transformer for induced overvoltage with partial unit was originally manufactured by General
discharge measurement with 100% loading Electric in 1965. Very few companies have the
success. With this new installation, VTCU is now technology to perform this type of work on a

Recently VTC completed a project that included
four units that were 15 MVA, 16 KV. These units
were for a driver plant for Atlas Pipeline.
What’s more noteworthy, these units were
the first units used in a pipeline project to be

This module will allow monitoring on-site or
from a remote location. VTC is in the process of
developing next generations of this device that
will provide even more options for monitoring,
analyizing and diagnostics for transformers to
prolong the life of the unit.

Additionally, An Air Pallet System was recently VTC Hosts it’s Annual Rep Conference

useful information related to VTC and the
transformer industry. The event was a big
success and included some informative topics
