The Tap Changer Analyzer & Winding Ohmmeter RMO25TD instrument is designed for winding resistance measurement of inductive objects, and for a tap changer analysis. The RMO25TD instrument is based on the state of the art technology, using the most advanced switch mode technology available today. The RMO25TD instrument is accurate (0,1%), powerful (up to 25 A) and lightweight (9,5 kg / 20.9 lbs). It generates a true DC ripple free current with automatically regulated measurement and discharging circuit.
The RMO25TD instrument can perform a simple, quick and reliable transformer on-load tap changer condition assessment. This instrument enables measurements of a winding resistance in every tap position, current ripple values (percentage of a current drop during a tap change) and transition times during the tap changes. Problems with a connection, contacts, and selector/diverter switch operation (tap change with interruption) can be detected with these measurements.
The DV-Win software enables control and observation of the test process, as well as saving and analyzing the results on a PC. It provides a test report, arranged in a selectable form as an Excel spreadsheet, PDF, Word, or ASCII format. The software provides an OLTC (tap changer) condition assessment through analysis of the graphs representing dynamic resistance values during the tap changer transitions.
Additionally, the DV-Win measures and calculates the OLTC transition time, the ripple and the winding resistance for each tap changing operation. It also enables the recording of tap changer motor current, which is used for detecting motor and mechanical problems.
The software can also perform the calculations necessary for the “Heat Run” test.
The standard interface is USB. RS232 is optional.
