In this document, we were forced to talk about the history of how the transformer originated and evolved to have the importance that today has. 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 to be such an important team require a necessary maintenance in order to see their status and have a clear idea of what might be happening on that team. Consequently, the persons in charge of carrying out these tests on the transformer must have up-to-date training and measuring equipment in order to be able to provide a good service to the client, thanks to this, laboratories are created to carry out highly efficient tests based on international standards and those that they are ruling 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 other people about what happened before, likewise the results will be recorded to have a data base of each transformer and be able to make a history of each transformer that has gone through the laboratory, and get a statistic of how many transformers come in, see what was the transformer failure, if it fulfilled the useful life or see if the transformer was contaminated by PCB's , since we will have to alert the control centers. Similarly when encountering defective transformers, fresh from the factory will have to inform the companies responsible for the product being delivered to the electric service, either because the transformer has already fulfilled the useful life or had a fault, the dismantling process must be done since we will be able to save some pieces of these transformers that will be able to serve us, as the replacement for other equipment that did not suffer a 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 that make the tests they interpret said results to make known what happens with the transformer, can do an infinite number of tests on the transformers but each one of them has a different purpose, depending on the customer's requirements and their economic possibility, it will be possible to carry out different tests and obtain 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 to which we will be analyzing and with the different exams we will find out what is the reason why the equipment began to fail, the more we investigate thoroughly the more we will go, we will find ourselves with more problems or with the cause of all the problems. To take charge of a team entails a huge responsibility to have complied with all the tests, to make reports and to give the pertinent information of the transformer to the client.
