An electrical device used for transferring electrical energy between two or more circuits through electromagnetic induction is known as transformer. Transformers are commonly used in applications which require the conversion of AC voltage from one voltage level to another. Medium voltage transformer is a static electrical device that transfers electrical energy by inductive coupling between its core winding. A varying current is supplied in the primary winding which creates a varying magnetic flux in the transformer's core leading to a varying magnetic flux through the secondary winding. This varying magnetic flux produces a varying electromotive force (also called emf) or voltage in the secondary winding. Transformers are used either to vary the relative voltage of the circuits or to isolate them or both. Medium voltage transformer is an essential part of the power network responsible for transmission, distribution, and utilization of electrical energy. Availability and longevity of these transformers have a major impact on grid reliability and profitability.
The size of a power transformer is determined by three factors; primary or input voltage, the secondary or output voltage and the load capacity measured in kVA. Of these three factors, the amount of power that can be transferred or the capacity rating is often the key parameter rather than the voltage. Additionally, the voltage rating is often used to describe different classes of power transformers, such as extra high voltage 345 to 765 kV; high voltage 115 to 230 kV; medium voltage 34.5 to 115 kV and distribution voltage 2.5 to 35 kV.
Oil immersed transformer is the most common type of medium voltage transformer. This transformer is used in most of the regular power distribution systems in substations or other distribution solutions. The dry-type transformer is higher in cost when compared with liquid-filled transformers although some characteristics of this transformer can tribute to choosing it as an alternative for liquid-filled transformers. The compact construction and the low maintenance costs offers an exciting view when the two types are compared. Due to the fact that there is no cooling fluid required like in the liquid-filled transformer there is no possible danger to the environment and this makes this type of transformer most suitable for green areas. These transformers are usually used for power distribution for residential areas and for industrial and commercial purposes. US is one of the largest market and holds the largest installed base of medium voltage transformers. Electric utilities accounts for approximately two-thirds of the medium voltage transformers market, with industrial and commercial segments accounting for about one third.
