Distribution Transformer is used for providing electricity to the consumers. It provides the required voltage to the consumers by stepping down the voltage in distribution side. So, monitoring the distribution transformer is the unapproachable task for the electricity department to monitor those transformers regularly. This paper provides a solution for reducing the man power in monitoring of the transformer in online by analyzing various parameters like voltage, current, temperature, oil level by using various sensors. The sensors are used to monitoring the various parameters in transformer with the help of microcontroller. The IOT server is used to receive the data of operation and abnormal condition of transformer, and these data are stored in the computer server with help of particular web address.
