Following the launch of training courses in its new purpose designed training centre at its Dover site, Megger has announced a third opportunity to learn about Power Transformer Testing Techniques.

The next two-day course is being held on Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th November 2013. The course has been formulated by and will be presented by testing experts from Megger who have wide experience in transformer working. It is suitable for all those who work with HV/MV and LV power transformers, the only prerequisite for those attending being a working knowledge of industrial electrical safe systems of work.

In order to provide the delegates with the greatest possible insight into transformer testing and also give them the confidence to perform tests in the field, the course includes a high proportion of hands-on work using the training centre’s transformers and an extensive array of latest transformer test instruments.

Megger’s power transformer training course will discuss the most important methods used for measuring key transformer parameters, examine practical aspects of the operation and testing of distribution transformers, and explain how to interpret various test results obtained.

Topics covered in detail during the course include transformer operation and the theory of testing, safety requirements, ratio testing on voltage and current transformers, winding resistance testing, magnetisation tests, Class X current transformers and the importance of spill current testing, also the application of insulation resistance and high potential testing, and working with software to maximise the amount of useful information that can be extracted from the test results.

Priced at £650, the course includes comprehensive documentation, including a certificate of completion, and also refreshments and lunches on both days. Overnight accommodation is not included, but those attending will receive an information pack from Megger, which includes details of hotels and other local accommodation.

Those interested in attending should request a booking form as soon as possible by calling the Megger UK training hotline on 01304 502 101 or by sending an email to uktraining@megger.com. Bookings will be dealt with strictly on a first come, first served basis.
