POWER TRANSFORMER SEMINAR
NOW, MORE THAN EVER, IT IS IMPORTANT TO MAXIMIZE THE LIFE OF YOUR
TRANSFORMERS AND KEEP THEM IN OPERATION.
The average age of transformers is more than forty years - twice their designed life. The current economic climate and the growing need of more reliable and flexible networks - "Smart Grids" - make it essential not only to maintain current assets and postpone their replacement, but also to assess their reliability. This seminar provides the knowledge to understand equipment conditions and their match with expected normal and extreme service conditions in order to facilitate operational decisions in the shortest time.
It will give attendees a basic understanding of Power Transformer design, manufacture, operation and maintenance from a perspective of maximizing transformer life and availability.
By understanding the insulation system, operations and maintenance personnel can make informed decisions for purchasing, operating, maintaining and replacing power transformers on their system.
International Speakers with Simultaneous English / Spanish Translation will be available.
FLUID DIAGNOSTICS SEMINAR
Gambling with the reliability of your equipment can be very risky business. With substations regularly overloaded and equipment often near the end of its life, electric grid operators are challenged to improve overall system reliability. Without knowing the condition of your critical electrical equipment, making the right decision at the right time is like rolling the dice. When equipment condition is clearly determined, the odds of making a much better decision increase dramatically.
The additional one-day seminar will cover many aspects of Dielectric Fluid Diagnostics and Maintenance. Major topics include the following: Dissolved Gas Analysis,
Insulating Fluid Analyses: Oxidation, Degradation, and Contamination, Dissolved
Gas Analysis of On-Load Tap Changers (OLTC) With Updated Diagnostics
WHO SHOULD ATTEND :
The three-day Power Transformers Seminar is designed for operations and maintenance personnel who have responsibility for purchasing, operating, maintaining and replacing power transformers.
It will focus on maintaining and assessing the integrity of the critical component that dictates the life of a power transformer - the insulation system.
Perspectives of Utilities / Manufacturers / Suppliers will be presented.
