Do a good job in the operation and debugging of the transformer

After the overall installation work is completed, a comprehensive inspection and debugging of the transformer should be carried out. Once any problems are found, they should be dealt with in time. For some problems that cannot be dealt with, the transformer should be replaced in time.

In the process of transformer operation and commissioning, the method of full-voltage impulse closing is mainly adopted.

Generally, 5 times of closing are required, and the first closing time should be less than 10 minutes. In this way, the staff can discover the internal problems of the transformer in time.

After completing this experiment, if there is no abnormality in the operation of the transformer, it is necessary to continue the operation and debugging of the transformer under the half-load state.

At this time, it is necessary to arrange special recorders and special quality monitoring personnel, who can judge the actual situation inside the transformer by the sound of the transformer at this time.

For example, under normal circumstances, the sound of the transformer will increase as the external pressure increases, but the sound at this time is still relatively uniform.

If the inside of the transformer makes noise, it indicates that there is a problem with the installation inside the transformer.

In addition, there will be different sounds such as oil leakage of the transformer and the fracture of some internal parts. These sounds can be used to determine the specific fault location and specific problems.
