The transformation process - transformers are needed at any stage where the voltage changes up or down. Alternative stages and parameters are mapped as power is stepped up from generating plant to the high voltage transmission grid, then down to the medium voltage distribution grid and further down to low voltage end user. 

Transformer:Generator capacity ratios MVA:MW for each transformer segment:
  • by regions and 157 countries
  • by type - Central GSU, Power Network, DG GSU, Distribution network
N-1, N-2, 2N, 2N+1 Security and Redundancy - Load factors and redundancy are important features of any network. Load factors range from 50% to > 100% within networks, reflecting levels of redundancy. In the various parts of a network different load factors are use to achieve a cost-effective security standard, usually N-1 or N-2. What are N-1 or N-2 security standards, where are they applied and how do they affect the transformer population?

The Grid Edge is impacting on electricity systems; a changing generating mixture and increases in distributed power and renewables, the growth of DER and renewables, energy efficiency, electrification and digitalisation are in flux, and the distribution networks are just becoming ready for the Grid Edge. 

Smart Transformers - The aging power grid, increasing energy demands, distributed generation and the environment all point toward the need for a smart grid. Transformers serve as a hub for collection and distribution of energy and are key components of a smart grid. 

MEPS and Energy Efficiency - After thermal losses in generation, losses in transmission and distribution networks constitute the single biggest loss in any electricity system and 70% of these losses occur in the distribution network. Government regulations and programmes to reduce losses with energy efficient distribution transformers are outlined for different regions, with analysis of the amorphous distribution transformer industry and market uptake. 

Logistics - Power transformers can be the size of a house and weigh 400-500 tons. They often have to be transported large distances over difficult terrain with poor roads, underpasses and overpasses and limited load weight limits. Getting a large power transformer to site can involve over 10% of the final installed cost. For LPTs, the parameters of the move must be incorporated at the design stage before manufacture. Logistics problems and solutions are discussed with the engineering team together with their implications for transformers and for total cost. 

Electrification - Electrification rates around the world vary considerably and are changing, in some countries rapidly, with economic development. These are charted, with their impact on electrical markets.
