Distribution Transformer, Faults, PIC 16F877 Microcontroller

Distribution transformers of substation are one of the most important equipment in power system network. Because of the large number of transformers and various components over a wide area in power systems, the data acquisition, condition monitoring, automatic controlling are the important issues. This project presents design and implementation of automatic control circuits using power line communication to monitor as well as diagnose condition of transformers, like over voltage, over currents, temperature rise and oil level. The suggested power line communication monitoring system will help to detect internal faults as well as external faults of transformer and also diagnose these faults with the help of desired range of parameters which is setting by programmer.
