The HFC Outside Plant (OSP) Maintenance Technician Basics Series addresses the needs of the Broadband Cable System Technician who is tasked with the preemptive troubleshooting requirements or maintenance of the broadband HFC network. The programs are visually rich with detailed explanations of each subject. Along the way, students will be presented with engaging presentations designed to draw the learner into the programs. To make sure that there is maximum retention of the material, interactive quizzes are presented and the student must correctly answer the quizzes before being allowed to proceed to the next learning objective. A final test confirms that the student has a solid comprehension of the course material.
This second part of the series, AC Power, discusses how utility power is generated and transported to the HFC plant where a power supply conditions the power to another voltage and waveform. Distribution of AC power through the HFC network is described and the student learns how to identify power supply locations on network maps. The student then applies Ohm’s law to calculate the voltage going into nodes and amplifiers.
Upon completion, the learner will:
* explain how utility power is generated, transmitted and distributed to drive HFC outside plant electronics
* describe the role of the standby power supply and how to safely maintain it
* calculate voltage drops and troubleshoot problems in the outside plant
* use system maps to quickly locate power supplies in the field
By completing/passing this course, you will attain the certificate HFC OSP Maintenance Technician Training: Basics Series
