key benefits smart breathers for transformers case study

Transformers are one of the key assets and most expensive equipment in electrical utility companies. The life of the transformer depends on the longevity of solid insulation. Of the several factors that determine the life expectancy of solid insulation, those that have the greatest effect are temperature, moisture and oxidation. The temperature of solid insulation is the primary factor in transformer aging if moisture in the insulation is at a normal level (≤ 0.5 %).
