The IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) Malaysia Chapter collaborated with TNBR Labs to organize a Webinar entitled “Operation and Life Management of Power Transformer”. The talk was held online via Cisco WebEx and was attended by around 315 participants.

In this talk, Ir. Ts. Dr. Mohd Aizam Talik (Head of Advanced Diagnostic Services TNBR) started with a quick introduction of transformer asset maintenance. Next, he explained about the importance of condition based maintenance followed by transformer maintenance strategies and transformer life management. Dr Aizam also shared several case studies related to how condition based maintenance was used to prevent transformer failure.

It is hoped that the experience and knowledge shared during the webinar are beneficial to all participants.
