Portage, Michigan (PRWEB) February 10, 2015
Some of the nation’s leading electrical power system experts will converge on Nashville, March 2-6, 2015 for five full days of high-powered learning, including three days of seminars that allow attendees into delve deeply into today’s trending topics. Hosted by NETA (International Electrical Testing Association) but open to all, PowerTest 2015’s first two days of technical sessions are followed by 12 in-depth seminars on Wednesday and Thursday, and the first-ever Doble Laboratory Seminar on Friday.
With over 45 technical presentations, educational sessions, and special events, PowerTest 2015 is the most effective and efficient way for electrical power system experts to get updated on the latest industry information and technologies. The seminars portion of the event is particularly popular because of the amount of time and detail the subject matter experts offer in their presentations, as well as the question and answer portion at the end of each session. Additionally, NETA Certified Technicians can earn up to four CTD credits per seminar attended on Wednesday and Thursday — an opportunity to earn up to 16 CTD credits for enrolling in two seminars per day.
Wednesday and Thursday seminars help attendees expand their knowledge through four-hour sessions on everything from electrical commissioning, protective relays, and high-voltage circuit breakers to study sessions for those pursuing certification as an electrical testing technician.
**NEW! The Doble Laboratory Seminar**
The Doble Laboratory Seminar on Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., hosted by NETA Corporate Alliance Partner Doble Engineering, is designed for engineers, chemists, and others responsible for interpreting laboratory results to detect and identify problems within electrical apparatus. A new addition to PowerTest 2015, this interactive laboratory seminar combines theoretical background with practical experience, including case studies that illustrate common problems found in the field.

- Learn about the quality of oils on the market today
- Discover how understanding the aging characteristics of insulating materials can help extend transformer life
- Learn how to take oil samples, avoid common pitfalls, and save time and money by sampling only once
- Diagnose apparatus problems with dissolved gas-in-oil analysis
- Find out how to assess the condition of paper insulation
- Detect the presence of incipient-fault conditions and categorize them
