Centre Power Transformer Life Management
Effective power transformer life management programmes are essential
for the maximisation of power supply reliability and the minimisation of
the long term cost of supply.
Advanced Technology Most industrial organisations today depend on a reliable
Centre electricity supply to carry out their business. A major
Ring Road, component of these power supplies is the oil-filled
University of Newcastle power transformer.

A major proportion of power transformer failure
mechanisms can be detected by condition monitoring
> Visual inspection
> Infra-red thermograpghy
> Insulating oil analysis
Connell Wagner's condition monitoring programmes
integrate these methods into its unique
Condition and life assessment:
Connell Wagner's engineers have years of experience
in power transformer condition and life assessment.
Their experience is supported by extensive capabilities
in testing and measurement including:
> High voltage testing (for transformers with windings
to 330 kV)
> Winding resistance, ratio and excitation current
> Insulation condition assessment:
Insulation resistance and polarisation index
Dielectric dissipation factor
> Ultrasonic discharge location
> Frequency response analysis
> Dielectric sprectroscopy
Advanced insulating systems testing techniques
including paper degree of polymerisation and
insulating oil Furan analysis.
