Condition-based assessment of on-load tap changers

On-load tap changers (OLTCs) are a crucial element of utility networks, as they must operate in a precise fashion in order to maintain a constant voltage output. This must be achieved regardless of variation on input or load. OLTCs have been a weak link in many networks, as they deteriorate over time due to mechanical […]

Vibration monitor for rotating machines

The Monitran condition monitoring system monitors and logs vibration in rotating machines. The device can measure as many as 32 channels. Parameters that can be measured include velocity and envelope g, as well as temperature. Known as the MTN5032, the microcontroller-based system has an easy-to-navigate 18,5 cm colour touch screen which enables users to set alarm […]
