Power transformers

Technical article: power transformer design and analysis with Flux download

CedratWed, 25 Mar 2015

Nowadays, it is important to optimise the efficiency of power transformers to make sure minimum losses are generated from the various physical phenomena. Finite element studies allow the transformer designers to accurately analyse the different losses to enhance the performance of their transformers. A few steady-state and transient tests allow the user to determine the electrical and mechanical constraints that the power transformer will have to endure in its life.
