or system to ensure the correct operation plus accurate troubleshooting and subsequent repair of this equipment or system to ensure continued productivity.

Delegates are encouraged to raise queries both during and at any time after attending the seminar. Delegates are also encouraged to bring with them any issues that they may have to this seminar.


Following the attendance at this seminar, participants will return to their respective organizations equipped with new or refreshed skills to ensure that electrical equipment and control systems are tested and commissioned in a fashion that ensures reduced costs and or start-up delays plus identified faults or problems are repaired and the underlying causes are identified and eliminated to reduce further failures.

On successful completion of this seminar, participants will have:

  • A better understanding of commissioning procedures
  • A better understanding of troubleshooting procedures
  • An improved capability in the use of test equipment
  • A better understanding of failure modes and failure analysis
  • A refreshed awareness of electrical safety concerns

Target Audience

This seminar is intended for Electrical Engineers, Electrical Supervisors and Electrical Technicians engaged in the commissioning, testing, start-up, troubleshooting, maintenance and repair of Electrical Equipment and Control Systems. Because the methods and examples are generic, personnel from all industries will benefit. Participants need no specific requirements other than good understanding of electricity and magnetism and some relevant experience
