Partial Discharge Course -Toronto, Canada

September 26-28, 2023 Iris Power, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Costs: $1595 USD

The objective of this Partial Discharge Seminar is to understand basic PD theory as well as stator winding insulation systems and why they deteriorate. To learn how PD detection devices work and interpret the test data collected and relate the data to specific failure mechanisms, to enable you to plan stator winding maintenance.

The course is designed for engineering and maintenance personnel who either purchase, install, test, maintain and/or repair motors and/or generators. Consultants, manufacturers and repair shop personnel would also benefit from this course. The course is mainly intended for those involved with motors or generators rated 3kV and above.

Topics covered in this course include:

Motor & Generator Stator Windings

PD Theory

PD Detection

Interpreting Test Results
