Bijan Ghayour, PE
This 6-hour course is intended to establish recommended practice as well as to give general advice and guidance in testing and diagnostics of oil-filled power transformers to establish their condition, identify problems, and provide potential remedies. This course applies to oil-filled power transformers (500 kVA and larger).
Guidance and recommendations herein are based on industry standards and experience in existing facilities. However, equipment and situations vary greatly, and sound engineering and management judgment must be exercised when applying these diagnostics. All available information must be considered (e.g., manufacturer’s and transformer experts’ recommendations, unusual operating conditions, personal experience with the equipment, etc.) in conjunction with this course.
The course materials are based entirely on the Unified States Department of the Interior, Facilities Instructions, Standards, and Techniques Volume 3-31.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
