LTC Courses

Load Tap Changer Maintenance Training Courses

Customer receiving Load Tap Changer TrainingWe understand that many electric utilities have lost a significant amount of in-house expertise on equipment maintenance through attrition and consolidation. In response to this industry need, SPX Waukesha developed a series of model-specific LTC maintenance training courses to teach knowledge and product-specific skills to help maintenance personnel accurately troubleshoot and repair LTC equipment.

Our comprehensive courses teach the unwritten knowledge and skills that can only be attained through years of hands-on experience. These classes run full circle to target critical skill sets that substation engineers, field crews and apprentices need to be effective—from LTC operational theory and recommended maintenance practices to model-specific maintenance inspection, contact replacement and calibration, assembly techniques and OEM design changes.
