Sd Myers Course 2010


This course focuses on maintenance of the insulating system in fluid filled transformers. It provides a foundation for intelligent transformer management, from the basic design and construction to life expectancy and extension.


Anyone who is responsible for the maintenance of liquid filled transformers including: electrical technicians and engineers, maintenance managers, engineering management, electrical contractors and service companies.

Class Objectives

  • Be able to identify transformer design, construction and materials including the core, windings and insulating system
  • Be able to identify the purpose of mineral oil dielectric fluids and other electric insulating fluids
  • Learn to identify analytical tests for electrical insulating fluids and be able to compare analytical test results to industry standards for new and in-service electrical insulating fluids
  • Be able to identify conditions that cause accelerated aging and/or premature transformer failure
  • Be able to identify qualitative and quantitative methods for interpretation of dissolved gas analysis of electrical insulating fluid
  • Learn the purpose of factory and field electrical tests
  • Learn practical maintenance procedures that will extend the life of a transformer and develop an intelligent transformer maintenance plan
