In this document, we were forced to talk about the history of how the transformer originated and evolved to the importance it has today. Therefore, thanks to this equipment we can reduce the transmission voltage to have electricity in our homes and enjoy the comforts that exist today. The transformers being such an important equipment require a necessary maintenance in order to be able to see its state and have a clear idea of what could be happening in that equipment. Consequently, the people in charge of carrying out these tests to the transformer must have updated training and measuring equipment in order to give a good service to the client. Thanks to this, laboratories are created in charge of carrying out high efficiency tests based on international standards and those that are in force in the country. These tests have a record sheet where technicians are forced to write or inform if there was a novelty or an unexpected event to inform others about what happened previously, likewise the results will be recorded to have a database of each transformer and be able to make a history of each transformer that has passed through the laboratory, and get a statistic of how many transformers enter, see what was the transformer failure, if it fulfilled the useful life or see if the transformer was contaminated by PCB's, since we must alert the control centers. Similarly to find defective transformers, just left the factory will have to inform the companies in charge of the product that are delivering the electrical service, either because the transformer has fulfilled the useful life or had a failure must be done the dismantling process because we can save some parts of these transformers that can serve us, as the replacement for other equipment that did not suffer major damage. It is important to emphasize the service of the technicians since their work is compared with that of a doctor since they diagnose the transformer with the results they make of the tests they interpret those results to make known what happens with the transformer, an infinite number of tests can be made to the transformers but each one of them has a different purpose, depending on the demands of the client and its economic possibility will be able to make different tests and get a clearer idea of what happens to the transformer. In the same way to have a clearer idea of the transformer we can compare it with a sick person whom we will be analyzing and with the different examinations we will be finding out which is the reason why the equipment began to fail, the more we investigate in depth the more we will go, we will be finding with more problems or with the cause of all the problems. Taking care of a team carries with it an enormous responsibility to have fulfilled all the tests, to make reports and to give the pertinent information of the transformer to the client.
