Hitachi ABB Power Grids Launches Open and Scalable Ecosystem for Digitalization of Transformers
The manufacturer-agnostic, TXpertTM Ecosystem to enable millions of dollars in savings through greater flexibility, efficiency and resilience in electricity networks

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, Sept 23, 2020 - (JCN Newswire) - Hitachi ABB Power Grids is delighted to launch the TXpertTM Ecosystem for the digitalization of transformers. The ecosystem is designed to drive data-driven intelligence and decision making in the operations and maintenance of transformers and power grids. It is a complete suite of products, software, services, and solutions that work together and have the capability to integrate with new and existing digital equipment from other manufacturers.

"Building on deep experience, we have pioneered the scalable TXpertTM Ecosystem to bring together customers, partners and industry peers on an open platform developed on strict cybersecurity standards, enabling simple steps in their digitalization journey", said Bruno Melles, Managing Director, Transformers business unit at Hitachi ABB Power Grids. "By giving transformers the knowledge and intelligence derived from designing and servicing thousands of transformers it will help to reduce costs and risks, optimize operations, extend life-expectancy and enhance environmental performance, enabling a sustainable energy future".

Powering informed decisions and saving millions of dollars

As per a recent CIGRE report(2), the top three locations of faults in transformers are its windings, tap-changers and bushings. The TXpertTM Ecosystem provides options to mitigate all of these. For example, failure of bushings can lead to transformer tank rupture and explosions, resulting in millions of dollars in repairs and settlement costs for a utility, while the cost of replacing a high-voltage bushing would be a few percentage points of this3). Using TXpertTM Ecosystem solutions for digital asset management of bushings, the real-time status of the bushing health can be monitored and corrective action taken before failure probability becomes high.

About the TXpertTM Ecosystem

At the heart of the ecosystem is the TXpertTM Hub from Hitachi ABB Power Grids - a data monitoring and diagnostics device that also provides connectivity. Designed as an open platform, it is capable of integrating multiple sets of data from TXpertTM Ready sensors from diverse manufacturers, simplifying the digitalization of transformers in compliance with modern communication and stringent cybersecurity standards. Data and intelligence from the TXpertTM Hub can be accessed locally and if required from cloud-based solutions.

TXpertTM Enabled transformers can be augmented with Asset Performance Management (APM) solutions from Hitachi ABB Power Grids. As an enterprise level software solution, the APM can be used for individual, multiple or large fleets of transformers.

Supporting customers putting the data generated from TXpertTM for smart decision making, associated remote and advanced services can provide virtual site management, life assessments, robotic inspections and transformer care service agreements.

Customers can flexibly deploy the ecosystem in new transformers or in transformers of their existing fleet from Hitachi ABB Power Grids and other manufacturers, with customized TXpertTM solutions as per their specific requirements.

Hitachi ABB Power Grids supports the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the TXpertTM Ecosystem will contribute to facilitating access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.

Hitachi ABB Power Grids has been pioneering transformer technology for over a century, collaborating with global committees in setting technology standards and protocols. Enhanced by Hitachi's proven record in advanced digital technologies, Hitachi ABB Power Grids is creating customer value through intelligent solutions for electricity networks.
