In this work Transformer Health Monitoring System(THMS) has been Distribution of transformer in most of the vital aspect, an any electrical distribution network system and further it needs some special attentinon and care to monitor. This THMS monitor the health condition of the distribution transformer network in real time. The huge number of transformers are distributed over a large area itís difficult to control the system condition manually of each and every single transformer. So automatic data acquisition and transformer condition monitoring has been an important part. The implementation of a mobile embedded system to the monitor load currents, over voltage, transformer oil level and oil temperature. System on-line monitoring integrates Global Service Mobile (GSM) Modem, with the single microcontroller chip and sensors. It has been installed at the distribution of the transformer site itself. The output values of the sensors are continued to process and recorded in the system memory. System programmed with some special predefined condition to check abnormality automatically. If there is any abnormality on the system, the GSM module will track to send the short messages to the designated mobile containing information about the abnormality according to the predefined instructions. This mobile system network will help us optimally utilize transformer to identify the problems before any damage or failure has been occurs. This system will be an advanced step to move forwared an automation by shrinking the human value. As it is a wireless communication system, there is no need of large number of cables which are huge amount of cost. Thus THMS offers a more improved transformer monitoring.
