This course addresses GIS monitoring topics including gas monitoring, partial discharge tests, and circuit breaker monitoring. The control topics of bay controllers and control diagrams are also discussed. The fundamentals of gas monitoring including the related alarms are described and gas monitoring routines are presented. Types of faults causing partial discharges are discussed, as well as details on partial discharge measuring procedures, where electric, acoustic, chemical specific routines of partial discharge monitoring with GIS are presented.

Current and voltage transformer wiring including mimic schemes are presented. The function of the bay controller with all its basic elements is presented. Control diagrams of different mode selections and interlocking are provided and examples are presented.

This course is intended for electrical engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of GIS technology control and monitoring. Presented topics refer to the latest standards, regulations and relevant industry practices. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be understand basic control and monitoring principles, operation and control methods and tests that need to be completed before commissioning. List of the relevant standards for additional details is also included.
