Over 30 years of IRT on substation components and oil filled power transformers will be presented in an easy-to-follow format. The presenter – Mr. Jon Giesecke – is a level III Infrared thermographer who has dedicated 57 years to learning about all forms of diagnostic tools and is ready to provide you and your team with his advanced knowledge.

In this e-lesson you will learn how to diagnose many substation components and transformer problems using infrared thermography. You will also learn tips and tricks to doing a quality examination that can only be obtained by over 30 years’ experience.  Most of what will be presented is not found in any textbooks, so the value added by spending an hour with the author is priceless.  There will be a Q&A session directly following the presentation.
