Power Transformer Design and Manufacturing

Share

The meeting will be in two parts: 

1. Transformer Design and Design Parameters- The basics of Transformer Design. The presentation will explain how a transformer designer interprets parameters such as MVA, lightning Impulse, Switching impulse, Percentage Impedance supplied by a customer.  See details below.

2: Transformer Manufacturing Processes -  Industry wide manufacturing process to build a transformer in the shop floor. Processes will cover Core Construction, Insulation, Windings, Core and Coil, Processing, Tanking, Testing and Shipping. See details below.

Agenda

Part 1: Transformer Design and Design Parameters
Abstract:
The presentation will be on the Basic of Transformer Design. The presentation will explain how a transformer designer interprets parameters such as MVA, lightning Impulse, Switching impulse, Percentage Impedance supplied by a customer. It will touch on Power rating [MVA], Core, Rated voltages, Insulation Coordination, Short-circuit Impedance, Short-circuit Forces, Loss evaluation, Temperature limits, Cooling, Sound Level .. etc. It will also explain overload and life expectancy of a transformer as well when Delta winding is needed in Wye-Wye connection. The presentation will answer why in North America we like to regulate from low voltage side whereas in Europe regulates from high voltage side

Part 2: Transformer Manufacturing Processes
Abstract: The presentation will be on the Industry wide manufacturing process to build a transformer in the shop floor. Processes will cover Core Construction, Insulation, Windings, Core and Coil, Processing, Tanking, Testing and Shipping. Some of the hold-points during the processes will be explained as well what a customer should look into while doing factory inspection. The presentation will also cover reconnection both in LV and HV, LTC Tap changer both in tank and separate tank, Lead works.
