Overview

This training is the fourth training in the "Transformer Bank Workshop" series. All the courses in this series use full-screen, full-motion video.

It’s difficult to arrange for power outages to service power distribution systems. Your line personnel will be in situations where they have to parallel two transformer banks to transfer load from one bank to the other; avoiding an outage. To parallel banks, line personnel must be able to determine angular displacement and other facts about the bank. They can’t guess! A solid grasp of voltage phasor diagrams will help your workers understand exactly how a bank is connected, or should be connected.

This "near hands-on" training will teach your workers how to form voltage phasor diagrams for the delta and the wye. They will combine their diagrams to represent transformations. They will also use phasor diagrams to document an existing transformer bank and to build a bank. And finally they will learn the rules for paralleling two transformer banks and how to test their connections.

The training uses clear and concise presentations, interactions, and 3D animations to actively involve your workers in the instruction and to clarify sometimes difficult concepts.

This training was produced in collaboration with Otter Tail Power Company and Gordon Solee, PE. The program is based on Mr. Solee’s popular and respected "Transformer Hands-On Workshop".
