Substation asset life extension
Your substation is a complex hub of high-voltage equipment that works hard every day to power your production. Do you know your critical substation assets? Do you have strategies in place for maintaining them?
Click on the substation components below to learn more about what they do, why they fail, and how you can prolong their reliable life.
Dry type transformer
True to its name, a dry-type transformer does not require fluid. It performs the same function as the transformer (converting electricity to usable voltages), but it’s better suited for low and medium voltage applications that don’t require as much cooling or dielectric strength. Typically you’ll see the dry-type transformer inside of your facility.
