Hydrogen is a general gas that is generated in various transformer faults. Hydrogen measurement is used for example as a simple early warning indicator in power transformers before actual failure occurs.
The Vaisala MHT410 combines a pair of thin film sensors with a temperature sensor to provide direct real-time measurement of the Hydrogen and Moisture in oil. Most importantly, by using the sensors in line in the oil, you get long-term field operation with no consumables or maintenance costs.
In this free of charge webinar, we’ll review some of the basics of dissolved gas analysis in power transformers. We’ll focus on Vaisala’s solution and introduce the Vaisala DGA Monitor Optimus in more detail.
Online monitoring of hydrogen and moisture in the insulating oil of power transformers provides a real-time view of transformer condition. Real time date ensures that maintenance is optimized.
Continuous monitoring of hydrogen and moisture with an in-situ probe is the first step in extending the lifetime of a transformer through implementation of condition based maintenance (CBM) practices, leading to a lower total cost of ownership.
With Hydrogen and Moisture monitoring solutions, like the MHT410 from Vaisala, you get highly selective sensors that provide no false alarms, as well as no consumables or mechanical parts, resulting in reliable long-term operation.
Finnish nuclear power company Teollisuuden Voima implemented Vaisala’s online hydrogen, moisture and temperature monitor to constantly follow the condition of their transformers. The continuous monitoring gives information on the transformer oil 24/7, helping to plan maintenance actions.
Take a behind-the-scenes look into Vaisala's top-of-the-line DGA lab operates. Vaisala's DGA laboratory is a world-class facility, where many groundbreaking methods for Dissolved Gas Analysis have been created.
With transformers being some of the most valuable assets in electrical power networks, constituting around 60% of substation capital costs, continuous condition monitoring can pay for itself many times over, helping to minimize breaks in electricity distribution.
