The first AI driven platform to evaluate health status
of large power transformers
What is RONIN AI?
RONIN AI is our cloud platform for the real-time calculation and health monitoring of large power transformers to prevent abrupt power outages due by machine faults and to predict manufacturing power needs.
RONIN AI is a unique digital predictive maintenance solution shifting popular health indexing approach into a scientific and validated machine learning model.
Power Transformers Health Index as Multi Purpose Strategy
CIGRE A2.44 (630) defines transformer health index as “an overall indicator describing the condition status of a transformer that the decision maker can use to define and prioritize the required action”.
CIGRE A2.49 (761) suggests that it can be used “to identify transformers that are most likely to fail on a timescale to plan intervention.”
A well-designed health index can convert strategic condition monitoring data in to useful remarks that can accelerate decision making. We use it to highlight and rank transformers on the basis of their health status within a fleet. It helps in determining asset reliability and intervention priority based on technical urgency.
A health index should not be used to mask alarms generated out of bad condition monitoring data.
CIGRE is a collaborative global community committed to the world’s leading knowledge development programme for the creation and sharing of power system expertise.
Why using Artificial Intelligence on power transformers?
An adequate asset maintenance and management strategy is the only key to avoid failures, unplanned downtime and, above all, extensive damage related to unexpected outages.
Just think of what happened in February 2021, when the great cold paralyzed the energy production and electricity grids of Texas, not only killing dozens and blocking most of the activities but revealing the vulnerability of essential infrastructures and the lack of investment towards a resilient network.

Is 80% accuracy level enough?
If you build a machine learning model that fits “too much” to the data you will probably get a model with a very high coefficient of determination. However, a model that adapts too much to a specific set of data, following every slightest variation, is then not very generalizable and with low predictive power.
In statistics, these are termed as over-fitting problems.
We trained our system to reach 80% of accuracy, because we simply do not want to overfit!
This is satisfactory for predictive modeling and very good for real case application because it’s not overfitting on a particular sample of power transformers.
Benefits of industrial transformers health indexing
Industrial transformers are strategic units that can improve the production capacities of metal processing industries such as steel, aluminium, copper, etc.
Industrial transformers are categorized as furnace and convertor transformers. A furnace transformer provides the electrical arc needed to melt the raw materials inside the furnance, such as in iron & steel industries. It is essential for an asset manager to identify and maintain the overall health and reliability of such transformers to avoid unplanned downtime and compromise production capacity.
Trend analysis and asset comparison
RONIN AI allows service engineers and asset managers a quick review of their asset management decisions. This assists them in prioritizing actions and recommendations for the best allocation of budget and resources.
Ronin AI provides health index score for each testing date of the same asset. This allows the asset manager to use the trend analysis feature for individual asset or for comparison purposes.
Type and range of asset
Ronin AI can analyse mineral oil filled transformers rated between 500 kVA and 800 MVA. Based on functionalities and voltage class, they can be power, substation, step-up, step-down, shunt-reactors, industrial, furnace, traction, and auto-transformers.
Manufacturers can use AI driven ranking tool for better completion of their asset management tasks with major budget saving on time and cost of operations. They can use such strategies to redefine the technical and economical parameters of their asset management actions with greater transparency. Conversely, this will improve their market performance, client satisfaction, and overall business expansion.
