Manual vs. Automated Thermal Monitoring

▪ Snapshot image of temperature profiles ▪ Provides continuous temperature data


▪ Not suited to trend analysis ▪ Trend Analysis
▪ Requires operator to be at right place at ▪ Analytics / automatic alerts
right time
▪ Continuous monitoring – input to ‘Condition
▪ No visibility of changes over time Based Maintenance’
▪ Travel, time, manual data entry Private and Confidential ▪ Reduced travel to sites, improved safety

Visual Asset Monitoring
• Real time view of what is going
on at the substation

• Tuned to avoid false alarms


caused by small animals or the
environment

• Schedule configurability when


authorized personnel are
working at site to eliminate
unnecessary alarms

What Can Thermal Cameras Monitor?
Transformers:
• Bushings
• Connections – heating due to poor mechanical
connection
• Insulation breakdown – heating due to partial
discharge
Current Transformer / Arrestor / Disconnect Switch:
• Connections – heating due to poor mechanical
connection
• Insulation breakdown – heating due to partial
