Transformer stations should never lose power, unless struck by lightning or interrupted by a static electrical storm. If you find that one of your company's power stations seems to be losing power frequently, or that it just is not producing the amount of voltage it should be, it may be time to call a transformer repair service. They provide field dressing and undressing services for transformers, which includes all of the following.
The technicians enter your power station, disconnect all of the wires and cables from the problematic transformer, and then remove that transformer. It is loaded onto a flatbed truck and secured for transport. Anything that could come loose and flap in the wind down the highway is also secured. Meanwhile, the wires and cables that were connected to it are secured above ground to make sure that no one in the area gets electrocuted in the absence of the transformer.
If you have a new transformer or a repaired transformer to take the place of the one you just had removed, the technicians can install it for you on the same day. In fact, it would be beneficial to your customers to have a "fresh" transformer at the ready. Power is then interrupted by just a few hours, instead of days. During certain times of the year, this is vitally important to keep power flowing.
The technicians will unload the new or used transformer from the truck, install it, and connect all of its corresponding wires and cables. They are, in essence, "dressing" the transformer with its usual "apparel" and apparatuses. Before they leave, they notify your company representatives that the transformer is "online" and you can start the power flow to it. The technicians check the gauges and record what they say to make sure there is enough electrical flow and everything is working properly.
Checking in Weekly
After your field dressing and undressing services are complete, your field reps should check the newly-installed transformer weekly. It helps to verify that it is working and producing the power needed for your consumers. In the event that something is awry again, do not hesitate to call the same repair company. The repair technicians can help locate the source of the problems, and fix it with minimal downtime to power supply. Otherwise, if everything is working normally, then the weekly check-ins just verify that fact.
