Power Transformers Training

A Comprehensive and Practical Training on Transformer Maintenance, Life Management, and Life Extension Strategies.



    In-House sessions are available upon request.


    Course Overview:

    In current ever-growing industry, it has been reported that there is increasing trend in transformer breakdown since 1990s. Such a breakdown can potentially cause high amount of loss for different industries. Thus, appropriate implementation of transformer life management is of great concern in current state. Whether the transformer has been in operation for long period or is newly operating, urgent actions are required to optimize transformer performance through higher availability.

    This 3-days program aims to provide a thorough understanding of transformer life management and life extension strategies. Understanding of transformer characterization and working principle will be the essential foundation before proceeding with development of management strategies. Overview of transformer design and mechanical construction will also be presented to give comprehensive representation of transformer’s features.

    Following that, various implementations of new diagnostic techniques will be presented. Systematic and detailed studies on each diagnostic technique along with appropriate interpretation of these studies will lead to early detection of transformer failure. Subsequently, a certain degree of preventive actions can be implemented for such condition.



    What You Will Learn:

    • UNDERSTAND characterization of transformer, including its working principle
    • IMPLEMENT appropriate diagnostic techniques for timely condition assessment of transformer
    • LEARN new Corrosive Sulphur (Cu2S) analysis for transformer condition assessment
    • IDENTIFY aging behaviour of transformer and PREVENT early transformer failure
    • DEVELOP appropriate maintenance strategies for specific type of transformer
    • ENHANCE reliability and safety of transformer operation
    • OPTIMIZE transformer and asset exploitation
    • IMPROVE life extension strategies and treatment ageing of transformer


    Who Should Attend:

    This program is specially designed for those who are involved in developing and implementing life maintenance strategies of transformers in their plant. These include:

    • Maintenance Managers/ Supervisors/ Engineers
    • Facilities Managers/ Supervisors/ Engineers
    • Utility Managers/ Supervisors/ Engineers

In our capacity as consulting company and pioneer in all aspects of transformer life time cycle assessment, we offer the following range of services: DTC offers you OEM independent counselling services. DTC offers you counseling services, result open, not pre-determined solution oriented. DTC offers you counseling services with a special view to achieving customer expectations. DTC puts the whole of its experience at your service. DTC shares decades of know-how. DTC acts as your technical "advocate". DTC is established internationally. M.Sc.(EE) Georg Daemisch has been working in the transformers sector for more than 30 years. After working for several renowned manufacturers on generally international missions, he decided in the 90s of the previous century to pioneer the field of overaged transformers. Based on the general problem of moisture-logging in overaged oil-cellulose systems, he was instrumental in developing an understanding of the entire complex ageing process of these systems and for continuing the development towards a holistic population management. The experience gained from these projects are continuously added to the overall expertise and developed further for the customer's benefit.
