Course Content

Switchgear overview
"Switchgear Overview," is designed to provide a foundational understanding of switchgear, detailing its significance, various types, and the critical components that comprise it. This initial segment aims to educate participants about the essential safety features inherent in switchgear systems and the risk mitigation strategies necessary when working with high voltage environments, setting the groundwork for more advanced topics in subsequent stages.

Circuit Breaker Rack In / Out Process
Stage 2, titled "Circuit Breaker Rack In / Out Process," delves into the procedural aspects of handling circuit breakers within electrical systems. This segment is designed to teach participants the correct methods for inserting (racking in) and removing (racking out) circuit breakers, operating earthing switches for safety, manually opening the shutters for access or inspection, and confirming the de-energisation of the system to ensure a safe working environment. This stage is critical for understanding the physical interaction with high voltage equipment and the safety protocols necessary to prevent electrical hazards.

Interactive Simulation: Rack In / Rack Out Process + Switchyard
Stage 3, titled "Interactive Simulation: Rack In / Rack Out Process," is designed as an interactive game that provides hands-on experience with the rack in and rack out process of circuit breakers within a virtual switchyard environment. This stage offers an immersive learning experience where participants can apply the theoretical knowledge gained from the previous stages. They will engage in a simulated environment to perform the racking in and out, operate switchyard mechanisms, and execute safety protocols such as switchyard closing procedures. This interactive simulation aims to enhance understanding through practical application, allowing for the reinforcement of safety practices and operational procedures in a controlled, risk-free setting.
