Power Transformer Basics


Power transformers are critical for power generation plants, and transmission and distribution substations. They require precise process for the specification, design, construction, testing, shipment, installation and maintenance to ensure proper operation. This transformer training course provides a comprehensive overview of power transformers. It is targeted to those involved in the installation, operation and maintenance of electrical power systems. This is a fundamental course covering power transformer basics, theory, applications, construction, testing, shipment, operation and maintenance. It will provide the greatest possible exposure to power transformer basics that can be achieved in two days. Anyone who specifies or works on or near power generation, transmission, or distribution systems should attend this course.

Course Objective

With an understanding of the process for the specification, design, construction, testing, shipment, installation and maintenance you will be able to make informed decisions about the performance and operation of this critical assets of your system networks.
