Aim the Course
This is a further half-day course and attendance on the basic awareness course is a prerequisite for attending this advanced course. This course is aimed at engineers and technicians who are working on and modifying the electrical traction systems in electric or hybrid vehicles.
— Brief review of processes and terminology used with respect to electrical protection— Brief review of typical electrical architectures and systems design for high voltage
safety and high voltage fault management
— Basic principles for safe electrical working, to include:
— Risk assessments and Safe Systems of Work— Permits to work
— Personnel competence and qualification
— Use of personal protective equipment and appropriate tools
— Workshop safety practices
— Isolation of electrical equipment before work
— Confirmation that electrical equipment is not live before work
— Testing procedures for ensuring electrical circuits are safe to work on, and remain so until work is complete.
— Available resources e.g. HSE Publications
— Safe working techniques in electric and hybrid vehicle testing, build and maintenance, to include:
— Handling and storage of high voltage components (specifically batteries)
— Vehicle or prototype build
— Testing – test procedures during build (e.g. confirming no high voltage present during assembly) and for testing of completed vehicles
— Crash testing and destructive component testing
— General maintenance procedures for electric and hybrid vehicles
— Rework or repair of electric and hybrid vehicles
— Disposal – of removed components during maintenance or end-of-life
— Practical demonstration of safe working techniques
— End-of-course test and issue of course completion certificate
