Integrated sensing and monitoring technology in ABB’s new TXpert transformer will provide data to maximise reliability, optimise operating and maintenance costs and manage the asset more efficiently. This latest product builds on the ABB Ability digital offering that uses cloud computing and connected devices to generate actionable data for a broad range of customers.
The performance data collected from the sensors is stored and analysed within the transformer, offering insights on how it is operating. This includes activities like scheduling of maintenance, optimising system performance and planned asset replacement. Power grids are undergoing an unprecedented transformation both on the supply and demand side. Many new and distributed sources of energy including the influx of renewables and new demand loads like datacenters and electric vehicles, call for a more flexible grid, driving the need for greater digitalisation and automation.
