Power transformers provide a vital link between the generation and distribution of produced energy. Such static equipment is subjected to abuse during operation in generation and distribution stations and leads to catastrophic failures. This paper reviewed the techniques in the field of condition monitoring of power transformers in recent years. Transformer monitoring and diagnosis are the effective techniques for preventing the eventual failures and contributing to ensure the plan’s reliability. This paper provided a survey on the existing techniques for monitoring, diagnosis, condition evaluation, maintenance, life assessment and possibility of extending the life of the existing assets of power transformers with be appropriate classifications. Thus, this survey could help researchers through providing better techniques for condition monitoring of power transformers.
