Basic Single-Phase Transformer Connection and Theory

We are pleased to announce Scott Meinecke will be back to instruct this course. With his lineworker background, Scott has a knack for explaining complicated principals so that they are understandable. Scott has a true passion for the craft and has been instructing on this topic for more than 25 years!

NOTE: Members of MREA need to register on their site directly.

What You Will Learn

The pre-conference is intended to serve as a basic or refresher course on the basics of single-phase transformer connections and theory. The course includes classroom and hands-on instruction on topics such as safe work practices, transformer theory, basic calculations, connections, sizing, and troubleshooting.

Who Should Attend

This course would be helpful for anyone that is involved with the electric line crew—from the apprentice to employees from other departments that may assist as a ground person. This pre-conference course would also be beneficial for the apprentice/journeyman lineworker who desires to strengthen their basic transformer knowledge prior to attending the Three-Phase Transformer Connections course the remainder of the week!
