3D Virtual Class on Phase-Shifting Transformers 


Join us in the first interactive university class in a 3D environment hosted by OMICRON!

Our experienced technical experts invite you to learn more about the important role that Phase-Shifting Transformers (PST) play in our power system.

The proposed lecture will explore theory and also include a practical session where, together, we will test selected parameters using a small phase-shifting transformer

What you will learn

  • How to use PST to control the power flow of the grid
  • How they are constructed, how the phase shift is generated
  • What kind of electrical test methods can be used at the manufacturer or on-site to ensure they work reliably
  • What their extensive short circuit protection system looks like


14:00 Welcome & Introduction

14:20 Conference on Phase-Shifting Transformer - Operation, Testing and Protection

16:00 Open Discussion & Networking

Participation & networking

This event is specifically targeted to members and students of universities and technical colleges. For maximum benefit, after the official lecture we have planned time for informal talks and exchange amongst participants and presenters.

3D virtual classroom

The event will be hosted in a special 3D learning environment provided by Tricat. All participants and the presenters will join as personalized Avatars. This means that you will see and hear your virtual surroundings from the perspective of your virtual alter ego. You don't need any specific equipment (see technical requirements below) and we will show you how to interact and how to participate actively in the session.

Technical requirements

  • PC + Headset* + Internet connection (no need for 3D glasses)
  • Further technical information & minimum standards
  • In order to participate you will need to download and install a software
  • It is also advisable to follow an optional introduction (5-10min) to profit fully from the offered features
  • All instructions – including a step-by-step guideline – will be sent to you upon registration

*for an optimal experience a headset is recommended but not mandatory

Fees and feedback

The class is free of charge. In return we would like to ask you for your valuable feedback. This will help us to further evaluate and improve new methods of knowledge sharing.
