Optimized Program Service held its annual Optimized Program Service Instructional Workshop from September 28th to September 29th, 2017. Colleagues and engineers around the world gathered here in Cleveland, Ohio.

Thank you all of those who attended!

We are proud to announce that the Optimized Program Service Instructional Workshop was a great success.

We were able to present numerous examples to illustrate the program features, enhancements, and new options. Attendees had the opportunity to ask questions about the features and capabilities of OPS software, and there were some great discussions within the transformer design community. Engineers were able to exchange many ideas and discuss underlying concerns in the transformer industry, focused on various decisions faced by the designer. If you have questions about our next workshop or would like to attend, please email [email protected]

Below are a few statements the attendees had to say regarding the

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.”


“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 DOE efficiency standards.”
