Transformer Failure detection using Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA).
Author(s): Quist Mirable Jethro and Professor Amevi Ackapovi
A transformer is a device that transfers electrical energy from one circuit to another
through inductively coupled conductors – the transformer coils. Transformer is very important and plays a vital role when it comes to transmission and distribution of electrical energy. Methods and techniques used in sampling, data collection, analyses, computer gas simulation and interpretation are presented. It also discusses the concept formation through critical thinking, and is based on theories derived in literature. It proposed methods of lab test, simulation, and data analysis methods. Combination of research methods. Lab testing were key factor using simulation software available to simulate some findings or results. DGA (Dissolved Gas Analysis Testing was used to detect health conditions of transformers). Secondary data of burnt transformers will be considered. Multiple methods will be employed. The expected result will be better control and protection devices or methods for transformers. Excellent supply of electricity as transformers are now going to be protected from bomb detonation and other environmental influences. Prevent detonation of transformers by bombs, rocket and other explosives as a result of better protection of transformers. Stabilized power supply which will mean that higher productivity in the country as a result of good energy supply. It will serve as appropriate database which will monitors transformer failures in the country. It will serve as reference material for students and academics . It will also contribute to the general body of knowledge.
