Interpreting Transformer Dissolved Gas Data in Renewable Applications

As the renewable generation space continues to grow, a unique challenge is presented for the operation and maintenance of medium and high voltage transformers. Variable generation patterns and weather conditions cause transformers to experience abnormal operating parameters resulting in irregular dissolved gasses levels and failures. This unique set of operating parameters requires innovative monitoring techniques and approaches to achieve increased generation availability while maintaining reliability of the overall site. This presentation will provide an overview of the unique operating parameters transformers experience in renewable applications and solutions used to maximize reliability and availability.
