Instrument Transformer Testing Workshop Hosted by Southern California Edison @ Southern California Edison Westminster Combined Facilities
Apr 5 @ 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM

OMICRON will conduct an all day workshop in SCE, Westminster office on “Field testing of Relaying Current Transformers IEEE C57.13.1-2006”,  Cost $150

RSVP by March 22nd

Instrument Transformer Testing Workshop
Hosted by Southern California Edison | April 5, 2017

Instrument transformers are crucial for a reliable and safe energy supply. During the lifetime of instrument transformers, a number of internal and external factors may change the operational behavior and endangers a safe and reliable mains operation. In the worst case, the instrument transformer may fail in operation or a malfunction might occur. Applying effective measurement methods to Instrument Transformers, production processes, commissioning and maintenance of ITs can be improved.

Southern California Edison will host an OMICRON workshop on April 5, 2017. The workshop will provide you with a primer on instrument transformers design and testing, including a comparison of conventional methods versus innovative test methods.

Come learn how to use the current method as recommended by the IEEE Guide for Field Testing of Relaying Current Transformers IEEE C57.13.1-2006
