Smart Transformers

By Phill Feltham

Maximizing continuous and reliable power output, extending the life of a power transformer, and reducing maintenance costs are just a few of the benefits motivating electric utilities to move toward buying a “smart transformer”, electrical equipment integrated with Smart Grid-enabling software systems.

Smart transformers combine current competitive technology with data acquisition for monitoring power transformer critical parameters, ultimately maximizing employees’ productivity while minimizing expenses. Additionally, smart transformers integrated into Smart Grid-enabling software systems can reroute power when a transformer is sending out a distress signal or nearing the end of life.

This issue, Electricity Today Magazine gives power transformer station operators and professional engineers who write the specifications a comprehensive breakdown of the critical operating parameters and features commonly found in smart transformers.
