Doble Life of a Transformer Seminar

February 11-15, 2019
Las Vegas, NV

The World’s Premier Training Experience on the Most Critical Aspects of Large Power Transformers

With an agenda placing emphasis on practical, real-world concerns, this is your opportunity to get answers from top transformer experts to your pressing work questions.

Are you in a new role with expanded transformer life-cycle management responsibilities? Interested in a refresher course on transformer design & manufacturing, factory acceptance testing, field testing and the latest technologies? Looking for strategies to optimize transformer repair, refurbish and replacement while balancing asset health, economic risk, grid reliability, and transformer relay protection? You work with transformers every day, but do you know everything you need to know about transformers?

See why so many people say this seminar is a critical training opportunity for every transformer engineer and new electrical power engineer. Earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) that meet IACET standards.

Testing and Troubleshooting Tools used with Transformer Protection Relays

  • Thursday, February 14, 2019

Various types of digital relays designed for transformer protection offer software that can assist test engineers  and technicians during the testing process. Since mechanical calibration is no longer a concern, our testing focus  is associated with the proper setting and configuration of the protective elements.

In this session, we will:

  1. Review of the protective elements associated transformer protection
  2. Assure proper validation of the transformer configuration
  3. Use the relay software to visualize and validate proper CT secondary wiring
  4. Test the 87 elements
  5. Test the harmonic restraint
  6. Discuss the importance of, and test over excitation protection with the V/Hz element

We will use a Beckwith relay model M‐3311A and related software to assist throughout the testing process, which  can also be associated with other types of transformer protective relays.
