Canadian Transformer Diagnostic Workshop
OMICRON’s transformer training course is designed to provide the essential information needed to test and “assess” the condition of your power transformer assets. Participants will learn power transformer theory, test methods, and data analysis strategies, which includes the most up to date techniques and practices that can be applied to power transformers. All subjects presented are adequate for all levels of expertise, and all examples are derived directly from field experiences. This is a comprehensive one-day training course.
- Understand the most widely used transformer diagnostic tests
- Learn the common types of transformer failure modes
- Learn proper test set up and proper test procedure for performing transformer measurements
- Understand how to interpret and assess the transformer test results
