In recent years, emphasis has grown for the systems and equipment of businesses to offer complete connectivity, as technology has developed to allow this to be a possibility and has revolutionised the way in which businesses manage the performance of their assets.
Until recently, distribution transformers had been passed by in this revolution as they largely remained offline and unconnected. However, this has changed through the advent of the concept of the smart transformer. A smart transformer is a distribution transformer which is digitally enabled; this allows it to be connected and online at all times.
As a result of this increased connectivity, smart transformers can provide online monitoring which enables users to check vital aspects of the condition and performance of the transformer, such as the oil condition and temperature, in real-time. This is a clear step level improvement on the now antiquated previous method of annual manual and offline maintenance checks.
In response to this, Powerstar has used its expertise as a leading smart energy solutions provider to create the super low loss amorphous core smart transformer, Powerstar SO-LO.
Powerstar SO-LO fits into the 4th industrial revolution of Industry 4.0 through its remote monitoring capabilities which allow 24/7 visibility of the performance of the transformer. In addition to this Powerstar SO-LO can also be integrated with other energy efficiency technologies, such as voltage management, which can itself be monitored through remote monitoring to enable the implementation of a holistic energy management system.
