Frameworks

Goals

The course begins with a half-day theoretical session addressing various aspects of transformer condition assessment.
In addition, specific case studies are discussed to train in interpreting results and formulating recommendations.

Program

The course addresses various aspects of transformer condition assessment:

  • Transformer Health Index, Transformer Fleet Condition Assessment, Risk Matrix
  • Why perform transformer oil analyses?
  • What are the main oil and paper degradation mechanisms?
  • Which analyses apply to which types of transformers?
  • Why perform different kinds of analyses at different frequencies?
  • What is the best frequency for conducting analyses?
  • How to interpret test results: trending, comparison with international standards, etc.
  • Why and when to perform electrical measurements?
  • How to use the analysis results to create and implement a maintenance action plan.

In addition, specific case studies are discussed to train in interpreting results and formulating recommendations.

Target Audience

Maintenance staff, electrical engineers and asset managers responsible for transformers. Typical industries are powerplants, high voltage grids or large industrial sites.

Practical Info

Please note that the mentioned dates are subject to change if the required number of participants is not met. If interested in the training courses but the proposed dates do not suit your schedule and would like to be enrolled on a waiting list, or if you would like a dedicated session for your team (on-demand), please get in contact at laborelecacademy@engie.com.

When organizing a hybrid delivery session, the training course will have attendees joining a live-classroom session (hosted at our offices in Linkebeek, Belgium, assuring the necessary health & safety measures) and attendees joining the same session but in a remote live-online manner.

For attendees joining a live-classroom session at our location, an extra fee of 60 EUR/training day will be added, covering the catering aspects of the training delivery.
