Abstract: Lessons Learned from Online Bushing Health Monitoring

AEP has been using online bushing health monitoring for several years.  AEP will discuss the pros and cons of bushing monitoring.  This will include lessons learned on benefits and use cases, failure preventions (general experiences from two sites), techniques found for improving equipment and software, and future technology improvements.  We are looking for open dialogue with conference participants on their experiences, any questions, and comments after the presentation.
