Substation Maintenance II Course Outline
Substation Maintenance II is a key part of any plant’s maintenance program. Key component failure such as racking mechanisms, meters, relays and buses are the most common cause of unplanned outages. Power transformer failures may result in significant downtime and long delays in equipment replacement. Most of these failures can be detected and prevented.
- Identify safe work procedures
- Explain the configuration and function of common equipment found in a substation
- Identify components of power and distribution type transformers, including common insulating and cooling mediums
- Explain common transformer configurations
- Perform and interpret results of winding resistance, dielectric absorption ratio, polarization index, and power/dissipation factor tests on transformers
- Calculate temperature corrections
- Identify ASTM requirements for testing and sampling gas and oil in transformers
- Inspect, adjust and perform insulation resistance, connection resistance and over-potential tests on air and disconnect switches
- Perform and interpret results of earth resistivity tests
