Training Substation Switchgear Maintenance Transformer Course

Substation Switchgear Maintenance Training Course Transformer

About The Transformer Maintenance Training Course

Our electrical systems operate at many different voltages, and transformers are the key. They allow us to step voltage up or down as needed to ensure that our equipment has the voltage it needs to operate efficiently. When a transformer fails, that part of the system goes down with it. You can help keep these important (and often expensive) items working at peak efficiency and maximum reliability if you perform regular maintenance on them properly.

Who Should Attend This Training?

Electricians, electrical technicians, supervisors, managers and engineers who work on or are responsible for maintaining transformers in electric power generating stations, substations and commercial distribution systems.

What Will You Learn In This Course?

You'll be able to:

  • Explain transformer construction and operation
  • Read and interpret nameplate data
  • Perform visual and mechanical checks and inspections on transformers
  • Identify common transformer oil tests
  • Perform electrical tests such as insulation resistance, winding resistance, turns ratio, excitation and power factor tests on transformers and bushings
  • Interpret test results using NETA and IEEE guidelines

Course Duration: 2 Days
Course Code: XFMR

Class times are from 8 AM to 4 PM. All students must wear closed-toed shoes and long pants in the shop and lab areas. Safety glasses will be provided.
