Amorphous core material offers lower losses for distribution transformers

  Traditionally transformer cores have been constructed of grain orientated steel alloys, but a new material which has an amorphous structure is being used increasingly in distribution transformers. The material offers advantages over traditional materials and transformers using the core material are being used in a wide range of applications. Distribution transformers constitute the largest […]

Voltage and var support in electric power systems

  The present environment for the operation of electric power systems (EPS) is complicated by environmental, economic as well as societal constraints. As a result EPS operate often close to their limits while trying to minimise costs and keep the quality of supply according to standards. The picture is complicated further by new types of […]
