Advances in equipment and implementation of monitoring technology is bringing us closer to ideal transformer Condition Based Maintenance (CBM). GE Digital Energy’s leading Monitoring and Diagnostics subject matter experts have prepared a two-part white paper series.Read More
A Business Case can be a powerful tool in obtaining the funds you need to drive change in achieving optimally performing systems. We explore 9 common components of a well written proposal.Read More
Transformer monitoring can assist in extending the life and performance of a transformer. Our CORE Transformer Optimisation approach - a fleet-wide "whole of life" methodology offers a broader evaluation of the transformer environment, addressing the interrelated planning, operational and risk factors that impact transformer performance and life. In doing so, it paves the way for better decision making, greater asset security and lower total cost of ownership.Read More
Previously, Insulect has written about a variety of individual power plant monitoring applications, including Fault and Disturbance, Power Quality and Dynamic Behaviour. In this article we take a look at a solution for monitoring and analysing all these aspects of a generation power system – as well as AEMO FCAS reporting – using a single device and one integrated software package.Read More
Qualitrol have recently announced a number of new additions to their Fibre Optic Temperature Monitoring product range. Designed to give asset owners more information and greater control over what is happening inside their transformers, the new range offers additional choice and flexibility to suit a wider range of needs.Read More
Qualitrol have made available another on-demand webinar. This one – Transformer Winding Hot Spot Temperature Determination – continuing on from last month’s webinar on Transformer Monitoring Basics.
This latest webinar outlines the developments in effective monitoring of a transformer’s internal temperature. Loading capability of power transformers is limited mainly by winding temperature. Knowing the exact internal temperature allows for better loading capability, longer asset life, hence greater revenues and lower asset replacement / repair costs.Read More
Last year an Asian transmission utility invited four companies to demonstrate the capabilities of their travelling wave fault location systems. Five tests were carried out over three days with one clear winner at the end.Read More
