This document describes the application of the RCM - Reliability-Centered Maintenance (MCC – Manutenção Centrada na Confiabilidade) methodology to power transformers immersed in liquid insulation, such as mineral or vegetal oil. All standardized RCM phases are documented, including:
The study is the result of a Pilot Project from a Joint Working Group (B3.01)
from Study Committees CE-B3 (Substations), CE-B5 (Protection and Automation) and
CE-A2 (Transformers) of Cigré-Brazil. The project aimed to research the
application of RCM to large power transformers, and to serve as reference to the
application of the methodology to other types of electric equipments.
