Electrical Machine Insulation

In electrical machines, the insulation system must withstand the high electrical stresses and severe mechanical stresses induced by the magnetic field of the moving rotor. In machines, multi-turn windings are put in narrow armature slots, which are usually grounded. Rotating machine stator insulation construction is divided into principal types: Random…


Insulating Materials for Power & Distribution Transformers

The insulating materials used in power and distribution transformers must possess the following properties: Good electrical properties to withstand the power frequency (50 Hz) voltages and impulse overvoltages. Good mechanical properties to withstand fabrication and handling during manufacture and electromagnetic forces during overload, short circuit, and normal operating conditions. Good…


Transformer Noise

When you crossed across a transformer in your locality, you might have listened to the humming noise coming from the transformer. It is quite annoying if the transformer is located in a residential area. The cause of transformer noise is the magnetostriction. We have written an article on Magnetostriction topic.…


Distribution & Power Transformers

Distribution Transformers It is used to step down the distribution voltage to a level suitable for utilisation¬†purposes at the consumer’s premises. Distribution Transformer has its secondary terminals directly connected to the consumer’s terminal. They remain in operation all the 24 hours a day. Distribution Transformers have good voltage regulation. Distribution…
