INITIAL ASSESSMENT ON SITE
The first step is for our experts to conduct an initial assessment of the site and gauge the condition of the power transformers. In doing so, they check which sensors are already fitted and what kind of upgrades can be installed. The existing communication equipment, interfaces and control systems are also analyzed in the inspection.
After initial assessment of the existing infrastructure, we develop an automation system which is tailored to the customer’s specific requirements. We then provide advice on how to control and monitor the transformer.
Once the concept is completely developed, the implementation stage begins. If new sensors are needed, our engineers install them on site, after which the monitoring systems are configured and installed.
In the next stage, we provide support for commissioning. Our experts inspect the installed monitoring systems and the data transmission from the sensors. Then the monitoring system is connected to the control systems and the operating personnel are given the necessary training.
Even after commissioning, we are available for help and advice; for example in regard to equipment assessment or the integration of additional data sources. In addition, we provide support for potential software updates and for new functions.
