TXpert, the world's first digital distribution transformer developed by ABB, was unveiled in Hangzhou. Compared with traditional distribution transformers, TXpert uses innovative sensing and monitoring technology, which can store and analyze the collected operating data inside the transformer, thereby providing recommendations for the diagnosis of transformer operating conditions.
At present, both in the supply side and the demand side, the field of power grids is undergoing unprecedented changes. A variety of new and distributed energy sources are constantly emerging.Renewable energy grid connection, new load requirements from data centers and electric vehicles, etc. have placed higher requirements on the reliability of the power grid, and have spawned increasing demands for digitalization and automation. . Intelligent products with communication functions have become an integral part of the integration of information technology and operation technology.
Han Baihe, senior vice president of ABB Group and head of the transformer business unit, said, “As part of the ABB transformer intelligent diagnostic system, TXpert will play an important role in improving the performance, predictability and reliability of distribution transformers, helping customers Make critical decisions on operations and maintenance, and support transformers for more efficient asset management throughout their lifecycle, such as maintenance scheduling, system performance optimization, and asset updates. "
According to reports, TXpert uses integrated sensor technology, which can record data every 10 seconds, while using military-grade encrypted data storage for up to 20 years. In addition, it also has a local WIFI network, and can also connect a variety of communication media and communication protocols. With TXpert, users can accurately monitor the service life of transformers and the total harmonic distortion of the power grid.
At present, when many domestic manufacturing enterprises use traditional distribution transformers, they usually store backup equipment to prevent sudden equipment failure. With TXpert, users can know the operating status of the transformer at any time, which can greatly reduce or cancel the number of spare parts. Also when maintaining the transformer, users can arrange maintenance time according to the operating status of the transformer and the production status of the enterprise to ensure production use as much as possible.
