Predicting and Preventing Transformer Outages
Maintenance crews rely on condition monitoring technologies like ultrasound inspection and infrared imaging to predict electrical component failures in all systems. The earlier a problem is spotted the larger the window for scheduling maintenance. Electrical repair crews prefer to make repairs on their terms, rather than the terms of the machine. Being alerted early that a system needs attention also means that the
maintenance required is “simple maintenance” as opposed to costly overhaul, total repair, and replacement.
