The IEEE Florida West Coast Section Life Members Affinity Group (LMAG) and Power Energy Society/Industry Applications Society (PES/IAS), in collaboration with GE Grid Solutions, is bringing to the IEEE community this awesome tour of the GE/ITI Clearwater Instrument Transformer Facility. GE/ITI Clearwater is the main manufacturing facility for all GE instrument transformers <69 kV. GE manufactures over 500,000 dry-type instrument transformers every year for utility and industrial applications out of the Clearwater facility.
This tour event will consist of a 45–60-minute classroom session to cover the basics of what makes an instrument transformer different, types of instrument transformers, applications, nameplate basics and how to apply, and the future of the industry.
The second part of the event will be a 1–2-hour walk-through of the factory floor from the component production, core manufacturing, transformer winding, casting, and final test. As a bonus, there will also be a brief walk-through of the capacitor production floor.
Participants are required to wear safety shoes and safety glasses. The facility does have safety shoe covers available, but supplies are limited, please include during registration if you will need a shoe cover + shoe size. Hearing protection will be provided at the necessary locations. Additional information regarding parking and other instructions will be provided ahead of the event via email to those registered.
