Transformer 360

The aging of existing transformers and the changes in modern transformer design are two of the challenges currently facing maintenance professionals. The Transformer 360 Course was developed to help equip the next generation of professionals to competently meet those challenges. Configured for flexibility, this course is divided into three one-day segments that may be taken as a whole or separated according to individual need.

TRANSFORMER 360 (Earn 0.8 CEU, 8 PDH credits each day)

Half-Century Transformer: Re-Energized! (Day One)

This one-day review course takes a new and updated look at the latest standards and best practices in transformer reliability. It covers the fundamentals of transformer oil sampling, testing, analytics and diagnostics. This course provides a solid introduction to transformer maintenance and is also a good review for anyone previously trained.

Risk & Reliability Fundamentals (Day Two AM)

This segment provides the foundation for moving from a testing and maintenance strategy to a reliability strategy. It includes helpful information from the insurance industry and reliability best-practice tools.

Dissolved Gas Analysis Fundamentals (Day Two PM)

This segment is an intensive look at DGA, one of the primary tools for monitoring the health of your transformer. The emphasis is on the changing technology itself and on understanding and using the data generated to make wise, practical decisions.

Load Tap Changer Fundamentals (Day Three AM)

This segment underscores the oft-neglected importance of testing and maintaining LTCs. Our experience has shown that many otherwise well-trained professionals benefit greatly from this training module.

Electrical Testing Fundamentals (Day Three PM)

This segment is dedicated to the important role of electrical testing in pursuit of an in-depth transformer condition assessment. The session also provides an examination of more advanced testing and maintenance strategies.

Advanced Transformer Maintenance and Planning

After a brief review, this course builds on the foundational concepts taught in the Half Century Transformer - Applied Maintenance (and The Half Century Transformer Course). Students will dive deeper into the concepts of reactive, predictive, and preventative maintenance of transformers and be able to develop a cost-effective testing and maintenance plan to prolong the reliable life of their transformers.

This course will get the student familiar with the substation and system equipment, as well as additional understanding of transformer design and construction. This course provides the advanced knowledge and develops the skills to identify and analyze / interpret chemical test results, identify maintenance recommendations based on chemical and electrical tests, manage service specifications, and make critical maintenance / planning decisions. We further build and work on the application of this advanced education through practical exercise, interactive activities, etc. thus increasing the learning retention, applicability of concepts and overall experience.
