The IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) Malaysia Chapter has organized an online workshop entitled “DGA Interpretation Workshop”. The event was funded by IEEE Malaysia Section and technically supported by MyHVnet. The event was held online via Cisco WebEx and was attended by around 50 participants.

The main aim of this activity is to educate participants on the theoretical and practical applications of DGA as one of the best universal techniques to determine the health of power transformers. The workshop started with two talk sessions: “Transformer Oil Standard & Diagnostics” by Ir. Dr. Aizam Talib and “DGA Interpretations” by Ir. Dr. Norazhar Abu Bakar. An online networking session was conducted via Padlet platform. After the talks, a hands-on session on DGA interpretations was conducted in two parallel sessions facilitated by experienced panels.

It is hoped that the experience and knowledge shared during the workshop are beneficial to all participants.
