WESTCO Technical Presentation Details

 1. Schedule: Nov 27 (Wed) 9:30-10:00AM | Function Room 4 & 5

Abstract:

Power transformer mechanical integrity is of prime importance in power delivery system. During faults on the power system, transformers sees the fault current. The fault current induces destructive mechanical forces on the transformer structure. The core, windings, terminations and associated mounting structure experiences these forces. These internal forces weakens or alters the mechanical structure of the transformer. If not attended or diagnosed the subsequent faults may result in the failure of the transformer. Sweep Frequency Response Analysis (SFRA) technique enables user to diagnose the mechanical integrity of the transformer following the events like fault, relocation of the transformer as well as acceptance of the transformer received from the manufacturer. SFRA technique allows user to compare the frequency based response from the previous one to detect any possible mechanical changes in the mechanical structure of the transformer. This paper describes theory of the SFRA, standards requirements, existing industry practices with number of field case study.

Title:

"Online Partial Discharge Evaluation of Cables w/ Localizatin"

Abstract: 

Valuable experiences about Partial Discharge measurements of cable systems in Medium and High Voltage grids have been acquired in the latest years. Significant efforts have been made to deal with the most common problems arising in an on-site and online measurements such as high levels of noise and interference, the emergence of different PD sources simultaneously, and the difficulty of locating the site of the defects. In order to overcome all these drawbacks, an efficient method based in advance measuring and diagnosis techniques is introduced, with the aim to achieve a proper sensitivity in PD measurements and an accurate assessment of the elements of insulation condition.

Title:

“Infrared Imaging Question?  Look to The Cloud”

Abstract: 

Infrared thermal imaging is arguably the most common and most effective method for predictive and condition-based maintenance, as well as the primary go-to method for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) procedures.  However, depending on the number of assets, thermal scans are often performed in cycles.  Despite the diligence, failures can occur during cycles, raising the question, “what happened while I wasn’t looking?”.This presentation looks into the fundamentals, advantages, and deployment of an online thermal monitoring system for the digital age.  Discover how we can elevate our role from maintenance to asset planning with information that is relevant and timely.
