Description

This course is designed to provide delegates a detailed and up-to-date overview of power transformer operation, testing, practical problem and solution. It covers the basic concepts of transformer including the main electric parameters and law, magnetism and laws, magnetism and electromagnetism, Lenz and Faradays Laws, circuits, star and delta connections, theory, the role of transformers in power systems, standards, regulations and voltages as well as the various types and construction of transformers.

The course will also cover the special transformers, transformer components, materials, cooling of transformers, transformer performance, electrical parameters and transformer faults. During the course, participants will be able to employ proper protection, operation and factory acceptance test (FAT), install, test and commission transformer and carryout transformer maintenance, diagnostic analysis, life expectancy and extension.
