Electrical Engineering Practices for Facilities Personnel

Introduction

Electrical Engineering Practices for Facilities applies Electrical Engineering principles to oil and gas facilities design and operation and requires some field experience. Electrical Engineering principles are reinforced through the use of individual and team problem-solving exercises one-line diagram coordination interpretation, and class discussions of interfaces between facilities engineers, contractors, and maintenance personnel. Participants gain additional understanding of electrical equipment requirements for facilities and what is important to the Electrical discipline.


Objectives

By the end of this course participants will learn:

  • Impact of power factor on facility efficiency
  • Impact of three-phase voltage unbalance on AC electric motors
  • Power factor improvement
  • Transformers sizing and fault protection
  • Wire fault current ampacity
  • One-line diagrams
  • Protection coordination of circuit breakers and fuses
  • Switchgear and Motor Control Centers (MCC)
  • UPS and battery systems
  • Hazardous area classification for electrical equipment

Target Audience

Oil and Gas facilities engineers with two to five years field experience and electrical or controls engineers with one to three or more years of field experience or those who have completed the E3 course who need to further improve their understanding of electrical systems within oil and gas facilities.


Electrical Engineering Outline
The course covers the following topics:
  • Single and three-phase electrical circuits
  • Impact of voltage unbalance (single-phase) on AC electric motors
  • Transformer sizing and temperature rise
  • Fault current approximation
  • One-line diagram protection zone discussion
  • Relay coordination requirements for transformers and motors
  • Switchgear and Motor Control Centers descriptions and ratings
  • UPS and battery systems types and duration estimation
  • Hazardous area classification exercise
  • Electrical installation issues
