Transformer Management Essentials (formerly Half-Century Transformer)

Since 1975, this course has stood the test of time and has benefited thousands of people who are competent, confident and reliable.

This course provides a foundational understanding of the internal and external elements of the transformer, the essentials of transformer operation and maintenance implementation and related industry standards. It covers the chemical, mechanical and electrical components of the transformer, the purpose and operating characteristics of these components, the significant requirements and methods for maintenance, and the major testing involved in maintenance.

Advanced DGA Diagnostics

Advanced perspective on how dissolved gas analysis (DGA) results are interpreted – an important tool in the overall transformer maintenance program. Includes hands-on break out groups.

This class is intended to identify fault gases and what causes their formation; explain and provide examples of qualitative and quantitative interpretation of dissolved gasses. This class will also evaluate the condition of cellulose insulation and other non-routine tests, examine the role DGA plays in new oil testing and discuss procedures to obtain a representative sample from transformers, and how to mitigate risk.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own transformer data to use as a case study for interpretation of dissolved gases or to help develop a maintenance program.


  • Maintenance and Sampling Oil
  • Introduction to Oil Testing
  • Dissolved Gas Analysis
  • Non-Routine Oil Analysis
  • Group Workshop on DGA Case Studies
Credits: 0.7 CEU, 7 PDH
