ELECTRICAL TESTING PRINCIPLES (Module 9)  ::  $39.00

Factory, acceptance, and field electrical testing will provide you with valuable information about your transformers condition. The factory tests will verify that the unit was built to the proper specifications.  The acceptance tests will help determine if the unit sustained any damage in transit to the site, and provide a benchmark for future field testing.  Field electrical tests are performed routinely to indicate if the insulation system is showing any signs of deterioration.  Also, it is recommended that the unit be tested after a fault to indicate if the unit suffered any damage.  This course will familiarize you with the testing required. (41 minutes)

Course Outline:

  • Factory Electrical testing
  • Acceptance Electrical Testing
  • Routine and Diagnostic Field Electrical Testing

INTERPRETING OIL TEST RESULTS (Module 10)  ::  $39.00

This course explains and shows the permanent damage to insulating paper caused by oil degradation, and therefore, the need for an overall oil testing program to understand the condition of the transformer. Building from the test result data, we will then explain the oil test result classifications and recommendations leading to the proper predictive and preventive maintenance services to extend the reliable and cost effective life of the transformer. (35 minutes)

Course Outline:

  • Oil and Paper Aging
  • Criteria for Interpreting Oil Test Analysis
