Transformers are a vital part of the transmission and distribution system. Monitoring transformers for problems before they occur can prevent faults that are costly to repair and result in a loss of service. Current systems can provide information about the state of a transformer, but they are either offline or very expensive to implement. The system has been designed to monitor the transformer’s oil temperature and oil level continuously throughout its operation. If the device recognizes oil temperature violates the limit then the entire unit is shut down by the designed controlling unit. And also the systems display the values throughout the process on the SCADA for user’s reference and further inform the current status of the transformer. Thus, the system makes the transformer more secure and intelligent.
