Abstract
Transformers are important elements in the process of transmission and distribution of electricity. Transformer is one of the vital and costliest components of electrical industry. As large number of distribution transformers are installed over a wide area, monitoring and maintenance of these transformers is an important issue. Therefore this paper presents the system which monitor different parameters of distribution transformer and these data are continuously updated on to a webpage using IOT. If any abnormality occurs, the system sends alert messages to the concerned person and an electronic relay operates. As the inductive load increases there will be a decrease in power factor, therefore this system incorporates a power factor improvement mechanism by switching capacitor banks. The main objective of this project is to develop a system which will help the utilities in the protection of transformer and identify problems before any catastrophic failure.
