SIEMENS ENERGY Transformer Online Monitoring systemns consists of smart monitor hosting the digital transformer twin. Based on the data received from relevant sensors like the SITRAM Multisense or Bushing Monitor it computes the transformer conditions, executable technical service action proposals aging rates or load reserves.
Transformers can be monitored locally or remotely by remote monitoring.
The use of SIEMENS ENERGY Transformer Online Monitoring systems paves the road for the application of advanced maintenance practices like condition, risk based or rcliability centered maintenance (CBM, RBM, RCM). By identifying load reserves it is bridging Asset Management and Grid Operations. Conclusively the commercial benefits base on two pillars: The reduction of risk related lifecycle costs as well as additional turnover enabled by Dynamic Overload Management. SIEMENS ENERGY Transformer Online Monitoring products and systems are suitable for both Greenfield and Brownfield transformers
