TRANSFORMER TRAINING

  • Course level: Intermediate

Description

TRANSFORMER TRAINING. Unless you are living ‘off the grid’, you are using electricity from an electrical system that uses a transformer.

TRANSFORMER TRAINING. Power stations use electrical transformers to increase voltage. Sub-stations use electrical transformers to decrease voltage. Even your smartphone and laptop use transformers to charge their batteries. But what are transformers? How do they work? And why do we need them? This course will help you answer all of these questions and many more!

In this course, you will learn:

  1. How electrical transformers work.
  2. How to identify different types of electrical transformers.
  3. The name and function of all of a transformer’s main components.
  4. How Buchholz relays work.
  5. How silica gel breathers work.
  6. The purpose of a conservator tank.
  7. What ONAN means.
  8. Why we need transformers in the electrical grid.
  9. Where transformers are installed in the electrical grid.
  10. And much more!

The course is designed to take you from zero to hero concerning electrical transformer knowledge. Even if you already have some background electrical engineering knowledge, this course will serve as an efficient refresher. Whatever your level of understanding, or engineering background (electrical engineeringmechanical engineeringHVACchemical engineeringoil & gas industrypower engineering, etc.), we can guarantee you will have never taken an engineering course like this one (unless you have taken one of our other courses…).

 

WHO THIS TRANSFORMER TRAINING  COURSE IS FOR:

  1. If you are interested in knowing how electricity reaches your home, are an electrician, a hobby learner, a power engineer, an experienced electrical engineer, or, anywhere in between, this course is for you.
  2. Anyone who is working or training in electrical engineering, industrial engineering, or power engineering

What Will I Learn?

  • Identify different types of electrical transformers.
  • Identify electrical transformer components.
  • Identify electrical transformer protection devices.
  • Know how an electrical transformer works.
  • Know how all of an electrical transformer's components and protection devices work.
  • Know the three main electrical transformers 'killers'.
  • General knowledge concerning electrical engineering and electricity.
