Field experience on smart health indexing of arc furnace transformer fleets

Steel industries are leaning towards the use of electric arc furnaces to reduce their global CO2 burden. These electric arcs are equipped with built-for-purpose furnace transformers that often operate under severe conditions. Evidently, failure of such strategic assets will lead to property damage, production losses, and business interruption. Furthermore, huge condition monitoring data needs to be generated and analysed to maintain such transformers. But the real challenge is to convert this data in to useful decision. With the introduction of machine learning (ML), asset managers can now easily synthesize this data in to useful indicators, such as a health index, that ascertain the reliability of such assets. This information accelerates and supports their maintenance plans on a well-defined time-scale.
