Course overview:

Telecommunication Power System is a crucial element of any communications network and it is one of the few elements capable of causing a total failure or malfunction of even the most sophisticated network.

Cellular networking systems require huge amounts of power, and in many markets, grid power is unreliable, making diesel fuel the next best choice. Not only is replacing energy from the grid with solar energy and offsetting fossil fuel sources like diesel environmentally responsible, but it can provide telecommunications companies with higher shareholder value and lower operating expenses.

This workshop is a comprehensive 5-day course will be covering the various size of diesel generator, battery bank, charger, AMF, power monitoring, inverters, UPS, standards, including IEC and IEEE as well as best practice. In addition, that course will be included maintenance data log preservation and analysis data for forecast. This workshop is a highly focused and in-depth training provided by the industry experts along with the relevant updates from the research team.

After successful completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

    • Understand the working principal of Telecommunications Power operation and maintenance and the global telecom incorporated standards.
    • Explain the fundamental concepts of power system equipment and reliable supply and maintenance.
    • Sketch necessary elements of Telecom Power Systems, such as, Diesel Generator, Batteries, Air Conditioning system, UPS, Inverters, Circuit Breakers etc.
    • Illustrate Lightning and Surge Protection System as well as Earthing and Grounding requirements.
    • Integrate all power system to alarm monitoring system or centralized monitoring system.
    • Learn Standards and best practices.

Targeted Audience:

This program is designed for directors, managers, engineers, technicians, in a word for professionals from telecom operators, vendors, regulators, or oil/gas industry who are engaged in installation, inspection, operations, monitoring and maintenance of the equipment related to power or energy sector.

End of the workshop


While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
