GE Helps Utilities and Industrial Companies Prevent Costly Transformer Failures
Today more than ever, utilities and industrial companies need to manage costs while delivering reliable power,” said Simon Phillips, general manager, Monitoring & Diagnostics-Grid Automation. “Transformers are a critical component of the power production cycle and bushings are an integral part of a transformer. The Intellix BMT 300 monitors the transformer’s bushings to identify potential failures before they happen to prevent costly repairs and in some cases, avoid the complete loss of the customer’s transformer.”
The BMT 300 provides customers with several key benefits, including:
Continuous monitoring for early recognition of developing bushing faults to avoid catastrophic failure.
Partial Discharge activity detection for faster identification of potential arcing faults.
Condition-based maintenance and replacement of bushings resulting in less downtime, fewer site visits and lower costs.
Seamless integration with GE’s Kelman TRANSFIXTM DGA analyzer and PERCEPTION software for a comprehensive, in-depth view of the entire transformer health.
One-source supplier installation and service, ensuring proper communication and minimizing the administrative burden to provide lower total cost of ownership.
