Challenge: A Major Alarm
A prominent U.S. utility was looking for a way to improve system reliability for their 138kV assets. They researched and reviewed options available on the market that included affordable bushing monitoring. After review, the utility chose to pilot the Dynamic Ratings’ C50 Transformer Monitor to see if it was worth the investment to become part of the overall solution.
The C50 Transformer Monitors were installed and serviced on the transformers by Dynamic Ratings Field Engineers.
