Carlos Carvalho, Director of Technology at EFACEC, discusses the benefits of software modelling in the design and test of transformers.
The transformers required for wind power and solar DPV require special design features to meet the challenging operating conditions. The industry today has developed different types of transformers for the application.
The article focuses on basic design changes and materials being addressed to bushing apparatus used on power transformers in high voltage substations.
The smart transformers are used to provide additional flexibility to control power distribution networks, thereby, facilitating the smooth conversion of AC to DC and DC to AC, as per requirement. Smart transformer caters to a wide variety of applications, ranging from alternative power generation to traction locomotives, power grid and electric industries, and others…
The subject of deciding such as the most appropriate method and conditions for accurately measuring the noise level of a transformer has been discussed in this article...
This paper explains importance of specifications, design reviews and life management concepts for reliable, uninterrupted and intended application of transformers throughout the life cycle. The specification forms the basis on which the manufacturer designs, manufactures and tests a transformer…- S. Kundu, P M Yadav, Ratnesh Talesara
With the increasing use of Dry type transformers, it is important for the utilities and the regulators to have norms for losses for Dry type transformers – as we have norms for oil immersed transformers in form of star labelling programme... - Sailesh Purohit, Thomas Lim, Radoslaw Szewczyk
Generator, transmission and distribution transformers are some of the most critical and expensive assets in a power network. - Setu Vora
