Single-Phase Transformers, Regulators and Capacitors

EPP226 - 24.00 Hours

Description

Single Phase Transformer Regulator and CapacitorThe Single-Phase Transformers, Regulators, and Capacitors course provides participants with information and training specific to the principles, theory, design, construction, and operation of single-phase transformers, voltage regulators, and capacitors. During training, students conduct testing of connections using specialized equipment and perform hands-on problem-solving exercises during assigned scenarios. At the completion of the course, participants will be able to calculate fuse sizes and lightning arrester protection for transformers and capacitors, establish proper single-phase connections, identify proper regulator and capacitor applications, and test control settings and switching procedures while applying associated safety rules.

This course can be scheduled to meet your specific needs. For more information about this course or to schedule a class for your organization, please contact Infrastructure Training & Safety Institute

Prerequisites

TEEX Certification/Licensing Requirement

Participants must provide evidence of completion of the TEEX Electric Power Principles (EPP009) course or equivalent training verified by their current employer through a completed Student Qualification Form. This prerequisite may be accomplished by uploading a copy of the documents during registration using the TEEX Student Portal. Once received and approved, the participant will be notified by email they have met all prerequisites and have been added to the class roster. All documentation is due at least 14 business days prior to the start of class.

Course Completion Requirements

Student Must Provide

  • Hard hat
  • Rubber gloves (Class 0)
  • Safety glasses
  • Basic function calculator

Attendance Requirements

Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
