Transformer Maintenance and Testing

COURSE OVERVIEW

Students learn instruction to install, maintain, repair or troubleshoot power transformers rated 765 kV or less. Participants will receive instruction on the filtering and drying out process to be performed on transformers. This course uses up-to-date test equipment and procedures for evaluating the condition of a transformer. Test results can provide predictive data which will guide maintenance activities and help to prevent catastrophic failure that may damage downstream equipment and endanger personnel.
