Survey of leading power utilities sheds light on their transformer health monitoring practices and future plans
Power utilities are using proactive tools, such as condition-based maintenance (CBM) applications, to improve critical asset health management, avoid catastrophic transformer failure and minimize operational risk. To gain insight into utilities' current transformer monitoring practices, as well as their future plans, mPrest conducted a survey of leading North American generation power utilities. Our findings show that many utilities realize the need for better transformer health monitoring applications, and have started to implement online DGA monitoring and analytics accordingly.
