Industrial Training Simulators

High Voltage Switching Simulator

The simulator provides an ideal temporary facility on site to ensure students can genuinely demonstrate they can “Operate local HV switchgear” and “Perform switching” as required by the assessment criteria of UEPOPS349B – Operate Local HV Switchgear and UEPOPS456A – Perform Switching to a Switching Program. A further advantage is that the high voltage switching and the operation of the high voltage switchgear and testing equipment are performed with the equipment deenergised providing a controlled and safe training environment.
