Safe-NET Network Transformers
Safely and reliably supply power to secondary grid systems
Utilities provide safe and reliable electrical service to their end customers. In large metropolitan areas with densely populated cities, utilities provide this service over secondary network distribution systems. These network systems are largely underground, therefore the network transformers that support these systems are a vital and critical part of the electrical infrastructure.
GE's Safe-NET network transformers are the safest transformers available in the industry for secondary network applications. Safe-NET network transformers are designed to supply power to the network bus and are capable of handling significant short-term overload conditions in this application. GE's exclusive transformer tank design features patented tank technology that minimizes the danger from a transformer rupture event, mitigating its impact to adjacent assets and public safety.
