Bijan Ghayour, PE
This 6-hour course outlines basic considerations and requirements for fire protection of large, mineral-oil filled power transformers. This course also offers guidance for establishing the need for the fire protection systems for smaller transformers where the risk and/or consequences of fire to other equipment and structure are unacceptable.
In addition to the primary issues of fire protection other considerations such as effective oil and water containment systems and the environmental impacts of dealing with large amounts of contaminated water is discussed.
The course materials are based entirely on the Unified States Department of the Interior, Facilities Instructions, Standards, and Techniques Volume 3-32.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
