Evaluation Study of Performance Analysis & Characteristics of Amorphous Core Transformer for Electrical Distribution System

Authors(1) :-Prof. Kanchan Shriprakash Patil

Nowadays traditional use of other materials such as Al, copper etc increases the transmission losses, cost and reduce the efficiency but on the other hand amorphous core material design that reduces losses upto 25-40 percent improves the efficiency and reduce the cost of production. This paper describes the Energy savings & comparison chart with conventional transformers & similar rating show that iron losses are 30% of the CRGO Transformers. Total owning cost (TOC) is reduced by improvement in environments factor socials & economics costs of generation related to CO2, SO2, & other greenhouse gases emissions. This paper describes the performance characteristics and analysis of amorphous hexa core materials used for transformer in distribution cases with magnetisation characteristics. It describes the various design and advantages of amorphous core transformer with simple structured core transformer.
