In our popular, free-to-watch webinar, I explain the fundamentals of dissolved gas analysis in power transformers and how the Vaisala Optimus™ DGA Monitor can help maintain transformer health and avoid critical failures.
If there is a fault in a transformer, one – or several – of seven gases will form: methane, ethane, ethylene, acetylene, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, or hydrogen. The type and amount of gas can reveal both the nature and severity of the fault. DGA online monitoring is the only online method capable of identifying the majority of internal faults – by detecting faults early, it allows timely corrective action to be taken before severe transformer failure, as well as reducing lifetime maintenance and repair costs. Online DGA monitoring also increases safety during transformer end-of-life, as well as making sure any faults in new transformers caused by manufacturing, transportation, or installation are promptly identified.
There are many questions you may want to ask when considering an online monitor for your transformers:
The webinar covers each of these questions and explains how to ensure you get the right solution for your installation first time. It also explains the advantages of online DGA monitoring, and how to take an approach that factors in the total cost of ownership.
