Overview

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

This "near hands-on" training uses clear and concise presentations and eighty-seven interactions to convey the knowledge of three-phase transformer bank connections your workers need to build and service a bank.

3-D animations help clarify sometimes difficult concepts. Your workers will actually practice with and test on life-like computer-simulated transformer banks. They will make all transformer bank connections with the mouse or touchscreen.

In this training your line personnel will learn how to make basic transformer bank connections. They’ll also learn when and why they’re used.

The training teaches how transformation is accomplished. Workers will learn to identify the various types of transformers and their main parts. They will also learn how series and parallel connections are used in transformations. Through computer simulation activities, workers will actually make delta and wye connections for the both primary and "Transformer Hands-On Workshop".
