How the DGA Matrix works
Interpreting DGA results takes time and expert knowledge, but the true challenge is that no single test can determine all possible failure modes. For the clearest diagnosis it is best to analyse against multiple methods, but as each involves different thresholds and dependencies, this only adds to the complexity.
The DGA Matrix web-app from Camlin Energy draws on our decades of experience to answer this challenge, resulting in a free tool that provides the deepest possible dive into your data, enabling you to make a clear, confident diagnosis.
The DGA Matrix from Camlin Energy:
- Automatically incorporates internal rules to enable those methods that depend on the results of other methods (e.g. Duval Triangles)
- Incorporates rules for minimum gas concentration levels below which the transformer is considered to be operating normally
- Translates diagnostic results of all industry methods into the standardized semantic of the fault types: ND, PD, S, T1, O, C, T2, T3, DT, D2, D1
- Integrates decades of experience with DGA interpretation, especially for methods that are not 100% defined and leave room for interpretation, ie) CO2/CO method
The DGA Matrix can work with data from any kind of oil sampling
source, including from online DGA monitoring systems of
power transformers, laboratory DGA tests of transformer oil and portable
dissolved gas analyzers.
The DGA Matrix is compatible with all modern browsers and may
also be saved as a desktop or phone app from the browser, ensuring detailed
diagnosis is only ever a click away.
