After a string of storms in the Chattanooga area, the importance of trained technicians in electric power has never been greater. In a partnership with TVA, IEEE and Omicron, the UTC Electrical Engineering Department will host a power transformer diagnostics workshop on June 22 -23 in the Benwood Auditorium in the UTC Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science Building. The event is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is required.
“Participants will be introduced to the most modern and effective test techniques and practices to learn to diagnose basic issues and problems with transformers,” Ulyana Pugina, Project Manager for the UTC Department of Electrical Engineering, said.
The two-day event will include presentations by four instructors bringing different areas of technical expertise. The instructors will share their expertise in the area of diagnostic testing and analysis through presentation of actual field measurement and case studies.
To register for the event, complete the .pdf form and submit it by e-mail. The registration form is designed as a “PDF Form Field” that can be filled out and submitted automatically. A confirmation e-mail will be sent by Omicron when the registration has been received.
The event will also be live streamed on the UTC Electrical Engineering Department’s website, http://www.utc.edu/ee. The live stream will begin at 8 a.m. on June 22.
