6th - 8th September 2021
The Current crisis, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has disrupted the business significantly all across the world. With the pandemic continuing to grow, leading to extended lockdowns, the businesses have witnessed massive disruptions.
In this scenario, Companies are forced to rethink their business strategies and communicate with their employees and customers. While work from home is the new normal, virtual events/conferences are gaining importance and massive traction.
In this endeavor, IEEMA Power Transformer Division has launched an e-TRAFOTECH 2020, the first of its kind of Virtual Conference on TRANSFORMER Technology and Developments, in the country.
Power Transformer Division of IEEMA Conducts TRAFOTECH International Conferences every four years, which discusses the state-of-art of design, latest developments, trends in material, best practices in manufacturing and testing, diagnostics and condition monitoring techniques, etc. In sequence, IEEMA Organises TRAFOTECH Workshops every two years which are conducted in between, with user-centric objectives where topics on areas of proper specification and procurement, design reviews, site maintenance, condition monitoring and diagnostics, condition assessment, refurbishment, residual life assessment, and life extension are deliberated, and case-studies presented.
The Theme: "Transformers-Today and Tomorrow"
Transformers have been relentlessly serving humanity over 135 years of existence and have always met the challenges of times.
Today's transformers adequately address: increased voltage and power ratings, energy efficiency, optimised designs with reduced consumption of materials, reliability of operation and environmental concerns of biodegradability of materials, noise pollution, safety etc.
Tomorrow's transformers are gearing up to meet emerging scenario in the 21st Century: renewable sources of power generation -wind & solar (onshore/offshore), distributed generation and seamless integration with existing Grids, sustainability and quality of power for smart cities, digitalisation etc. The quality, reliability and availability of such a vital asset would play an important role in ambitious goal of uninterrupted (24x7) power to all and can contribute in control of power flow in power system along with HVDC system. The key takeback from this online conference is that it provides one stop information on all aspects of transformers.
e-Trafotech 2020 aims to take stock of the past, present and emerging technologies in the Realm of Transformers.
