Powell Industries is hosting a Doble Protection Course at their facility in Houston.
The Transformer Protection – Theory, Application, Setting Guidelines, and Testing Demonstration course is intended for both engineers and technicians involved with application of transformer protection relays that are used to protect an extremely valuable asset.
Transformer protection and differential protection in particular is complicated due to different voltage levels and angular shifts of voltage and currents when dealing with delta-wye transformers. The differential protection applied at transformers must also be able to correctly differentiate between transformer inrush and an actual internal fault.
This course is unique; both theory and testing is combined to provide the students with a complete picture. Engineers can benefit not only from the theory aspect but will see how various elements are tested and can be tied back to the theory. Technicians will learn the theory behind what is being tested and will receive a test plan which they can run using Protection Suite.
