The course examines the basics and operating principles of SCR drive systems, and covers the main components of typical generator and drive control switchboards as used extensively on drilling rigs.
Practical work will be undertaken in our training facility on our fully functional Ross Hill SCR system with 600V AC generators, DC drilling motors, top drive control system, and motor control centre.
The practical exercises are conducted on our working systems in a realistic environment, and the candidates will get hands-on experience that is almost impossible to acquire on the rig whilst drilling operations are in progress. With this experience and their improved fault finding skills, troubleshooting time in the workplace (and potential rig downtime) should be minimised.
