LOAD TAP CHANGER (LTC)
We 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, Prolec GE 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.

COURSE STRUCTURE & ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Our instructors can cover up to four LTC courses in one week. Each attendee receives a course manual with easy-to-use field reference guides along with many pages of technical resources. Two instructors teach each course: our in-house LTC specialist and our training development program administrator.
The standard class format is a travel day for attendees on Monday with Tuesday being the first day of the class. Each day of the class will be a full day (8 hrs) in length. The first day of the class will cover the “Theory of Operation” as well as specific information on the models being covered. To be sure participants maximize their experience and hands-on learning, we limit class sizes to 15 students.
Dates are subject to change. Class must be at full capacity or may be cancelled.
