Your transformer has been built. Does it meet your specifications? What about the transformer's reliability?

The only way to answer these questions is through rigorous acceptance tests that identify problems before the transformer is delivered.

Anybody can witness tests and sign a test report (and many do it for very low fees). However, simply witnessing acceptance tests is not enough. To successfully spot problems at the test stage, is necessary to:

  • Check how tests are performed.
  • Interpret the test results.
  • Know what to do if something goes wrong.

This means that the person who is attending the tests on your behalf needs to:

  • Be experienced in transformer design and testing.
  • Have a good knowledge of transformer standards.

Therefore, make sure that the person attending the acceptance tests for you has the right experience. Do not stop at company names, ask for the CVs of the people undertaking your project.

If you want more than simple witnessing of tests then please contact us. Our transformer consultants can supervise (not just witness) acceptance tests on your behalf and spot problems before the transformer leaves the factory.
