This interactive 3-day seminar combines theoretical background with practical field experience to provide engineers and technicians with the vital knowledge for off-line and in-service electrical testing of generators. For each test, there will be an in-depth discussion of each measurement, physics behind the measurement,setup and test methodology and acceptance criteria. Learn from Doble’s collection experience from testing 1,000’s of rotating machines worldwide.
Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
- Understand when to perform various off-line and in-service electrical tests.
- Establish benchmark results to significantly increase diagnostic value of future tests.
- Interpret test results, case studies and numerous field examples.
- Improve asset management through accurate electrical asset condition assessment.
- Manage critical asset risk by learning to detect faults early.
Electrical engineers and technicians working in operations, maintenance, engineering, or other service field in which knowledge of electrical generator and motor testing methods and evaluation is required part ofjob responsibility.
