The Main Function of Step-up Transformer

1. The introduction of step-up transformer

The function of the transformer in the power system is to change the voltage to facilitate the transmission of power. After the voltage is boosted by the step-up transformer, the line loss can be reduced, the economy of power transmission can be improved, and the purpose of long-distance power transmission can be achieved.The step-down transformer can change the high voltage into all levels of service voltage to meet the users' needs. As a common transformer in daily life, the step-up transformer has the following functions:

2. The functions of step-up transformer

The step-up transformer is one type of all kinds of transformers. The function of step up transformer is increasing voltage compensation. Therefore it is also called the step-up compensator.The step-up transformer has a good ability and performance of starting and boosting the voltage instantaneously. In fact, most transformers are divided into step-up transformers and step-down transformers according to whether voltage is boosted or lowered. To analyse from the voltage situation, the two kinds of transformers are completely opposite. For the step-up transformer, the number of turns of the secondary coil is more than that of the primary coil, while as for the step-down transformer, the number of turns of the secondary coil is less than that of the primary coil.

The step-up transformer is a special kind of isolation-type transformer, which can be divided into single-phase and three-phase. With different voltage classes including 220V, 380V, 400V, 415V, 480V, 500V, 515V, 660V, 690V, 1140V to 60KV, the transformer has advantages of small volume, high quality and good performance. Its body adopts imported silicon steel sheet and high-quality oxygen-free copper wire.The product is widely used in lots of occasions like construction engineering lines where because of the long distance, the voltage can not meet the required voltage. What's more, it can play the role of compensating the inadequate voltage resulted from the difference between the voltage with different classes at abroad and the imported matching equipment.
