Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose This Training Course?

This Transformer Testing and Analysis training course will present a comprehensive capsule of all the knowledge essential for the medium voltage and high voltage power transformers. The training course focuses mainly on the maintenance, testing and analysis of power transformers. In the oil filled transformer the insulating medium oil has to be carefully maintained, tested and analysed. Regeneration oil and filtering of the oils is now visible in transmission power transformers. The efficient maintenance strategies upon the power transformer extend the life of the transformer particularly by conditioned base maintenance in compliance with IEC Standards.

This training course will feature:

  • Understanding the characteristics of the transformer oil
  • Transformer cooling methods
  • Transformer routine tests
  • Maintenance of transformer
  • On line monitoring for power transformers
