Strategic cooperation between Georg and Güdel Group

Transformer core production on the way to industry 4.0 / IoT

Strategic cooperation between Georg and Güdel Group

The development of an offline e-stacking solution for automatic stacking of transformer cores.

Heinrich Georg Maschinenfabrik and Güdel Group AG concluded a cooperation agreement for the collaborative development of lines for the automatic stacking of transformer cores. GEORG brings in their know-how in the plant engineering field, Güdel the robot technique for the automatic stacking of the laminations. That way, systems are constructed in the future that speed up the production of transformers, reduce manual time and enable a higher production flexibility. Furthermore, the intensive data transfer prepares the ground for industry 4.0 / IoT.

GEORG is leading in the manufacture of production lines for the transformer industry and already has own automation solutions. However, for the manufacture of power and big distribution transformers of up to several hundred tons, many GEORG customer often still stack the individual laminations for the transformer cores manually which is very time consuming. The potential of modern handling systems and the networking of data often remains unused so far. Especially for offline systems, there are only few highly automated systems.

On the basis of their gantry robot, Güdel has already developed an automatic core stacking system for transformers in the 50 kg to 350 tons weight range which was put into operation at a leading European transformer manufacturer. The in-house manufactured gantry robots do not require any external centering units thanks to their high positioning accuracy and repeatability and thus reach significantly lower production times.

With their leading technologies, Güdel Group realises solutions for motion tasks in the individual automation. Martin Sträb, CEO of Güdel Group, emphasises „we will be able to work out even better automation solutions for the transformer industry together with our partner GEORG. The efficiency will be increased further and thereby also the satisfaction of our customers. I look forward to our collaborative work“.

GEORG brings in profound knowledge of the entire line technique in the transformer industry – from the decoiling of the strip from the coil over the cutting-to-length of the strip to the cutting of the laminations and the stacking of the cores. Güdel contributes the robot handling systems and the networking of the individual components among each other.

As there are several GEORG customers who cut ahead and stock laminations which they want to stack to a core with an offline system at a later stage, the focus for the first common projects will be the development of an offline system for the automatic stacking of transformer cores.

The laminations cut by the GEORG line and interim stored are picked up and stacked fully automatically by the Güdel robots. For the positioning, the robots achieve highest accuracies and beyond that accelerate the core stacking process significantly. The direct data transfer from the cutting line to the robot unit makes time-consuming manual processes redundant. By this data coupling, the new systems can be easily integrated into digitally networked environments and thus prepare the ground for industry 4.0 / IoT.

Bernd Peter Schmidt, Managing Director of the transformer business division at GEORG sees considerable benefits for his customers: „By the cooperation of our two companies – who both have an outstanding reputation in their respective field – we will deliver complete systems that make the stacking of the laminations much more effective. We make use of the vast experience and well-proven standard components of Güdel. This means for our customers: innovative and at the same time reliable technology with considerable cost advantages.“

Rocco Montalenti, General Manager Business Unit Technologies at Güdel relies on the market knowledge of GEORG: „For more than 30 years, GEORG manufactures transformer lines and has an impressive market share worldwide. The GEORG employees know the conditions in the transformer industry inside out. By this, we are able to elaborate single-source solutions together that are exactly adapted to the requirements of our common customers.“

The cooperation is in accordance with the philosophy of both companies to offer optimal solutions for smooth transformer production processes.

LumaSense Presents Survey Results on Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) Monitoring for Transformers

Dissolved gas analysis utilities become more sophisticated in transformer monitoring and changes in total cost of ownership

LumaSense Presents Survey Results on Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) Monitoring for Transformers

LumaSenseInc.com: Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) Monitoring for Transformers (Survey/Study)

LumaSense Technologies, Inc. has published results of its recently completed survey on dissolved gas analysis (DGA) monitoring for transformers. The survey suggests the electrical power industry is becoming more sophisticated at monitoring the performance of transformers, but still lacks cost effective alternatives to allow for a wide scale deployment of this monitoring. The targeted survey conducted from March-June 2012 by LumaSense Technologies, Inc. polled a small sample of power industry professionals from around the world (cf. LumaSense’s LTC / Transformer full survey results: http://www.slideshare.net/lumasenseinc/lumasense-ltc-transformer-survey-results ).

Among the insights of LumaSense’s survey on dissolved gas analysis monitoring for transformers (October 2012):

1. Dissolved-gas analysis (DGA) is becoming a preferred and vital part of utilities‘ asset management strategies as many of them seek to protect and extend the lives of their aging transformer fleets. Nearly 95 percent of respondents said online DGA is important to their monitoring programs.
2. Utilities and transformer makers are transitioning to technology that measures increased types of gases, which indicates the industry is taking steps toward more-sophisticated monitoring philosophies. For instance, most respondents (nearly 70 percent) said they are driving toward multiple-gas analysis of DGA measuring three to nine gases, as opposed to hydrogen only or a total combustible-gas (TCG) reading. Hydrogen and acetylene were selected as the two most-important gases/readings when reviewing DGA results for transformer main tanks.
3. Utilities still lack cost effective alternatives needed to monitor the performance of their transformer fleets: Most respondents indicated that at least 75 percent of transformers in their fleets are not supported by online DGA monitoring, and 65 percent of respondents said they sample transformer oil for lab analysis – one of the more-traditional methods for transformer monitoring – only once or twice a year. Price, onsite service and support and technology used are the three most important factors when considering which online DGA technology to use.

