New Version of Software Enables Transformer Condition Assessment

BPL Global Ltd. has released Version 4.0 of its TM View transformer diagnostic software. Version 4.0 provides intuitive data displays as well as diagnostic tools, enabling comprehensive transformer condition assessment for better asset management decisions. Accessing on-line dissolved gas data from its Serveron transformer monitors, the software automatically populates the diagnostic tools, including Rogers Ratios and the suite of Duval Triangles. The breakthrough is in trending diagnostic indicators, thereby turning raw data into information that can deliver new and immediate insights into power transformer operating condition.

Reliable energy flow is paramount and transformers are critical, and some of the costliest, assets in the electrical network. On-line DGA of transformer oil is the most effective indicator of a transformer’s overall condition. The TM Series of transformer monitors measure the levels of dissolved gases in the insulating oil of power transformers. By accurately detecting trace levels of these gases, the monitors assist utilities in achieving the highest levels of safe power transformer operation. Utilities benefit by receiving more timely information on conditions that could lead to catastrophic failure. Continuous oil sampling and accuracy by the Serveron TM Series Monitors significantly reduce the likelihood of unplanned outages, lower maintenance costs and defer capital expenditures by extending transformer life.
