Beyond DGA - Will Your Gassing Transformer Fail?
About the Seminar
As a transformer ages, its risks of failure rise and its inherent reliability deteriorates. Possible consequences of an unexpected failure of a business-critical transformer can be uncontrolled financial costs / lower profit due to loss of production and business interruption. Additional consequences can be reduced asset life and loss of life. Regular oil analysis provides an insight into the “health” status of a transformer and a low-cost means of tracking a fault. When combined with other electrical tests and sound engineering knowledge, oil analysis can provide a very powerful tool to diagnose and assess the condition of each unit.
This webinar explores the use of dissolved gas analysis (DGA) to identify advancing failure modes in a power transformer. Our transformer specialists will then detail electrical test and inspection strategies that can be applied to identify the assets true underlying condition and comprehensively assess the severity of an existing problem. This information is essential to help an asset manager understand what corrective actions can be taken to reduce the risk of failure. The webinar will include several instructive case studies.
Who should join: Engineering and maintenance personnel who test, maintain and / or repair transformers.
Phil Reilly is a scientist who has focused his professional career to the application of industrial chemistry to the power transformer industry, both nationally and internationally. He is currently based in Australia, where he specialises in condition monitoring of power transformers through oil sampling and analysis. Phil also helps asset owners implement transformer life management strategies across their transformer fleet.
Previously, Phil was based in the UK where he developed engineering web applications for clients such as Shell Oil.
