Customer SAVE
REAL Services' customers are engaged in producing manufacturing power, distribution, instrument, and specialty transformers.

REAL Services' LTC3 pioneered a Revolutionary and truly Predictive / Proactive testing methods and data interpretation for determining the operational heath and integrity of Electrical Transmission & Distribution Equipment.  Rather than simply testing Insulating Oil Condition; NOW Transformers, Load Tap Changers (LTC), Oil Filled Circuit Breakers (OCB), Voltage Regulators and other T&D Equipment Condition & Reliability can be monitored, trended and quantified.; provided by REAL Services along with our exclusive SAVE REPORT which provided Return On Investment and Cost Justification for your T&D PM Program.

Electrical Transmission & Distribution

Case Study #109

These results are obtained, by REAL Services' patented testing procedures, from a first time sample tested due to erratic performance.  Load Tap Changer; Transformer 134; CDWL-T134-446-01; is one of two-(2) main LTC of the municipality.

Recommendation: Condition CRITICAL; Schedule this unit for maintenance action. Specifically, secure mounting hardware and reduce water contamination to eliminate electrical discharge inside the LTC.


Although the equipment particle concentration (EPC) of 1,693 is within acceptable limits for this type of equipment, analytical results show a high concentration of tektites. These particles are generated from the electrical discharge at the contact.  This image displays the Tektites (i.e. the Sparks) from electrical discharge.

Note: This was a FIRST time this equipment has been tested.


Upon opening of Load Tap Changer; Transformer 134; CDWL-T134-446-01, contact mounting hardware found to have play and movable by hand. Equipment show signs of electrical discharge and arcing of internal components.

Secondary Damage, Property Damage and Service Interruption was minimized.  Downtime was minimized.  Maintenance scheduled and performed during holiday slow period.

LTC3 optimized equipment performance and savings for the utility, customers and investors.


Original Component Savings:                                N/P
Secondary Damage Savings:                                N/P
Business Interruption:                                              N/P
Property Damage:                                                   N/P
Rush Shipping Cost Savings:                                 N/P
Overtime Repair Savings:                                       N/P                                     Total SAVINGS:   $ Not Provided

Now available one simple test to determine the condition of T&D Equipment Reliability based on the that equipment.

- NO special sampling containers or expensive test.

- One-(1) test to determines the precursors for Coking, Filming, Electrical Shorts and even the break down of Paper Insulation & Plastic Insulation.


....    Raising T&D Equipment Condition  Testing to a Higher Power.
