Air bubbles in insulating transformer oil can cause serious problems, such as electric discharges or triggering the Buchholz relay and stopping the whole transformer.
So when installing and commissioning measurement equipment for dissolved gas analysis (DGA) in a transformer, it’s important to take care that no air bubbles are introduced into the system.
The Vaisala Optimus™ DGA Monitor OPT100 has a number of unique features that provide clear benefits in this regard. In our online blog, we answer frequently asked questions such as:
– Do I need a separate vacuum pump?
– Do I need specialist assistance to bleed the OPT100?
– How easy is it to install an online monitoring instrument into a power transformer?
