Monitoring and maintaining Insulating Oil quality and the integrity of a transformer through Dissolved Gas Analysis are essential in ensuring reliable plant operation. Large oil-filled electrical equipment, such as transformers and reactors, is a critical element of an electrical power system. The early detection of incipient faults in transformers will greatly reduce unplanned power outages and improve the reliability of the power and service supplied to customers.
Damages to the equipment will be restricted when incipient faults are detected and timely action is taken. Dissolved Gas Analysis enables early detection to limit the amount of adjacent damages and confines the area requiring repair and maintenance. The cost of a power transformer is high, but monitoring the performance of the transformer via the oil is inexpensive compared to the costs of a failure in a transformer and the costs of interruption in power supplies.
