The Program

Availability of new materials and good workmanship improved operating efficiency and transformer life expectancy, but new transformers are built less robust than before. Their reliability, availability, life cycle cost and residual life expectancy depend to a significant extent on how they are designed, built, operated and maintained. It is critical that all personnel operating and working with such equipment understand the basic principles of power transformers and the associated utilization issues.

Transformer Fest provides a comprehensive insight into main aspects of transformer design, required testing regime and effective maintenance program. It provides very practical guidance for maintenance scheduling, troubleshooting faults and interpreting test results to achieve long service life of power transformers.

Each day we learn something new. Join us for the entire course or choose your favourite subjects:

• TR01 – Transformer construction and design

• TR02 – Transformer specification and purchasing

• TR03 – Transformer condition monitoring

• TR04 – Transformer maintenance and life extension

Create your own program!

This vibrant new approach to training provides maximum flexibility to the delegates. We are not forcing you to buy the entire course and spend extra money to listen to the material you already know.

Choose the topics which will expand your knowledge in the area of your interest, improve your business or further your skill development.


The Fest is organised inside a security estate, providing a peace of mind required to focus on absorbing as much knowledge as you can.

The entrance code and an ID/driver’s license is required to enter the estate.

A modern multimedia classroom allows for limited number of delegates to ensure that all attendees receive personal attention during the course and the interactive workshop.

There is also a garden to accommodate smokers and those who like to relax outside.


Free coffee and tea with a variety of sweets will be served in the morning and afternoon. Free lunch with non alcoholic beverages will be served at noon. All your special dietary requirements will be met.
