Transformers - Condition Assessment with a special focus on Bushings

CIGRE Australia is proud to present another Transformer Workshop.  

This year the workshop will consider Transformer Condition assessment with a focus on Bushings.

We will again be aiming to maximise delegate involvement and opportunity for interaction.  The workshop has several key speakers and topics lined up including a Tutorial presentation by John Brown - member of WG A2.43  and Peter Cole, Convenor of Working Group A2.49.   Both John and Peter will present a CIGRE Tutorial on the work and outcomes of their groups which led to the development of the respective CIGRE Brochures.

This one day workshop will precede the very popular TECHCON Aus/NZ 2018 conference and will be presented as a technical and commercially focused interactive workshop format aimed at involving the audience in discussion and debate.

What's on Offer ?

The format will see a number of experts present views and case studies from their experience and industry involvement including two CIGRE Tutorial presentations 

The topics and issues covered in the Tutorials and morning presentations, will be discussed and further debated at the open forum panel session in the afternoon.

Who Should Attend

Anybody interested and involved in  Transformer condition monitoring and assessment whether they be involved in design, procurement, commercial or operation will find this workshop of value.
