    • Conductivity checks
    • Shorts and Ground Checks
    • DC commissioning of control circuits, relays and lockouts
    • CT secondary circuit current injection


  • This is not a “sit in your seat” lecture class; it is designed to be a hands-on lab experience where you will gain confidence in performing the steps for the commissioning tasks in a safe environment.
  • 75% of the course is ‘hands-on’ learning experience; students will perform the steps for circuit commissioning with oversight and guidance from facilitators.
  • FR clothing is required for this class.


  • Basic understanding of power system protection theory and application.
  • Working knowledge of AC and DC circuits and terminology.
