Overview & Energy Optimization of Power Distribution Transformers

A. Bhatia, B.E.

Losses in electric supply systems are minimized by transmitting electricity at high voltage. Distribution transformers function to step-up & step-down voltage in transmitting power economically from the power station to the final user. Practical power transformers, although highly efficient, are not perfect devices. Transformer losses in power distribution networks can exceed 3% of the total electrical power generated, which is estimated to total 140 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year in the US.

This 4-hour course provides an overview of transformers and summarizes the key energy conservation measures pertaining to selection, application and operation of power transformers. The theoretical equations are kept minimum and the basic aspects are discussed wherever deemed fit.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
