In industries, digitalization is steadily growing. The technology such as smarts sensors, connectivity, big data analytics, in memory-computing and cyber-physical systems become more and more relevant. In order to efficiently operate and maintain existing systems and prevent critical errors on power transformers, the right equipment must be at hand. In addition, topics such as the decentralization of energy production, increasing requirements for cyber security and increasing cost pressure are playing an increasingly significant role.
Digital intelligence performs different tasks for controlling, regulating and monitoring a power transformer, storing data, generating messages and communicating with the higher-level control system directly on the transformer. It therefore offers extended functionalities, which enable new ways to design, install and operate a transformer, which will be discussed.
