Paper Abstract

Proper training and a full understanding of substation components are necessary to effectively perform IRT surveys and analysis of components in high voltage substations. Most thermographers cannot be expected to have extensive substation equipment and operations knowledge. Therefore, this paper and tutorial presentation are designed to aid the thermographic community with the identification and the expected thermal signatures from these components. Technologies complementary to IR are also included in this presentation. Equipment discussed in this paper includes transformers and their cooling systems, load tap changers, circuit breakers, potential transformers, current transformers, lightning arresters, bushings, and standoff insulators.
