Transformers are fundamental to an industrial or utility distribution or transmission system. This article will present basic transformer information that may help the reader appreciate how they operate and their many features.

Dissolved gas analysis for oil filled transformers

  • March 2012
  • Number of views: 70
  • Article rating: No rating
Article

The intent of this article is to provide an overview of the more common techniques used for dissolved gas analysis (DGA) of mineral oil. Types of gases created during transformer faults. There are several key gases produced during transformer faults. The type of gas and the quantity depends on the materials involved in the fault, the energy dissipated at the fault location and the solubility of the gases in oil.

Topics covered include:

  • Types of gases created during transformer faults
  • Methods of analysis and interpretation
  • Dornenburg ratios
  • Rogers ratios
  • Key gas method
  • Gas limits
  • Duval triangle
  • Analyzing other gases
  • Factors affecting gas concentrations and diagnosis

Aluminum-to-copper magnet wire winding conversions: Considerations for deciding whether wire area should be reduced

  • December 2011
  • Number of views: 278
  • Article rating: 5.0
Article

Although aluminum magnet wire theoretically can be converted to copper magnet wire of about 5/8 of the original wire area, in some cases this is not advisable. In others, it may result in a change in the magnetic strength of a coil or winding. In this article we will address the most common aluminum-to-copper magnet wire conversions as well as how to deal with whether the wire area should be reduced. Topics discussed include:

  • AC motor windings
  • Shunt fields
  • Series fields and interpoles
  • Transformer windings

EASA AR200: Guide For The Repair Of Power And Distribution Transformers

  • October 2011
  • Number of views: 278
  • Article rating: No rating
Booklet

The purpose of this document is to establish guidelines for each step of the repair of power transformers. It describes record keeping, tests,analysis, and general guidelines for the repair of power transformers. It is not intended to replace the manufacturer’s or the customer’s instructions or specifications. Transformers covered by this document are liquid-filled distribution or power transformers up to 10 MVA and 69 kV, and dry-type distribution and power transformers up to 5 MVA and 25 kV.

Replacing aluminum conductors with copper conductors in power and distribution transformers up to 10 MVA

Design issues and differences in material properties must be considered before proceeding

Article

There are many transformers in use rated up to 10 MVA (10,000 kVA) that were originally wound using aluminum conductors. When damaged or when selected for rewind, the aluminum conductor is often replaced with copper conductor. This is usually fairly routine when the conductor changes are undertaken within the bounds of the original transformer design. It is this type of change that will be reviewed in this article. It is not the intent to provide information here for the complete redesign of the transformer. It is important that all coil dimensions remain as close to the originals as possible. In carrying out the type of change outlined above, there are some design issues and differences in material properties that must be considered before proceeding with the work. Some of these issues are:

  • The effect that the difference in thermal characteristics of the materials will have on short term overload capability.
  • The effect that the different material properties will have on the original blocking and bracing system.
  • The effect that the difference in conductivity will have on conductor size.
  • The effect that the difference in conductor size may have on coil resistance and reactance.
  • The effect that the different conductor size may have on coil size (axial length) and hence its ability to withstand short circuits.
