Advanced Transformer Maintenance and Testing (ATMT)

Advanced Transformer Maintenance and Testing

COURSE OVERVIEW

Power and Instrument Transformers are critical and expensive components of the electric energy system, maintaining safe and reliable operation is essential. Technology has made the fundamental principles of energy transfer a complex set of mathematical algorithms used to improve the four main areas of a transformer’s design: mechanical, electro-magnetic, dielectric and thermal.
