How to Select a Distribution Transformer for Industrial Applications
A distribution transformer is a variant of a transformer that undertakes the last stage of voltage transformation in a distribution grid. It converts the voltage passed in the transmission line suitable for household and commercial needs which are around 240 & 433 volts. They are usually pole-mounted or plinth mounted depending on how the wiring is laid out. Unlike other transformers, it is designed specifically for step-down voltages suitable for the required application. They have an important role to play in various industrial, commercial, and the domestic sector where it provides the perfect voltage power supply to all connected devices. This variant is designed such that the coils at the primary end are more than the ones at the secondary end. Based on the load or equipment of the concerned industry/application, the capacity of the distribution transformer is decided to ensure adequate power voltage is provided. The general principle of selecting a distribution transformer for industrial application is fairly the same as any other variants of the transformer. However, we will reiterate the points to ensure there are no doubts over it.
- Determine the load capacity from the primary source and find the transformer that can bear that load without any issues.
- Confirm the voltage requirement of connected points to ensure the transformer can adjust the power levels accordingly.
- Choose a device with the best build quality and multiple safety features such as fire retardancy and corrosion resistance, etc.
- It should be able to handle varying load conditions while maintaining top levels of efficiency at all times.
- The windings need to be made of high-grade metal and wound tightly to avoid iron or copper loss.
