About this event

Power transformer will play a significant role in the future smart grid topologies. Insulation system within power transformers comprises paper and oil that decompose due to the high electrical and thermal stresses. To maintain the transformer within the expected harsh operational environment, reliable and intelligent condition monitoring techniques should be adopted. While there are several techniques currently used by industry to monitor the condition of power transformers based on its insulating system, most of these techniques are either offline and/or exhibit inconsistent or unreliable interpretation process.

In this presentation, current industry practice to monitor the condition of the transformer insulation system using dissolved gas analysis (DGA) will be covered. Limitation of current measurement/interpretation techniques will be highlighted. Future challenges and Research direction will be also presented.
