Power transformers are vital assets for delivery of electricity in generation, transmission and distribution networks. Their reliability and performance are essential, and their failure rates and modes of failure are of concern to utilities and asset managers.
In South Africa, catastrophic transformer failures are increasing, causing interruption in power supply, high repair and replacement costs, revenue losses and environmental and collateral damage from explosion and fire.
A wholistic strategy including online monitoring, routine diagnostics, condition-based maintenance, reconditioning, refurbishment or replacement, and effective management of the transformer fleet maximises its efficiency, reliability and operating life.
At this webinar, expert researchers, users, original equipment manufacturers and repairers provide valuable insights on how to manage the transformer fleet for maximum reliability and life, while minimising total life-cycle costs.
