Power Transformer Field Diagnostic testing-

which test needs to be carried out and how do I interpret the results:

  • What are the common field test methods and equipment used in the industry?
  • What do they test and how does one interpret the results.
  • What are the common online and offline tests?
  • Case Studies
  • Insulation, failure modes and test instruments
  • Transformer maladies
  • Insulation resistance and importance of guarding, bushing surface leakage,
  • Winding ratio and resistance methods and pitfalls, what they can’t detect
  • Excitation current, dielectric dissipation factor
  • Partial discharge testing, PD patterns and PD location methods
  • Frequency response analysis, winding deformation detection
  • Paper moisture electrical methods,
  • Thermal imaging
  • Dangers in HV testing and test equipment care
