Day 1 - Day 3

Transformer Management Essentials (formerly Half-Century Transformer)

This course provides a foundational understanding of the internal and external elements of the transformer, the essentials of transformer operation and maintenance implementation and related industry standards. It covers the chemical, mechanical and electrical components of the transformer, the purpose and operating characteristics of these components, the significant requirements and methods for maintenance, and the major testing involved in maintenance.

What You'll Learn

  • The role of transformers in power transmission and distribution
  • Transformer design and assembly
  • The transformer aging process
  • Common dielectric fluid tests
  • Interpreting test results (mineral oils)
  • Common field electrical tests and their purpose
  • Predictive, preventative and reactive maintenance
  • Chemical, mechanical and electrical maintenance procedures
  • Equipment condition assessments
  • and more…

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

Day 4

Electrical Testing - Understanding Power Factor Testing for Transformers, Bushings, and Breakers

This is a one-day class that gives an in depth understanding of Power Factor Testing in the field. The Power Factor is a measurement of the efficiency of the transformer's insulation system and therefore a reliable electrical test to detect deterioration that may cause significant issues with the operation of the transformer.

What You'll Learn

  • Power factor theory
  • Test circuits
  • Transformer power factor test
  • Bushing tests
  • Breaker tests (OCB and SF6)
  • Excitation current tests
  • Turns ratio tests (TTR)
