Many experts anticipate that the number of failures will increase significantly in the near future, from 1% in 2001 to 2% in 2008 [17]

. In addition, the shorter lifetime of new transformers will sharply increase above this rate after 2008.

Transformer Explosion

Company privatisation and market deregulation


 

Protecting transformers against explosion and fire has become a priority because:

  • The worldwide privatisation programs of electricity production and distribution companies have resulted in a reduction of investments ;

  • Today’s competitive markets demand longer life, greater production, which results in aging equipment and overloaded transformers

 

Transformer oil fires are difficult to extinguish



During the internet search for explosions in the USA, SERGI noticed that most of the sites were equipped with fire fighting systems which had failed to extinguish the fire.

This evidence was highlighted recently by the National Fire Protection Association Handbook, Edition 2002, Vol II Section 13,
pages 292 & 293. Because of the large number of fire fighting system failures, the NFPA Handbook emphasizes the    TRANSFORMER PROTECTOR technology for acting before explosion [16]
