The Mobile Transformer Assessment Clinic (MTAC) is designed to offer a finely
engineered solution to the fundamental problem of the need to administer expensive and complex on-line dissolved gas analysis systems to oil filled transmission assets that are exhibiting divergence from ideal behaviour.
Once tested and found to be functional in all aspects of it’s design, it is expected
each unit will be deployed to at least 4 separate assets each per year, saving the
cost of a fixed asset installation each time (£26k).
More importantly, they will give us the ability both financially and technically, to
administer high resolution, high cost on-line DGA monitoring to any asset on the
system without having to raise funding to do so.
The cost of deployment of the MTAC system to any asset in the UK is typically
going to be £2k.
