Abstract

Retrofitting condition monitoring systems to aging plant can be problematic, since the particular signature of normal behavior will vary from unit to unit. This paper describes a technique for anomaly detection within the context of the conditions experienced by an in-service transformer, such as loading, seasonal weather, and network configuration. The aim is to model the aged but normal behavior for a given transformer, while reducing the potential for anomalies to be erroneously detected. The paper describes how this technique has been applied to two transmission transformers in the U.K. A case study of 12 months of data is given, with detailed analysis of anomalies detected during that time.
