While the operating principles of transformers have remained the same for nearly a century, the challenges of maintaining and testing transformers have evolved along with transformer design and construction. Modern transformers are designed to closer tolerances than ever before. Proper testing is essential for evaluating the condition of a transformer. This predictive data will guide maintenance activities and help prevent catastrophic failure that damages downstream equipment and endangers personnel.
• Identify power/instrument and distribution transformer types, components and auxiliary equipment
• Evaluate transformer configuration for the application
• Interpret nameplate data
• Perform and evaluate the results of insulation resistance, winding resistance, turns ratio, core excitation and power factor tests of windings, bushings and liquid insulation
• Utilize a frequency response analyzer to identify damage
• Calculate polarization index and temperature corrections
• Perform oil sampling, testing, drying, filling and filtering
• Explain gas sampling and testing
• Combine test results to troubleshoot transformer problems
Who Should Attend
This hands-on course is intended for new or experienced electricians and technicians that install, maintain, repair or troubleshoot power transformers rated 765 kV or less used in utility and industrial applications.
The student should have basic knowledge of AC/DC electricity. Students must wear long pants and safety toe shoes to complete the lab portion of this course.
