Why this programme?
This module discloses the proper functioning of electrical equipment when they are connected in the electrical network.

Therefore, they are studied from the disturbances that there are in the electrical network, to the devices that are connected, with their corresponding maintenance.

The transformers, the generators, the motors, the low voltage devices, the generators, the lighting, are some of the elements studied from the point of view of maintenance.

The contracting of electric power, although sometimes managed by the department in charge of maintenance, is also dealt with in this module.

We also highlight the study of the regulations that refer to the review of facilities.
  • To provide maintenance technicians with comprehensive knowledge in industrial installations and techniques to be able to avoid breakdowns using proper testing and diagnostics.
  • To offer the means and knowledge needed to resolve breakdowns quickly and safely.
Who is it for?
  • Engineers
  • Technical engineers
  • Technicians and industry professionals who want to specialise in the field of industrial maintenance or upgrade or expand their knowledge.
