2013 Workshop In Review

Optimized Program Service, LLC. held its Annual Optimized Program Service Instructional Workshop. From September 19th to September 20th, colleagues and engineers around the world gathered here in Cleveland, Ohio.

We are proud to announce that the Optimized Program Service Instructional Workshop was a great success. Engineers were able to exchange many ideas when it comes to designing transformers. They were also able to discuss underling concerns in the transformer industry around the world.

Below are a few statements the attendees had to say regarding the 2013 Optimized Program Service Instructional Workshop:


“I really enjoyed the discussions between the other members when presenting the new software. It was very helpful to hear how the other engineers attempt to design a transformer and their feedback when going through a design provided by OPS.”


“Version 11 appears to be a great advancement. I really enjoyed the discussions we had with OPS staff and colleagues.”


“Hospitality of the staff and Nahid was great!”


“I really enjoyed the discussions about new features on the software & the tools/tricks to get specific results using the software. Also, the data shared about OPS’ contribution to the new DOE 2016 efficiency standards.”
