Transformer Lifecycle Management

This course provides the knowledge to successfully plan and manage in the lifecycle of the transformer:  from specification and purchasing; to transportation, assembly and start-up; to field and shop repair options, including end-of-life options; to overall risk and asset management.  Develop and manage a maintenance program and/or lead the overall delivery of that program.  Create purchase and repair specifications, coordinate factory inspections, understand acceptance testing, adhere to transportation and installation requirements, create risk assessments, and make proper field or shop repair decisions.

What You'll Learn

  • Transformer lifecycle stages
  • Requirements of a new or remanufactured unit
  • Remanufacturing and rewind processes
  • Factory and field acceptance testing standards
  • Transformer shipping logistics and transit protection
  • Fluid and electrical testing requirements

Day 5

Advanced DGA Diagnostics

Learn to identify fault gases and what causes their formation. We will explain and provide examples of qualitative and quantitative interpretation of dissolved gases and how to evaluate the condition of cellulose insulation. This class will also examine the role DGA plays in new oil testing and discuss procedures to obtain a representative sample from transformers.

What You'll Learn

  • Learn to identify fault gases and what causes their formation.
  • Apply qualitative and quantitative methods for interpretation of dissolved gas concentrations.
  • Identifying other combustible gases within transformers.
  • Learn what to do in the event of a fault and for the generation of combustible gases.
  • Examine the role DGA plays in new oil testing.
  • Discuss procedures to obtain a representative sample from transformers.

 This course is also available as customer on-site training.

Inspection & Sampling of Fluid-Filled Transformers

Learn the proper and safe procedures needed to obtain a representative sample of dielectric fluid. Features a sampling demonstration and practical exercises to obtain accurate oils samples for use in lab analysis.

What You'll Learn

  • Safety hazards and PPE requirements.
  • Identify transformers that require extraordinary procedures to obtain samples.
  • Gain knowledge of transformers, auxiliary equipment, accessories and other equipment.
  • Learn proper oil sampling procedures.
  • Learn how proper samples lead to a more accurate trending history.
