Advanced Transformer Maintenance and Testing (ATMT) | NEW COURSE
4.5-Day | 3.6 CEUs | $2,055 | Hands-on | Course #149 | 8 am-4:30 pm (final day ends at noon)
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.
Prerequisite: Before attending the Advanced Transformer Maintenance and Testing training course, it is recommended the attendee has:
- Already completed the basic Transformer Maintenance and Testing training course
- Previous knowledge of transformer components and is familiar with the operation of transformers in the field
- Familiarity with the basic safety requirements needed to perform low voltage and high voltage testing as well as low current and high current testing on power transformers
- Familiarity with different types of transformers and their application in the field
- Familiarity with fundamental transformer testing and recognizes the limits of acceptance of each test
- Familiarity with test templates and recommended testing sequences for each component of the transformer
- Gain knowledge about transformers and apply information obtained
- Theoretical and practical training on testing power and instrument transformers
- Provide conceptual knowledge of the latest revisions of national and international standards, related to testing and diagnostics of power and instrument transformers
- Ability to generate a testing plan based on availability of instrumentation
- Evaluate the electromechanical condition of the transformer based on fundamental testing practices supported by advanced diagnostics techniques
- Evaluate the condition of the insulation system of the transformer based on fundamental dielectric testing practices and advanced diagnostics techniques
- Understand the effect of moisture in insulation
- Determining the most practical, efficient, and cost effective method to extract the moisture from the insulation system
- Perform advanced diagnostics, repair or return to operation of tested units
- Estimating “loss of life” of power transformers
- Understanding of the aging process of transformers, including recommendations to scrap, replace or declare end of service of a unit
Students must wear long pants and safety toe shoes to complete the lab portion of this course.
