Overview

Used in a wide range of public utilities, industrial and commercial applications, our transformers consistently meet clients’ expectations. Our designs and manufacturing systems use state-of-the-art technology that when combined with high quality materials and components deliver decades of reliable performance and service.

The Medium Power Transformer can offer customers a variety of customized solutions including:
  • Primary substation type
  • From 10MVA up to 40MVA base capacity
  • High voltage up to 161 kV and BIL 750kV
  • Low voltage from 4kV up to 34.5 kV
  • With or without Load Tap Changer (OLTC)
  • De-Energized Tap Changer (DETC) in the High voltage side
  • Sealed tank or conservator design for oil preservation
  • Dual voltages either on low or high voltage side
Comprehensive services that include:
  • Transportation
  • Offloading
  • Assembly and installation
  • 24/7 service
Additional services are also available such as:
  • Technical support
  • Field testing
  • Spare parts

Key Benefits

Our cores are constructed with the highest quality grain oriented silicon steel laminations. Our circular coil design allows for more resistance from short circuit forces.

Excellent short-circuit endurance and insulation system design

Using systematic and comprehensive calculation methods supported by our high-tech design tools, our transformers will operate even through severe electrical distribution system disturbances.

Integrated solution supported with technical and technological capabilities

Power transformer is complemented with our comprehensive services with the technical support of our personnel. A dedicated and experienced technical team supports your project from development to completion. Application engineers assist you from early stages of your project, providing recommendations for the proper application, its design, and any unique specifications you need.
