New Geomagnetically Induced Current Monitor

QUALITROL® LLC announced the release of a new online, real time monitor to correlate changes in transformer health under geomagnetic storms.

Geomagnetically induced current (GIC) may affect key assets such as:

  • Large power transformers
  • Motors on pipelines with heavier loading
  • Outages and unexpected damage
  • Qualitrol’s GIC monitor, installed on transformers - and used in conjunction with Qualitrol’s hydrogen dissolved gas analyzer (DGA) - may:
  • Increase the accuracy of the storms characterization,
  • Improve the calculated winding temperature to reflect true real time rating, available overload capacity and its impact on remaining useful life
