This course covers the theory, operation, maintenance and testing of power transformers and auxiliary equipment. Topics included are transformer fundamentals, transformer ratings, transformer cooling, nitrogen gas systems and insulation systems. The course concludes with in-depth discussions on transformer testing techniques.
This course is applicable to technicians and engineers who need a sound understanding of power transformer operation and maintenance. Participants will learn safe and proper maintenance and testing procedures on pad-mounted, power transformers.
The course covers transformers used in commercial and industrial power distribution systems, including oil and dry type units. Larger power transformers used in utility applications are also covered. Load and no-load tap changer maintenance, AC and DC Testing, routine inspections and sampling and testing are covered in detail. Participants will learn how to perform routine oil tests, and understand how to perform the major tests that are required. A variety of electrical test equipment from various manufacturers will be discussed.
