Comms & IT and Asset Management
· Conduct a literature review of PHM, gain understanding of the various tools used and identify optimal tools for use with this project
· Undertake a small initial relay based project using knowledge from the literature review to consolidate project researchers’ experience in the concepts of PHM
- · Develop and optimise an online oil condition monitoring and prognostics system prototype
Test the prototype on a decommissioned SHE Transmission grid transformer and evaluate its cost-effectiveness
The learning generated from this project will directly benefit all transmission network licensees and Distribution Network Operators since they are all running ageing assets. The system can potentially provide better and more accurate assessment of an operational transformer’s health and condition and help system planners make informed asset management decisions.
Should the project be successful other network licensees could find use of the technology in assessing other assets on the grid thereby extending the potential financial benefits from the system.
