One-Day Course – Tullow – Condition Monitoring High-Voltage Transformer Assets Through Oil Analysis

Presented By: Kevin Deville, Transformer Condition Monitoring, Laborelec
Location: Tullow, Co. Carlow, Ireland

Condition monitoring through oil analysis is key to maximising the lifetime, reliability and availability of transformer assets. Oil analysis provides critical information about the condition and remaining lifetime of the transformer oil and insulating paper as well as an early warning of internal transformer problems.

Recognising this, T.E.Laboratories (TelLab) has teamed up with Laborelec in Belgium to bring world-leading training in this area to Ireland.

Our one-day Transformer Oil Analysis Training Course will enable you to:

– Define and implement a programme of oil analysis to monitor the condition of transformers.

– Understand and interpret oil analysis reports and implement maintenance recommendations.

Content of the training

The training starts with a half-day theoretical session addressing various aspects of transformer condition assessment:

– Why perform transformer oil analyses?

– What are the main oil and paper degradation mechanisms?

– Which analyses apply to which types of transformers?

– Why perform different kind of analyses at different frequency?

– What is the best frequency for conducting the analyses?

– How should the test results be interpreted: trending, comparison with international standards, etc?

– How can the results be used to create and implement a maintenance action plan?

In the afternoon, there will be a visit to our oil analysis laboratory here at TelLab. In addition, we will work through a number of case studies to highlight the interpretation of results and formulation of recommendations. TelLab is an Engineers Ireland approved training provider, and this course qualifies for over 7 CPD hours.
