Abstract

Installation of the monitoring system or adding digital features to the distribution transformer fleet may seem like an unnecessary cost. Still, if it is appropriately conducted, it can be very beneficial in terms of the transformer’s operation and cost reduction when looking at the transformer lifetime scale. This second part of the article focuses on the economic calculations to demonstrate how digitalization is cost beneficial and how it can extend the transformer’s lifetime. Sustainable transformer ratings are introduced.

Keywords
