10:30-10:45am Break 10:30-10:45am Break
10:45am-11:45

Partial Discharge- What is all the Buzz About?  New technology allows Utilities to Detect the Early Stages of Partial Discharge in transformers and generators

Presented by OMICRON

10:45am-11:45am
Transformer Pumps -Best maintenance practices. 


Presented by Unifin

Noon-1:00pm-
LUNCH Provided by PEAK Measure
 

1:00pm-2:00pm
Paralleling Transformers- It’s not easy to predict how currents and voltages will change during switching operations when transformers are paralleled or separated.  This presentation describes the factors affecting currents and voltages observed before & after switching transformers in parallel, and introduces a tool that predicts how current and voltage will change as a result of switching operations.

Presented by Steve Larson, Snohomish County PUD 
 

1:00pm-2:00pm
Transformer Coolers - Best maintenance practices. 


Presented by Unifin

2:00-2:15 pm Break  

2:15-3:15 pm
On-Line Bushing Monitoring-Identify bushing and transformer insulation defects before they cause transformer failures. Followed by a discussion on localizing these defects on-line using acoustic partial discharge localization.

 Presented by OMICRON

2:00pm-3:00pm
SFRA-Sweep Frequency Analysis
