Benefits of Transformer Analysis with ALcontrol

Transformers and oil filled insulating systems are usually large investments and provide the most the important aspect to the majority of all industries – POWER.

How we can help

  • Reduce Transformer downtime.
  • Identify excessive overheating and overloading within the transformer.
  • Identify Arcing within the transformer.
  • Detect loose connections and badly butted joints.
  • Alerts you to possible paper insulation embrittlement.
  • Diagnose Tap-Changer problems e.g. burning contacts.

 

Types of Analysis

  • Routine: Monitor contamination, water content, acidity and dielectric strength of transformer oil to identify root causes of problems before they lead to failure of your system.
  • DGA: Dissolved Gas Analysis is a must have tool to ensure your equipment remains in peak condition. By looking at concentrations of specific combustible gases then applying various diagnostic tools to identify fault conditions within the system. 
  • PCB – These are synthetic chlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons which have excellent thermal and electrical properties. However, this stability has made them resistant to biodegradation and is a cause for concern in regards to environment pollution. The use of PCB's was banned in 1986 however due to common handling facilities this has led to widespread contamination. PCB content in new equipment should be measured to confirm it is PCB free before waste disposal.
