Performance Characteristics of Oil Immersed Power Transformer
a. The low voltage winding of oil immersed type transformer adopts copper conductor when it is of small captivity and it generally adopts the cylinder structure of copper foil winding shaft. High voltage winding adopts multi-layer cylinder structure so that the ampere turn distribution of the winding is balanced, and the magnetic flux leakage is small, the mechanical strength is high, and the short-circuit resistance is strong.
b. The iron core and winding are respectively tightened. Generally, the body adopts the cylinder structure of copper foil winding. The low voltage winding of oil immersed type transformer adopts copper conductor when it is of small captivity Low voltage leads and other fastening parts are equipped with self-locking locknuts and adopt non lifting structure. It can withstand the shock of transportation.
c. Vacuum drying method is adopted for coil and core. The oil type transformer adopts the technology of vacuum oil filtering and filling to minimize the moisture in the transformer.
d. Corrugated sheet is used for oil tank. It has a breathing function to compensate for oil volume changes due to temperature changes. Therefore, there is no oil conservator of the product, obviously reducing the height of the transformer.
e. Since the corrugated sheet replaces the oil conservator, the transformer oil is isolated from the outside world. In this way, it can effectively prevent the entry of oxygen and water which leads to the decrease of insulation performance.
f. According to the above five performances, there is no need that the oil of the oil immersed type transformer should be replaced in normal operation. The maintenance cost of the transformer is greatly reduced, and the service life of the transformer is prolonged.
