FORUM: Mistakeproof: The Art and Science of Infrared and Ultrasound Inspections

November 19, 2020 | 11 a.m. EST | Free access to members

SUMMARY

 

In this forum you’ll learn how to avoid common mistakes made while using condition-based test equipment for electrical inspections. Our experts will lay a solid foundation for:

  • Recognizing common issues related to human error

  • Training on basic infrared, ultrasound, and partial discharge test equipment

  • Understanding the new IEEE standard on acoustic measurements

  • Comparing acoustic and electrical methods of measurement

In most technical professions, human error can cause equipment damage and expensive repairs. In electric power reliability, however, the stakes are even higher. Mistakes can cause injury, cause outages that halt production instantly, or generate incorrect data that can send trending awry.

So, what mistakes can happen during electrical inspections? What are the consequences? What can we do to prevent errors from happening?

This discussion—part of the EPRA Forums series—will address these questions and more.

This month features experts with extensive experience with electrical inspections from practical and technical perspectives.

In this forum, you'll hear from Resource Practitioner Martin Robinson, an innovative leader in the electrical maintenance industry who, as the founder of IRISS, has more patents to his name than seems possible. Joining Martin is Roy Huff and Allan Rienstra—of The Snell Group and SDT Ultrasound Solutions, respectively—who have probably trained more people in the use of infrared and ultrasound for electrical CBM than any two practitioners in the profession. Marco Tozzi of Camlin, who serves on the IEEE working group on acoustic measurements, rounds out our panel, bringing his expertise into the technical aspects of inspection.

This edition is a must-see for anyone involved with electric power system reliability.
