Transformer Health Monitoring System
Transformers are fundamental and one of the most essential constituents of distribution and transmission system of electricity. Condition-based health monitoring of electrical transformers for faults before their occurrence can prevent damages that not only eventuate the loss of power supply but also cause defects in the system that are costly to overhaul.
This system is able to reflect the health of transformers during its operation in real time as a component of smart grid, using intrusive and non-intrusive parameters, so that engineers can take proper preventive measures before minor issues become major faults. It may be noted that due to currently nonexistent health monitoring of Pole Mounted Transformers, considerable loss is incurred due to failure of these PMTs as well as the resulting disruption to consumers. BOLTS (Private) Limited signed an agreement with NHL as an active industry partner for this system.
