TRANSFORMER FAULT DETECTION USING ZIGBEE
Department of ECE,DSCE Page 1
In search of our project we plan to do something, which is yet to be established and must beuseful to day to day life. We analyzed the current situation and realized that if there may besystem that informs the user about various faults in the transformer, we will be able to preventsevere damages. So we decided to develop such a system that detects transformer faults.A system which can detect the voltage of a transformer from normal to danger and to take aninitiatives to avoid damage to a transformer.Power transformers are designed to transmit and distribute electrical power. Depending on thesize of a transformer, replacement costs can range from a few hundred dollars to millions of dollars. Performing offline and invasive tests also add to the replacement cost. Hence, there is anincreasing need to move from traditional schedule-based maintenance programs to condition-based maintenance. However, a focused approach is required for diagnostics.
