Circuit breakers play an important role in the safe distribution of electrical power. The equipment needs to be operated, maintained and installed in a safe manner securing continuity of supply to consumers. This following are important aspects of the circuit breakers:

  • Electric power systems are designed to be as fault free as possible through appropriate network design, equipment design, proper installation and on-going maintenance.
  • The Circuit breaker and its associated fault detection equipment, protective relaying, is an extremely important device, through its role of clearing short-circuit currents, disconnecting faulty elements from the power network, and thus maintaining the overall integrity of the power network
  • If faults are not controlled they can cause unnecessary loss of electricity service with all of its many ramifications.
  • The circuit breaker selection and arc extinction methods are of great importance
  • Minimising downtime by proper and systematic maintenance program



Delegates will gain a detailed appreciation of the following:

  • The importance of preventive maintenance check and servicing of the various types of circuit breakers
  • Implementation of safe systems of work and operations
  • Co-ordination of maintenance activities and maintaining system safety
