Course Description

Ever wondered:
-How does an electrical transformer work?
- How does a Buchholz relay work?
- How does a silica gel breather work?
- What does ONAN mean?

This course will help you answer these questions...and many more!

The course is designed to take you from zero to hero concerning electrical transformer knowledge. Even if you already have some background knowledge, this course will serve as an efficient refresher, whatever your level of understanding, or engineering background (HVAC, power engineering, oil and gas, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering etc.).

Interactive 3D models are used extensively to show you exactly how a transformer and its components work.

The course is packed with images, 2D animations, interactive 3D models and 3D animations and high quality written content. Written content has been read aloud so that you can 'learn on the go' without needing to watch the screen constantly.
