Abstract: The aim of the project work is to protect the distribution transformer or any other power transformer, burning due to the overload. Normally most of the transformers are burning because of over load; hence by incorporating monitoring and control circuits, life of the transformer can be increased. In this project we designed a system in such a way that it will monitor the load of the transformer continuously and that information is transferred to the smart phone. These parameters are displayed on the phone. In the display unit we can view the continuous information of transformer i.e. due to what reason the transformer has failed, when the power is restored etc.,. With the help of this kind of system, the maintenance staff of the department can have a continuous vigilance over the transformer.
