High voltage operating responsibility refers to the provision of services against negative situations that may occur in electrical installations such as transformers. High voltage operating responsibility is also known as transformer responsibility. The beginning and methods of this service are subject to a certain regulation. Transformer management responsibility was created to prevent loss of life and property and to ensure a certain order. In order to carry out high voltage operating responsibility, an SMM certificate is required. There are certain regulations to reduce damage at high voltage points. Electrical engineers who want to perform high voltage operating responsibility must receive training in this field. These trainings are completed in a period of 3 days and 18 hours. As a result of the training given, the engineers are subjected to an exam. Those who score at least 70 points out of 100 in the exam are granted the high voltage operating responsibility authorization certificate. With this certificate, the engineers become high voltage operating responsibility authorities.
The high voltage facilities of transformers are inspected. The person performing high voltage operating responsibility reports any deficiencies or negative situations that exist in these areas. The report is communicated to the operator. The high voltage schematics of the lines in these areas are drawn and posted in the cell section. The person performing high voltage operating responsibility signs the maneuver instructions that have been prepared and provides them to the operating personnel. He evaluates any malfunctions that may occur and performs the required maneuvers. He is responsible for the education of the personnel of the operating facility. He ensures that the grounding systems of the facility are checked and maintained at regular intervals. The high voltage operating responsibility personnel also checks the safety measures and materials. If he sees any deficiencies in these areas, he reports them to the operator. He evaluates the facility on a daily basis. He acts as a bridge between the operator and the energy supply company and makes the necessary directives. He also monitors the personnel in the facility. If he sees any deficiencies in the personnel, he provides the necessary training. He also takes care of the maintenance of the safety materials used for security purposes. Maintenance is carried out at the intervals he has established.
