Abstract

Distribution transformer being the most vital asset in any electrical statistical dispersion network needs special care and attention. In major power systems, distribution transformer is electrical equipment which distributes power to the low voltage users directly, and its surgical operation condition is an important factor of the entire distribution network operation. Operation of distribution transformer under rated condition warrantees their long animation. However their life is significantly reduced if they are subjected to overloading, resulting in unexpected bankruptcy and departure of supply to a large number of customers thus effecting system reliability. The fault free operation of transformers gives more impact on financial and security in power supply to utilities and industrial and domestic consumers. A sudden breakdown in a power Transformers will influence surprising creation intrusion, down time of the equipments in industries and the repair/replacement of the transformer; it might prompt tremendous speculation and costs. The insulating oil in a transformer can tell a lot about the actual state of transformer and its longevity. This proposed work mainly focuses on monitoring of transformer and transformer oil by using microcontroller (8051) and relay with suitable sensors for sensing parameters such as oil level, vibration, temperature, gas leakage, voltage and current and by controlling it with one key press of keyboard of PC.
