Based on the PI System
The Condition Monitoring System (CMS), which has been developed together with Amitec, is based on technologies from the PI System from OSIsoft, and SQL Server business intelligence software from Microsoft.
Grid power flows, voltages, currents, SF6 pressures and transformer gas development come from supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and on-line condition-monitoring devices. Nominal values, manufacturing date, device defects, defect-severity categorizing and measurements from device service actions come from the off-line asset-management system.
The PI Server processes both on-line and off-line measurements, which are combined in the PI Asset Framework so that measurement tags are linked with a corresponding asset element.
The CMS system provides displays for each element, but only one display is needed for each type of asset. When users change from transformer 1 to transformer 2, the display stays same but the values are updated.
