Power transformers are vital components of the power supply infrastructure. Their reliability, availability, life cycle cost and residual life expectancy depend to a significant extent on how they are designed, built, operated and maintained. This course will help participants understand the basic principles of power transformers and the associated utilization issues.

Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to discuss your questions with internationally reputed transformer experts, exchange experiences and practical examples with fellow participants, and visit the KEMA High Power and High Voltages laboratories of DNV GL.


  • Understanding of how transformers are designed, constructed, protected and operated
  • Knowledge of how to specify and assure the quality of transformers
  • Insight into transformer maintenance, condition assessment and lifetime estimation

For more information please refer to the leaflet and registration form.
