Project: T213700 #30/140
 

The objective of this project is to determine:

 

  • Through interaction with utilities, determine what condition assessment data they utilize to assess condition of their power transformers and what triggers are employed in the determination of condition and end-of-life.
  • Through discussion with utilities, determine how successful or accurate these historic condition assessments have been, based on their operational experience. 
  • Perform post removal, or post failure, forensic (data and physical) reviews of substation power transformers to compare historic condition assessments of these transformers compared to actual condition assessments following their removal.
  • Determine enhanced condition assessment and end-of-life guidelines based on this analysis.
