abb smartgas leak testing for transformers

The transformer bushing is one of the most critical components of a power transformer and one of the major initiators of transformer failures. It is assumed that on average the risk of a large power transformer failure is up to 1% per year. Furthermore, it is assumed that 10% of transformer failures result in a serious fire.
