The web based training mudule features 6 operating procedures on 3 different medium voltage secondary distribution UniSec systems: SDC, SBC and SFC. Every procedure simulates in a 3D environment a specific task in which the user has to choose the right procedure steps. Results of every session are logged and available for remote evaluation.
The VR training module developed by Forge Reply, thanks to the HTC Vive headset, allows users to experience componets and objects, while phisically moving in a 360° virtual environment. Thanks to specifically designed Joypads, objects are manipulabe, simulating the actual operative procedures of human-machine interfaces. Within the VR training module, 3 medium voltage electric panels are faithfully reproduced, allowing the user to operate on one of the models simulating maintenance procedures like inspections, decommissioning and recovery.
Thanks to the accessibility of the modules and the gradual learning curve demonstrated by user testing, first results on VR training are encouraging for future developments.
