Nanotechnology Sensor Can Help Predict Electrical Transformer Failure

Abstract:
Although power and distribution transformers have service lives ranging from 25 to 50 years, there are many electrical transformers that were built and installed post World War II that still remain in service. Itís the internal insulation system and the maintenance of that system that dictates the lifecycle of the transformer. Industry professionals have long been protecting these large capital investments with reliability-centered maintenance programs.
