Understanding Moisture Dynamics in Power Transformers

In this webinar recording "Moisture Dynamics in Power Transformers" (held originally in September 23, 2014) you will have a chance to learn about the phenomena and its importance to your transformer maintenance planning and daily grid operations.”

   
Duration: Approximately one hour.
Speaker: Steve Jiroutek, Regional Segment Manager, Industrial Applications, Vaisala

Description:

Transformers are among the most expensive assets in a power transmission network representing on average 60% of substation capital costs.  With an increasing emphasis on predictive maintenance practices to extend the life of these assets, there’s no shortage of diagnostic measurements and tools available to help provide a clearer picture of the overall health of a transformer.


While the need to measure moisture in power transformers has been well documented and is universally accepted, the understanding of how moisture moves within a transformer under various conditions is less understood.  Please join us for this webcast sponsored by Vaisala.
