Seminar

Understanding Partial Discharge Workshop

3/13/19
1:15PM - 5:00PM
Tom Sandri, Shermco Industries
Description:

Partial discharge testing plays a critical role in determining the health of your electrical assets and ensuring maximum up time. Partial discharge testing provides asset managers with the critical information to target maintenance resources to the areas that require the most attention. As with any diagnostic technology, however, an understanding of the technology and a logical approach to implementation is necessary to render an effective program. How effective is online testing versus offline testing? Are the techniques and strategies the same for all electrical equipment? Combining lecture along with hands-on demonstrations we will break down the available techniques for both online and offline testing. We will compare the effectiveness of each technique based on the equipment being tested, and finally we outline a program for effective predictive maintenance.

Seminar

Interpretation of Power Factor and Excitation Current Test Data

3/13/19
1:15PM - 5:00PM
Keith Hill, Doble Engineering Company
Description:

Once testing is complete the difficult task of interpreting the test data must take place. This seminar will review various case studies for the two winding transformer, three winding transformer, shielded transformer, potential transformers and circuit breakers. Interpretation of C1 and C2 busing tests along with excitation patterns will be covered.

Seminar

Battery Testing and Maintenance

3/13/19
1:15PM - 5:00PM
Volney Naranjo and Dinesh Chhajer, Megger
Description:

The state of health of a battery is of such importance that the procedures to determine if it will perform as expected are regulated and continuously audited. Maintenance requirements are included in the NERC regulations but depending on the type of battery, the procedures differ. It is of high importance for testing professionals to have a comprehensive understanding of the procedures and maintain a continuous training of the personnel to guarantee proper testing practices and documentation of the results.

During the seminar, it will be presented the recommendations and requirements from standards like IEEE, NETA and for the maintenance of VLA, VRLA, and NiCad batteries as well as its periodicity. The activities related to electrical testing will be fully described to explain comprehensive and efficient ways to perform and document each. Ohmic and capacity tests will be covered in detail focusing on best practices and troubleshooting during the test.

This seminar will provide attendees the necessary information to continue improving their battery maintenance and testing knowledge as well as their result analysis abilities.

Seminar

Electrical Safety for the Technician

3/13/19
1:15PM - 5:00PM
Jim White, Shermco Industries Daryld Ray Crow, DRC Consulting Ltd. DaleepMohla, DCM Electrical Consulting Services
Description:

Electrical technicians are often called upon to perform seriously risky tasks any time of the day or night. This seminar talks about what technicians should be doing, or not doing while in the field. Real life examples are used to illustrate the issues involved. Presented by three members of the NFPA 70E committee.
