A high-voltage transformer can represent an investment of up to several million euro – and it may be critical to your power system. To maximise its lifetime and availability, you will want to ensure that it is well cared for and closely monitored.
Oil analysis is the internationally recognised approach to monitor the condition of high-voltage transformers.
Just like a blood sample provides crucial information about a person’s health, regular sampling, analysis and trending of transformer oil provides a critical diagnosis of brewing problems within the transformer. This enables the correct interventions to be made at the optimum time to prolong the transformer lifetime and ensure its safe and reliable operation.
In fact, both your manufacturer’s warranty and your insurance provider may well demand that you carry out a regular and consistent programme of transformer condition monitoring through oil analysis.
