Siemens Technical Tutorial – Transformer Monitoring

Tutorial Presenter

This seminar includes presentations on the latest in transformer online monitoring. Power transformers are typically the single largest capital investment in a substation and monitoring can be leveraged to meet different objectives.  Monitoring can encompass something as simple as an oil level gauge or as complex as a full digitalized analytic system.  Advancements in transformer monitoring technologies and the integration of various monitoring solutions will be presented.
