Mr. Ronnie Minhaz of Transformer Consulting Services Inc.


Quality Assurance of Power Transformers

Abstract - The manufacturing of Power Transformers is integrated into a global supply chain. With the advancement of technology, the design and manufacturing of Power Transformers is getting more aggressive, in terms of reducing clearance and use of pure mineral oil during Factory Acceptance Test to ensure the passing of tests. Temperature, moisture, and dust-controlled clean room and environmental conditions can be compromised during the manufacturing process, which can have impact on the life expectancy of transformers. This presentation will walk the attendees through the Quality Assurance of transformers during their manufacturing process. The principles of Quality Assurance of Power Transformers are also applicable to other electrical components and equipment. This webinar can, therefore, be of interest to electrical engineers and students of various profiles.
