Advancements in Dissolved Gas Analysis: Data Quality

Introduction
There is more to DGA interpretation than comparing the latest gas concentrations to limits in a table or plotting them in a triangle or pentagon to identify the apparent fault type. We have found that the whole DGA history of a transformer must be considered when interpreting its most recent DGA results.
Trend evaluation and accurate assessment of short-term changes require accuracy and low measurement variability of gas data. Data quality problems must be...

The Distribution Transformer - Critical Power System Component

By R.W. Hurst, Editor A distribution transformer is a critical component of the electrical power system, used to reduce the voltage of electrical energy for electric power distribution to end-users. It plays a vital role in voltage regulation and load management, ensuring the efficient and reliable...

Grounding Transformers Explained

By R. W. Hurst, Editor Grounding transformers are used to provide a path to ground for unbalanced load current and for fault currents on systems where a suitable ground is otherwise not available. Grounding transformers are normally constructed with one of the two configurations: Zig-Zag (Zn) with...
