Morgan Schaffer Calistos DGA - Renovables SAMCA

The Samca group increases the reliability of its thermoelectric and photovoltaic plants by installing DGA Calisto monitors.

Application

Output transformers (55MVA) in thermoelectric and photovoltaic plants.

The problem

In the dissolved gas analyses (DGA) that have been conducted periodically, the customer detected an alarming increase in gases in one of the transformers, so they decided to continuously monitor the parameters of the affected equipment.

The solution

From Krilinex Power Solutions, we proposed using Calisto monitors due to their ruggedness, high accuracy and reliability in the results they provide. The client was able to verify the quality of the measurements made by Calisto 2 by comparing the results to a laboratory analysis. After the good results using this equipment, SAMCA decided to purchase a total of 3 Calisto 2 monitors to connect the management and diagnostic software Inside View.

The results

The installation of Calisto 2 by Morgan Schaffer allows monitoring all the transformers, increasing the protection of their main electrical asset and therefore guaranteeing the supply to the grid.
