OPS Workshop

We’ve partnered up – OPS and CWIEME Americas are pleased to invite you to attend the

Basic Principles of Transformer Design Seminar

DESCC, Wednesday 09/18/2019 - 9:00am – 4:30pm

Attend the workshop and during breaks, chat to our exhibitors and network with your peers while coffee and lunch are on us in the CWIEME Americas hall.

Basic Principles of Transformer Design: Derivation & Application of the Equations Used in the Transformer Design Process.

After attending this seminar, you will feel confident to design without any application tools or software programs. This seminar is intended for technical personnel who want to learn and review the basic principles of transformer design, enabling a transition to using the OPS programs more effectively. We will be providing design examples and concepts of transformer design using hand calculations.  

Topics will include in-depth discussions on:

  • Basic Magnetic Relationships
  • Derivation of Basic Design Expressions
  • Equivalent Circuit
  • Core Considerations
  • Size Relationship
  • Design Calculations
  • Effects of Coil Cooling Ducts

Who should attend?

  • Engineers looking to familiarize designing transformers by using hand calculations
  • New OPS software users and engineers who will be using OPS in the future
