Desktop Transformer Simulator
Utility Solutions Inc. has a new three-phase distribution simulator specifically designed to teach transformer banking to lineworkers. The updated Load-Trainer II Transformer Simulator combines a physical wiring environment with powerful computer simulation. The new one-piece design is very portable and weighs just 16 pounds. Several new features came directly from training professionals who use the Load-Trainer in their classrooms.
While most houses receive electricity from a single transformer, larger facilities use three-phase power, which requires banking multiple transformers. Lineworkers must have specialized training in order to build and maintain transformer banks on today's modern power grid.
The new Load-Trainer II allows an instructor to control each of the three transformer simulators via a 7-inch touchscreen or by using the wireless mouse, which comes standard.
Another feature of the Load-Trainer II is the HDMI connection, allowing a projector or big screen to display demonstrations to a whole classroom.
Utility Solutions Inc. is targeting lineworker schools, utilities and contractors that service overhead distribution systems. Demo units currently are traveling throughout the U.S. and Canada.
