Around 20% of distribution transformers fail every year in India, compared to 2 – 3% in developed countries.
WHY DO TRANSFORMERS FAIL?
Can this be avoided?
The answer is YES; most of these can be avoided with proactive monitoring and maintenance. Then why are these failures not prevented?
current practice of manual monitoring involves…
Maintenance staff to consistently monitor
Manual recording of data
maintenance done at schedule time
Every important parameter cannot be monitored
Data doesn’t give any insight to take corrective action
Right data may not be available to key people
No transparency and accuracy in recording data
BOLA, our IoT based low-cost Distribution Transformer Remote Monitoring and Diagnosis solution, monitors the transformer’s vital parameters online from any location in real time. It will diagnose & send alerts/notifications which you will receive on a Laptop or Phone whenever there is any abnormality sensed in the transformer. This allows maintenance to be scheduled and corrective action to be taken before the failure actually happens. The risk of failure is reduced using alarm rules and detection of deviation from a reference value or threshold (e.g., oil and winding temperature).
• Voltage, Current, Frequency
• Active Power, Apparent Power
• Unbalanced Loading, PF
• Low & High Oil Level
• Ambient Temperature
• Oil Temperature
• Winding Hotspot Temperature
• Ambient Humidity
• GPS Location
Remote monitoring of 3-phase currents, oil temperature, winding temperature, oil level, harmonics, etc.
Alarm on overload, unbalanced loading, low power factor, low oil level, high oil temperature, etc.
Real time monitoring of all parameters & graphical display with dashboards, acts as asset register.
Demand variation insights, email & message notifications, tampering
How BOLA system works
It’s a condition-based maintenance system. Data supported maintenance as an when required.
