Transformer Diagnostic Workshop - Houston

June 4 - 5, 2019




Power Transformers are the heart of a utility’s substation and one of its most expensive and important assets.

OMICRON’s Transformer Workshop is designed to provide you the essential information needed to understand and determine the condition of your transformer assets. Participants will learn transformer theory, diagnostic test methods, and data analysis strategies. The unique format of this workshop will be taught next to an indoor substation so participants can see and learn about actual assets.
