FOREWORD (RW Partially ready)
The objective of this Transformer Handbook is to facilitate the physical understanding, selection, ordering, operation and maintenance of the whole range of power and distribution transformers. The target readers are personnel involved in the various stages of a transformer’s service life, from planning the investment to the disposal of the transformer after use. The handbook is arranged with the sections following the transformer’s life from initial considerations and planning through ordering, installation, operation, maintenance and scrapping. Other useful information, including more theoretical topics, is included. Navigation through the handbook is facilitated through a three level contents following this foreword, and the Index Section 18 page 194 at the end. Each section may be read independently of the other sections. Some topics or phenomena are deliberately mentioned several places in the text for the purpose that readers might not read the whole content of this book from the beginning to the end, but only chapters of particular individual interest. The first edition, Rev. 01, of this handbook issued at the end of 2003 was limited to distribution transformers and the “IEC-world”. Based on e.g. feedback from the readers and the fact that ABB has merged all transformer activities into one Business Unit, Transformers, this second edition of the handbook now covers all transformer types fulfilling the requirements of IEC and relevant ANSI/IEEE standards. This handbook is based on ABB Ltd. best knowledge and experience, and is meant to be a guide for the readers in handling transformer matters.…...

Auto Transformer

...Introduction to Auto-transformers An autotransformer is an electrical transformer with only one winding. The auto prefix refers to the single coil rather than any automatic mechanism. In an autotransformer portions of the same winding act as both the primary and secondary. The winding has at least three taps where electrical connections are made. An autotransformer can be smaller, lighter and cheaper than a standard dual-winding transformer however the autotransformer does not provide electrical isolation. At first sight, an autotransformer appears to be similar to a resistance potential divider. But this is not so. A resistive potential divider can’t step up the voltage, whereas it is possible in an autotransformer. Operation An autotransformer has a single winding with two end terminals, and one or more terminals at intermediate tap points. The primary voltage is applied across two of the terminals, and the secondary voltage taken from two terminals, almost always having one terminal in common with the primary voltage. The primary and secondary circuits therefore have a number of windings turns in common. Since the volts-per-turn is the same in both windings, each develops a voltage in proportion to its number of turns. In an autotransformer part of the current flows directly from the input to the output, and only part is transferred inductively, allowing a smaller, lighter, cheaper core to be used as well as requiring only a single winding. One end of the winding is......

...The Transformers Transformers is a live action movie released by DreamWorks in 2007. The story follows the Transformers’ arrival on modern-day Earth and their interactions with the human race, as they search for the life-giving AllSpark and continue their ages-old civil war. The movie is fiction but also distinct in its own right. My favorite "Transformers" character is Bumblebee who is a robot that transforms into Sam's car. I like him because he is a loyal Transformer and transforms into a Camaro which is a great sports car. He feels like a guardian for Sam and wants to be with him always which is very sweet. I also like the character of Optimus Prime because he is a leader who shows children how to be loyal and lead with integrity. Optimus Prime works with the United States military team and helps them defeat the decepticons by fighting alongside them. He could have taken the autobots and left Earth but he chose to help out others and use his powers for good which is very commendable. My favorite scene is when the autobots are trying to hide from Sam's parents. It made me laugh that they were on the front lawn destroying the house. Sam's parents thought he had locked his door because he was doing something wrong and Mikaela had to reveal herself in order to get them to stop bothering him. The quote I like the most is Sam Witwicky in the 2007 "Transformers" movie, "Hello? 911 emergency! My car's been stolen! I'm in pursuit! I need the whole squadron, bring everyone! No...

Life Remnant of Transformer by Measuring Oil Reflectiong

...Abstract Power transformers are one of the most important parts of the power system. Failure of a transformer affects power supply to citizen and affects the income of business sector. Condition monitoring of power transformer is very important. By measuring the furan contents in power transformer oil can give a sign of the power transformer health, using this method is more convenient and economical among all the methods. With the aid of UV-Vis Spectrometer, light absorption and transmission with various furan contents of different power transformers with different ages are measured and compared. The measured results are used to predict the furan contents and remnant life of the power transformer can estimate. Copper dusts added into transformer oil in order to investigate the effect on the light absorption and transmission. The measured results show the impact of copper dust on light absorption and transmission characteristics that can provide indication of transformers remaining health condition. This thesis presents the measurement of power transformers oil samples with different furan contents for remnant life estimation. Key words: Power Transformer, Copper Dust, Transformer oil, UV-Vis Spectrometer, Furan, Health Chapter 1 Introduction 1.1 Power Transformer Figure 1: A basic power transformer. Power Transformers are critical elements in an electrical power system. It is used to step-up or step-down voltage level as needed to serve the......

