Transformers are an essential part of the vast network used to manage electric power distribution. Therefore, their maintenance and upkeep are vital for any power distribution company to maintain a predictable and safe power supply to customers making inspections a crucial element in the operations.

This page will cover some of the critical elements of the transformer inspection checklist;

  • What does a typical transformer inspection cover
  • Importance of transformer inspections
  • How Fielda can help eliminate errors and streamline your Transformer inspection process

What Inspections Include: Inspections are conducted daily, monthly, and annual, usually covering data on a range of items from basic ground resistance tests, grounding, and exterior checks to insulation resistance, winding configuration, and auxiliary device operation. Essential routine readings include Magnetic Oil Gauge (MOG), oil leaks check from any part of the transformer, Silica Gel color in the breather, etc.

Why Transformer Inspection is so critical: Poor maintenance can cause physical or structural damage. Fires can pose serious risks, and accidents can disrupt operations and impact health, safety, and the environment. Inspections help ensure Transformers are in top condition all the time.
