Course Summary

After a brief review, this course builds on the foundational concepts taught in the Transformer Management 1 Plus (and Transformer Management 1 Course). Students will dive deeper into the concepts of reactive, predictive, and preventative maintenance of transformers and be able to develop a cost-effective testing and maintenance plan to prolong the reliable life of their transformers.

This course will get the student familiar with the substation and system equipment, as well as additional understanding of transformer design and construction. This course provides the advanced knowledge and develops the skills to identify and analyze / interpret chemical test results, identify maintenance recommendations based on chemical and electrical tests, manage service specifications, and make critical maintenance / planning decisions. We further build and work on the application of this advanced education through practical exercise, interactive activities, etc. thus increasing the learning retention, applicability of concepts and overall experience.
