OMICRON’s MONTRANO online monitoring system is designed for assessing the dielectric health of power transformers under load. The system records changes in capacitance (C), dissipation/power factor (DF/PF), partial discharge (PD) and transient over-voltages. These are primary indicators of insulation breakdown, which can lead to dielectric failure in bushings and transformers.
The CT Analyzer from OMICRON electronics evaluates current transformers based on their class, using the limit values stipulated in international standards. This allows a detailed analysis of the test object, which can be performed directly on site without time-consuming comparisons of measurement results or limit values.
The CMControl P app from OMICRON electronics is designed for operating CMC test sets with Android tablet PCs. The app provides all functionalities of the CMControl P, a PC-independent front-panel control dedicated to the quick manual testing of protection and measurement devices.
Decentralised energy resources (DERs), and especially wind farms, became a challenge for protection, automation and control in the grids. Transmission system operators as well as distribution system operators require tests of loss of mains and other decoupling protection functions. In some countries, certification of these functions is required. The units are equipped with a huge amount of internal protection functions as well as controls. This requires tests during commissioning or ...

Several national and international agreements strive for a decrease in carbon dioxide emissions. For example, the European 20/20/20 targets demand a reduction of the greenhouse gas emissions in the European Union of at least 20 per cent below 1990 levels, 20 per cent of the energy consumption to come from renewable resources and a 20 per cent reduction in primary energy use to be achieved by improving energy efficiency. Ambitious goals such as these are about to challenge and change ...
