Online monitoring is a valuable tool for condition assessment of not only transformers, but circuit breakers and instrument transformers, in optimising utilisation and reducing the risk of unexpected failures.

The objective of the presentation is to share knowledge of the activities of other utilities, how to make use of existing assets and apply technology to improve the understanding of the asset performance.
