Adequate Transformer Reserves
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses large power transformers, presents their different challenges, and provides various plans and recommendations on how to resolve them.


Large power transformers (LPT) serve as a key function to electricity grid infrastructure by managing voltage for efficient, long-distance power transmission and use by grid customers. Electric utilities and the U.S. Department of Energy face several challenges in ensuring that LPTs, both in use and in reserve, are available in adequate numbers to maintain a resilient electricity grid.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to electrical engineers and other technical staff who are interested in gaining a better understanding of the challenges facing large power transformers.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with LPTs and their function in the electric grid system
  • Exploring the challenges of LPT manufacturing
  • Understanding the challenges to ensure adequate transformer reserves
  • Learning the various plans and recommendations presented to maintain LPTs
