Interactive seminar combines theory and interactive training to deliver a full day of education and professional development on March 3, 2017.

The Doble Laboratory Seminar is an opportunity for engineers, chemists, and others responsible for laboratory data to get a full day of hands-on training during PowerTest 2017, which is scheduled for February 27-March 3, 2017 at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, California. Hosted by NETA — InterNational Electrical Testing Association, PowerTest 2017 is a technical conference on electrical power systems commissioning, acceptance and maintenance testing, and safety, featuring more than 40 educational sessions.

Scheduled for March 3, 2017, the Doble Laboratory Seminar caps off the week-long conference and requires a separate registration of $445. Early Bird registration discounts for PowerTest 2017 end on January 14, 2017.

The premier electrical maintenance and safety event features five days of learning and networking. Monday and Tuesday’s lineup includes 27 unique electrical maintenance and safety presentations and four panel discussions. Wednesday and Thursday attract technicians, engineers, and facility-substation managers to 12 in-depth seminars. Friday’s Doble Laboratory Seminar focuses on those reviewing data to interpret laboratory results to detect and identify problems within electric apparatus.

The Doble Laboratory Seminar will be interactive, combining theoretical background with practical experience and hands-on examples including case studies illustrating common problems found in the field.

The seminar will cover how to:

  • Use knowledge of the aging characteristics of insulating materials to extend transformer life
  • Take oil samples, avoid common pitfalls, and save time and money by sampling only once
  • Diagnose apparatus problems with dissolved gas-in-oil analysis
  • Assess the condition of paper insulation
  • Detect the presence of incipient fault conditions and categorize them
  • Establish the correct method of analyzing moisture-in-oil results
  • Study the significance of dissolved and particulate metals and other particle contamination found in electrical apparatus
  • Determine the condition of electric apparatus using laboratory tests