Power Loss in Transmission Lines

...To get power in our houses and businesses, there are several processes that the power goes though to get generated and carried across miles of power lines. Electricity is generated in a thermal power plant, hydroelectric power plant, and nuclear power plant, etc. This electricity is then supplied to a transmission substation near the generating plant. In the transmission substation the voltage is increased substantially using step up transformers. The voltage is increased to reduce the transmission losses over long distances. This electricity then is supplied to a power substation where it is stepped down using step down transformers and then supplied to a distribution grid. In the distribution grid there are additional transformers and voltage is further reduced for distributing further down the grid. From here the electricity is supplied to step down transformers near residential quarters that step down the voltage to 110/220 Volts as per each country's requirement. The power is produced using a three-phase generator that takes some kind of mechanical energy and generates three-phase power. The three-phase power leaves the generator and enters a transmission substation at the power plant. This substation uses large transformers to convert the generator's voltage (which is at the thousands of volts level) up to extremely high voltages for long-distance transmission on the transmission grid. You can see at the back several three-wire towers leaving the substation.......

Transformers Philosophies

...Primus (God) , Unicron(Devil) aka Robot Satan. the Story of God and evil is a eternal one we all know this to be the case. But none would have figured to have look deeply into the transformers. These two powers are much like God and Satan deny it if you want but the fact is Primus Gave his life to bring life to the Cybertronians that goes to show he treasured life unlike his counterpart who seeked to destroy everything in his path. For mere pleasure all he cared about what how to bring chaos to everything and destroy the cosmos with a flick of a finger but before doing so he would try to destroy the sons of his arch nemesis primus but the shear numbers and hope they had in preserving there home was enough to cast unicron out. Now this goes to show that under dying circumstances if a race can ban together to end a bigger threat for the safety of there home. Then why couldn't we ban together at this rate we are the bringers of chaos. With all of humanity's poisons we have created our home maybe on the verge of dying we are a young species with much to learn so right now we have the time to reverse our effects but we are simply to stubborn to do so because of the way we all live right now if we decided to make this step to fixing our home the first couple of generations would be living in poverty and etc. but that is only a small price to pay. For the longevity of our home....

Elites – the Gen Y Transformers

...ELITES – THE GEN Y TRANSFORMERS Nature abhors vacuum, and so do homo-sapiens. The latter, in its unrelenting quest, goes a step further and evolves to improvise, adapt and overcome. Given the nature of how non-conformist descended from the same ancestor, we’re all the same; and yet we’re so different. At the very outset, the elite, since time immemorial, has enjoyed a stellar reputation by virtue of their elevated status, which was, is and continues to be shaped by their social status; political background; cultural hegemony and/or economical might. There is no doubt in mentioning that the elite has toiled hard, slogged painstakingly and worked tirelessly to mount on the pinnacle in every walk of life. However, the existential question still looms large; to what extent the ‘elite’ has contributed and is contributing in the national and global discourse. The answer may well be fraught with complications, and full of labyrinth cross-questions, but this is what this essay seeks to do. I live in India, a developing economy whose population is over 1.2 billion. Though it is the seventh largest country in terms of area it houses the maximum number of people second to China. If we are optimistic, then in one way we have the second largest manpower in the world and we can use it to do wonders. Infact the steady progress which India has been doing in the past has made the developed nations be wary and cautious of India’s achievements. But, on the contrary, if we look at the......

...Transformers is a 2007 American science fiction action film based on the Transformers toy line. The film, which combines computer animation with live-action, is directed by Michael Bay, with Steven Spielberg serving as executive producer. It is the first installment of the live-action Transformers film series. It stars Shia LaBeouf as Sam Witwicky, a teenager who gets caught up in a war between the heroic Autobots and the villainous Decepticons, two factions of alien robots who can disguise themselves by transforming into everyday machinery, primarily vehicles. The Autobots intend to use the AllSpark, the object that created their robotic race, in an attempt to rebuild Cybertron and end the war while the Decepticons desire control of the AllSpark with the intention of using it to build an army by giving life to the machines of Earth. Tyrese Gibson, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Anderson, Megan Fox, Rachael Taylor, John Turturro, and Jon Voight also star while voice actors Peter Cullen and Hugo Weaving voice Optimus Prime and Megatron respectively. The film was produced by Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto. They developed the project in 2003, and DeSanto wrote a treatment. Steven Spielberg came on board the following year, hiring Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman to write the screenplay. The U.S. Armed Forces and General Motors (GM) loaned vehicles and aircraft during filming, which saved money for the production and added realism to the battle scenes. Hasbro organized an enormous......
