My final 3 months in Switzerland with ABB – my 3rd quarterly report

Please find linked here my third quarterly report, outlining my period of employment from the 10th of April 2012 to the 30th of June 2012.

During my final quarter with ABB, I have been working in the test field, undertaking the system integration, system testing and ABB internal Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) for the Millmerran and Bulli Creek 330kV iPASS substations.

I have also had the opportunity to visit ABB’s IEC 61850 System Verification Centre (SVC) and attend a technical presentation on the SVC.

It should be noted that due to the confidential nature of the work I have undertaken I am not able to include any technical information relating to ABB specific tools and processes.

I welcome your feedback on this report and my goals for the next quarter.

This quarter concludes my nine month term with ABB Switzerland.

On the 23rd of July I commenced my next nine month placement in Scotland with Iberdrola Engineering and Construction (IEC), a subsidiary of the Iberdrola Group

    I am an old 1965 Cornwall Scholar, worked in USA & Canada in 66-69 on EHV transmission design and maintenance, and have been interested in the new reporting mechanism via the ESC Scholar web site. You have a good program going–just don’t be overwhelmed by ABB who often promise the world, but in the past have let down Powerlink on their PASS systems.
    Join in as much outside work activities as you can, esp professional groups , specialist lectures, CIGRE etc., as you will make some very worthwhile contacts for your future.

    All the best– Brian Becconsall
