BPL Global Ltd. (BPLG) has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with Arizona Public Service Co. (APS) for APS' patented Transformer Oil Analysis and Notification (TOAN) technology.

In combination with its Serveron line of transformer monitors, BPLG says it will utilize the TOAN technology to enable utilities to improve reliability, increase productivity and reduce capital costs by accessing diagnostics to extend transformer life. The integration of TOAN into BPLG's fleet of transformer monitors will allow utility asset managers to better monitor the health of power transformers, the company adds.

TOAN will be integrated into BPLG's TM View software system, combining TM View's visualization and management capabilities with TOAN's artificial neural net computing engine to turn large amounts of data into actionable information.

"Arizona's extreme temperatures and historical growth require us to constantly evaluate and invest in our electric system; protecting that system is vital," says Don Lamontagne, APS engineering manager and TOAN inventor. "We developed TOAN to protect our transformer fleet, manage our investment and ensure a safe, reliable electric system for our customers. In the years to come, we expect TOAN to make similar contributions across the entire industry."
