Determining the current prevailing conditions in the transformer is still a challenge and an attempt is made for meeting the same challenge. In this paper a novel system based on fuzzy logic is developed which considers thermal, electrical and mechanical conditions prevailing in the transformer and gives the critical status of the transformer at an aggregate. The developed system also facilitates to give the critical condition of Paper thermal, Oil thermal, Partial discharge, Electrical arching, Dissolved gas analysis(DGA), Break down voltage and sweep frequency response analysis(SFRA) individually so that corresponding preventive measures can be taken by the technologists. This system consists of 10 fuzzy logic controllers whose connections are made by considering technical conditions and reasons, the corresponding rule bases of these fuzzy logic controllers were developed by considering various standards and experience of TIFAC CORE in NIT-Hamirpur. This fuzzy logic based system is tested for various transformers and found that it is highly précised in classifying the critical statues of any transformer as well as all identifying the current prevailing conditions.
