TXplore: Robotic transformer inspections

Internal Inspection of Oil filled Power Transformers

A transformer internal inspection is sometimes required when certain problems in the transformer are identified through diagnostic measures or when a customer would like to perform an inspection to verify the internal condition of the transformer.

The internal inspection can be a costly and time-consuming process when considering the removal of the oil, the permit-required confined space requirements, and the reprocessing and refilling process.  

Hitachi Energy has Health and Safety Procedures established to perform Internal Inspections inside transformers when an inspector person goes inside the transformer.

One of the main ideas of using a Submersible Transformer Inspection Robot to perform an inspection with the transformer filled with oil is to remove completely the risks inherent in having a person working in a confined space and to reduce the time and cost associated with removing the oil.
