Basic parts of the transformer design:

The mаgnetic core

Is made of cold-rolled electrotechnical sheet steel with a heat-proof coating. Stacking tеchnology and «step-lap» cutting provide low level of no-load losses. Cutting of electrotechnical steel is carried out on the automatic cutting line with the high cut accuracy.

High voltage windings

Are made in section-layer form with the series connection of sections. HV winding is made of insulated wire or foil on high accuracy coil-processing machines. Vacuum resin filling of windings is carried out during a completely automated process. Epoxy compound includes a number of components providing a good heat emission, and also a high thermostability.

Low voltage windings

Are made of foil on automatic winding machine with simultaneous winding of interlaminar and frontal insulation. Number of cooling ducts in the winding depends on the transformer power. Ducts are provided with fiberglass profiles of a high heat resistance class. Windings are covered with insulating enamels and heat treated.

Transformer housing

Provides necessary protection degree of the active part. It is made of steel construction with walls, a bottom and a roof. The walls and the bottom have vent holes, providing a normalized cooling level of the transformer. Wide walls have access panels for access to adjusting taps. All walls are detachable, that assures visual inspection and maintenance service on a schedule date.

Transformers can be manufactured of the following design versions:

  • Lеft: HV winding inputs are on the left regarding the front;
  • Right: HV winding inputs are on the right regarding the front;
  • Up: inputs of the LV and HV windings are on the transformer upper cover.
  • Other design versions are up to the customer request

Transformers can have any protection class up to IP54 included, оn the client’s request.


The protection class of transformer, provided by its housing, is indicated as IP code. The IP соde consists of two figures: the first indicates the transformer protection against the external penetration; the second figure indicates the protection against the water. The less figures the less requirements to the transformer protection.

Temperature control device

Temperature control device is designed to control the temperature mode of dry-type transformers. At the dangerous overtemperature of transformer the device first switches on the warning alarm and cooling fans. If the overtemperature continuous and the temperature exceeds the admissible limit value, the device will give the signal for emergency shutting-down of the equipment. The temperature control device has four channels to measure the temperature and four output relays. Temperature sensors of three channels control the temperature of each transformer phase and the fourth channel controls the upper yoke of the magnetic circuit.

The device carries out the following functions

  • At the overtemperature of 145°С on any sensor the relay «warning» acts and a spot indicator is lit on the front panel «warning».
  • At the overtemperature of 155°С on any sensor the relay «overheating» acts and the corresponding spot indicator is lit.
  • At the overtemperature of 135°С on any sensor the relay «cоoling» acts and the fan is switched-on, when the temperature decreases up tо 110°С the fan is switched-off. To show functioning of the fan, the spot indicator «cоoling» is located on the front panel;
  • Rеlay «fault sensor» indicates the fault temperature sensor(s) in any channel in case of breakdown or short-circuit of sensor and also in case of anomalously fast temperature rise (20°С/sеc. or faster), that also means a fault temperature sensor. The corresponding indicator is lit on the device front panel if any temperature sensor is defected.

«Reset» button serves to switch off the relay «overheating». 5°С before the temperature of emergency shutting-down the alarm switches on again. The operator can switch-off the alarm signal again, after that the relay and indication «overheating» will not be switched-on.

Before placing the transformer for storage it is necessary to inspect the unharmed package and transformer itself and also to check the completeness of the supply and to restore the damaged package. The transformer is to be kept in the package of the manufacturing plant in closed, dry, clean, ventilated room.

At the transformer storage it is necessary to take measures, excluding the possibility of its mechanical damage and contamination.


All equipment supplied by «SVEL - RоsEnеrgоТrаns» undergoes the presale preparation. Technical specialists give recommendations on installation and settings of the equipment and also consult the client’s operating personnel about possible faults reasons and troubleshooting in the case of occurrence. Transformers are sent to the customer packed in wooden boxes. Тhe packing type is chosen depending on the protection requirements against climatic factors , way of transportation and design features of the transformer.

The nameplate, the input contact surfaces and earthing clamps shall undergo the conservation (covered with preservation grease). The set of spare parts correspond to the list of SPTA and is packed together with the transformer. The exploitative documents supplied with the product are in a hermetic bag inside the package. The packing list is enclosed into the folder-envelope, which is attached to the flank of the transformer package.


Transformers are delivered to the Customer by railroad or by motor transport. It is admitted to transport the transformers by air, by river boat or sea craft.

Usually transformers are delivered to the Customer being completely assembled or partly dismantled depending on the mass and overall dimensions. Right after arrival to the point of destination before the transformer unloading together with the representative of the forwarder it is necessary to inspect the package to be sure in absence of the mechanical damage. In case of revealing of any mechanical damage of the transformer it is necessary to draw up a statement of the inspection results and to address to the manufacturing plant.

Lоading-unloading works

Unloading of the transformer shall be carried out with facilities which loading capacity corresponds to the transformer mass. The arrangement of strapping is indicated on the transformer package. To move the transformer without its package it’s necessary to use all the lifting lugs at the same time. The arrangement of strapping is indicated on the dimensional drawing. Transformers despite their solid design can not withstand strong impacts or jerking via the lifting lugs. When unloading it is recommended to use the appropriate rope, according to the attached drawing, where level B shall be higher than level A

Transformers are equipped with ground wheels pivotal in two directions. For dragging, you can use the special lifting lugs which are near the wheels. If the transformer is not equipped with a pallet, lifting to the electric car can be carried out only in the longitudinal direction.
