UPPTC Ltd, located in Uttar Pradesh India, has shut down sectors of the substation due to a 500 MVA transformer fire in the Sector 148. The fire is reported to have started Wednesday, August 19th.
Reports indicate the substation sectors will be shut down for over a month while the transformer is replaced and the new transformer is fully integrated. Reports also suggest that there should be no power disruption during this process, as areas the transformers supplied will be given to an additional supply line from Pali.
Overloading, aging, and poor cable contact can cause a transformer to overheat, often resulting in a fire disaster. As a result, a temperature monitoring system is the ideal solution to mitigate and prevent such disasters.
The Senkox HSD Linear Hot Spot Detection System offers unparalleled versatility, accuracy, and functionality in managing transformer safety, The Senokox HSD Linear Heat Sensors can be installed don the outer shell of the transformer by using a magnetic mounting kit.
