PNW Seminar Series presented by OMICRON: Transformer Diagnostics and Protection Testing

September 18 @ 8:00 am - September 20 @ 3:30 pm

Co-sponsored by: PES, IAS, and ASHRAE

Abstract:
OMICRON’s transformer diagnostic testing seminar is designed to provide the essential information needed to “assess” the condition of your power transformer assets. Participants will learn power transformer theory, test methods, and data analysis strategies, which includes the most up to date techniques and practices that can be applied to power transformers. All subjects presented are adequate for all levels of expertise, and all examples are derived directly from field experience. The seminar will also introduce participants to the function and operation of the OMICRON TESTRANO 600 3-phase test system.

OMICRON’s protection testing seminar will cover the spectrum of relay testing; from basic commissioning tasks such as wiring checks and burden measurements to innovative relay-as-a “black box” system testing. Also covered with be PRC-005 compliance in the context of system safety and reliability, distribution automation scheme and traveling wave relay testing. Participants with be introduced to OMICRON’s method of creating automated test plans and library of relay-specific test plans.

Speakers:
Charles Sweetser: Engineering Services Manager, OMICRON – Transformer Diagnostics
Scott Cooper: Application and Training Engineer, OMICRON – Protection Testing

Non-IEEE PES members and students are welcome to attend.

Registration Fee: $195 for one day or $395 for both days
