Abstract: Whenever there is any contamination or deterioration of transformer oil, it can lead to tripping of the transformer or breakdown of the transformer or failure of the transformer and may even result in fire or explosion causing extensive damage to life and property. Therefore, it would be of great advantage to have a checking and reporting system to detect problems in the early stages so that they can be fixed and both damage and cost can be reduced. The current paper proposes a system to enable condition monitoring of transformer oil using IOT, with an option to generate conditional alert. Wireless Sensor Networks and a Raspberry Pi board is used to monitor the oil using the RF data encountered and alert notifications are sent via push messages.

Keywords: Transformer oil, condition monitoring, WSN, IOT, Raspberry Pi
