Maintenance Planning (Intermediate)

The Maintenance Planning track includes a review of the transformer’s role in electrical transmission and distribution, the design and construction of transformers, the function of solid and liquid insulation, and the basics of testing and maintenance. Building upon this foundation, participants will learn the distinction between predictive, preventative, and reactive maintenance, and the process by which a transformer ages (and how that process can be slowed). In addition to this conceptual approach, participants will also learn the functions of chemical, mechanical, and electrical procedures and the tenets of equipment condition assessments.

Participants moving through to the advanced class will learn the essentials of how to interpret Dissolved Gas Analysis results, explore more complex transformer components such as Load Tap Changers, and choose from a wide range of elective specialty classes.
