Transformers are among the most expensive assets in a power transmission network representing on average 60% of substation capital costs. With an increasing emphasis on predictive maintenance practices to extend the life of these assets, there’s no shortage of diagnostic measurements and tools available to help provide a clearer picture of the overall health of a transformer.
