RCNET Maintenance Toolkit: Electrical


Toolkit Description: 

This Electrical course is from RCNET Comprehensive Teaching Toolkit: Maintenance and is drawn from curriculum taught in the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station Training Program. The program is designed to train nuclear maintenance technicians to work in nuclear power plants and covers Electrical Maintenance, Instrumentation and Control Maintenance, and Mechanical Maintenance.

For more information about this Toolkit and additional RCNET Toolkits, please visit the RCNET Comprehensive Teaching Toolkit Maintenance record.

Toolkit Course Contents:
RCNET Maintenance Toolkit: Electrical covers the topics of electronic controls, print reading and troubleshooting, electrical distribution, turbine cranes, turbine crane design and maintenance, emergency diesel generators, power conversion, medium voltage circuit breakers and switchgear, splices, large termination, and amps.

Materials available as part of the Teaching Toolkit include a course evaluation, a course overview, a lab evaluation, and several PowerPoint presentations and lesson plans. 

The course overview document belongs to Solid State Fundamentals for Electricians and offers learning objectives, and a comprehensive course outline matching ACADs in this area. 

The course evaluation is an adaptable document that provides a questionnaire about the course contents and effectiveness. 

The lab evaluation document provides a place for the instructor to evaluate student achievement through labs and exercises available as part of the course. 

Thirteen multi-part lesson plans are provided and include ACADs, a lesson introduction, classroom guidelines, motivation, comprehensive steps for labs and activities, as well as a summary of main principles with an objectives review, question and answer section, and problem areas.

Twenty-Four PowerPoint presentations are included, and also include ACADs covered in the lesson. 

For orientation purposes the 'Electrical Controls V1 64 Hours lesson plan' PDF is included as a separate attachment and offers a sample of the type of material included in this course. 

Below is a list of the files contained within the .zip attachment. The size of each file is included in parenthesis.