„Many things can go wrong in a year, which reinforces why more utilities are looking for online monitoring solutions versus their typical annual lab analysis,“ said Brett Sargent, LumaSense Vice President and General Manager, in response to the data regarding oil sampling practices. „Transformers are becoming more stressed and are driven harder today. When you combine that with the fact that many transformers are more than 35 years old, it is plain to see why it is so critical to install more online monitoring systems.“

LumaSense conducted the survey in support of the introduction of its SmartDGA line of online DGA products for load tap changers (LTCs) and transformers earlier this year ( http://www.lumasenseinc.com/EN/products/gas-monitoring/dga-for-transformers/ ). Survey respondents confirmed that transformer DGA, winding hot spot and LTC DGA were considered the three most important elements to monitor on transformers. All three elements can be measured using LumaSense Technologies instruments.

Designed to help electric utilities augment condition-based maintenance for transformer and LTC fleets, the SmartDGA line includes three instruments: SmartDGA Gauge, SmartDGA Guard and SmartDGA Guide. The Gauge is designed to monitor dissolved gas within transformer LTCs and is the only dedicated LTC dissolved gas analysis monitor on the market. The Guard and Guide are designed for online DGA monitoring of transformers. The entire line uses industry proven non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) technology to track gases, and is up to 50-percent less expensive than comparable solutions.

SmartDGA Guard e. g. provides reliable early warning diagnostics by dissolved gas analysis and monitoring to prevent transformer failures and can be installed in a matter of a few hours as opposed to days with present systems and can cost 50-percent less than other monitors. The multi-gas instrument measures hydrogen (H2), acetylene (C2H2) and carbon monoxide (CO) for incipient fault detection, as well as moisture. SmartDGA Guard requires no routine maintenance or scheduled calibration, can be mounted single valve or to two valves, and is available with fully integrated communications for Smart Grid deployment.

LumaSense’s SmartDGA solution for dissolved gas analysis monitoring for transformers also represents the power industry’s lowest total cost of ownership with up to 80 percent reductions, which allows utilities to reduce their asset monitoring budgets and capital expenditures while achieving widespread deployment across their transformer fleets ( http://www.lumasenseinc.com/EN/products/gas-monitoring/dga-for-transformers/ ).

LumaSense Introduces A New Line of Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) Monitors To Reduce Transformer Outages

SmartDGA? platform employs infrared gas-sensing technology, features unique hardware design that dramatically reduces installation time, costs significantly less than traditional DGA systems

LumaSense Introduces A New Line of Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) Monitors To Reduce Transformer Outages

LumaSense Introduces A New Line of Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) Monitors To Reduce Transformer Outages

LumaSense Technologies, Inc. introduced a new category of dissolved-gas analysis (DGA) monitors that allow electric utilities to more effectively reduce outages caused by faulty load tap changers (LTC“s) and transformers. At a cost significantly less expensive than comparable dissolved gas analysis monitors and a unique hardware design that drastically cuts down installation time, the LumaSense SmartDGA? platform ( http://www.lumasenseinc.com/EN/products/gas-monitoring/dga-for-transformers/smartdga.html ) can help utilities achieve widespread condition monitoring across generation, transmission and distribution assets.

Currently, less than 5 percent of transformers have condition-based online DGA monitoring systems, according to industry sources, and approximately 30 percent of all transformer failures in the United States are related to faulty LTCs. Widespread condition monitoring was unattainable using traditional technologies, largely due to high costs and excessive installation time.

Whereas other systems take days to install, LumaSense’s new dissolved gas analysis monitors (DGA) can be installed in a matter of hours. Additionally, SmartDGA monitors will cost up to 50-percent less than other monitors. The first monitor in the new line, the SmartDGA Gauge, will be the industry“s first dedicated online gas monitor for LTCs (Load Tap Changers). „We believe Smart Grid begins with an optimized supply network in the utility grid. This means having reliable assets in the generation, transmission and distribution networks globally,“ said Vivek Joshi, LumaSense CEO. „The SmartDGA Gauge provides valuable information about load tap changers on a real-time basis, which is very important if we“re serious about bringing concepts like Smart Grid to reality.“

SmartDGA Gauge is the newest addition to LumaSense“s line of solutions designed to provide utilities more information about how their transformers are functioning to accurately identify and mitigate faults supporting e. g. continuous online condition monitoring for load tap changers (LTC), ability to find coking and other faults, hassle-free installation, no routine maintenance or calibration, no requirement for carrier gas, ability to monitor ethylene and acetylene to assess LTC health, vertical or horizontal mounting and installation on single valve, dual valve or inline with filtration system.

The SmartDGA platform ( http://www.smartdga.com ) uses non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) sensing technology. LumaSense has used NDIR technology in more than 400,000 instruments over the past 40 years. This extensive experience is coupled with a proprietary algorithm developed in accordance with recent utility standards to analyze and report LTC conditions. The SmartDGA Gauge requires no carrier gas, no frequent calibrations and can be easily retrofitted to LTC“s to provide asset condition status.

LumaSense also provides a range of fiber optic temperature sensors (LumaSMART? and LumaSHIELD?) used to monitor winding hot spots, and continuous thermal imaging systems (ThermalSpection?) that remotely monitor substations. Utilities can now deploy these complementary technologies from LumaSense to predict and correct faults as a part of utility Condition Based Maintenance programs.
