ALTANOVA Global Transformer Monitoring System (TrafoNOVA) offers an integrated monitoring of a power transformer: from generic parameters monitoring to bushing, DGA and partial discharge. It is essential to monitor the operating conditions, insulation system, and the working conditions of all the components, to reduce the costs associated with a transformer’s life cycle and to guarantee the reliability and durability of the asset.
Power Transformers are one of the most critical and expensive assets and take a very long time to be replaced or restored after a failure.
To monitor the health of the electrical asset, a Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) allows to detect potential sources of problems at a very early stage and to take the necessary countermeasures before irreversible and harmful events occur. ALTANOVA has developed a modular monitoring system to reduce costs associated to transformer’s life cycle and guarantee its reliability and durability. The Global Transformer Monitoring System (TrafoNOVA) is a configurable monitoring system that can be combined according to the customer requirements.
TrafoNOVA allows to monitor the following parameters:
Generic transformer parametres:
Detected gasses from 1 to 9(*), for instance:
(*)Depending on DGA requested by customer.
Partial discharge monitoring:
An effective diagnosis emerging from smart Condition-Based Maintenance can have the following benefits:
