8.0 SERVICE TRANSFORMER

The service transformer shall conform to the latest editions of
national and international standards indicated in Section B-2
Generator Transformers also, the service transformer shall comply
with the requirements indicated in Section B-2 and specific
requirements indicated below.

8.1 The number and rating of service transformers shall be decided
based on the geographical location of loads without sacrificing the
unit and common load concept.

8.2 The service transformers shall be two winding, three phase, 50 Hz,
6600 / 433 Volts, ONAN cooled with off-circuit taps of + 5% in steps
of 2.5%.

8.3 Impedance

The impedance of the transformers shall be selected such that the
fault level on the switchgear do not exceed its short circuit capability
including the motor contributions and also voltage dip while starting
any auxiliary does not exceed the limit acceptable for the equipment
concerned but in no case shall exceed 20%.

8.4 MVA Rating

Each transformer shall be rated to feed the entire load on the
respective switchgear considering the outage of another
transformer. An appropriate load factor with a minimum of 0.9 for
continuously running loads and 0.4 for intermittent loads like
cranes, plug points, sump pumps, etc., shall be considered. An
additional margin of 20% over the rating thus established shall be
provided for load variations during the course of engineering.

8.5 Specific Requirements

8.5.1 The transformer shall generally comply with specific requirements
indicated for generator transformers.

8.5.2 The tank cover shall be of conventional type with bolted joint at the
top.

8.5.3 The transformers shall be provided with detachable built on
radiators of adequate number.

8.5.4 Off-circuit tap changers with lockable operating handle, mechanical
tap position indicator, and with a variation of 2.5% per step and a
range of + 5% shall be provided.

8.5.5 Pressure relief device shall be provided.

8.5.6 The neutral of the LV side of the transformer shall be brought out in
a separate cable box. If the same cable box is used for neutral
side, then a metallic partition between phases and neutral shall be
provided.

8.6 Cast Resin Auxiliary Transformers

8.6.1 Instead of outdoor oil filled auxiliary transformer, a cast resin dry
type transformer is acceptable.

8.6.2 The cast resin transformer shall be housed in naturally ventilated
floor mounted cubicle with louvres backed by fine brass wire mesh.
Degree of protection for enclosure shall be atleast IP 32.

8.6.3 The transformer cubicle can be located right next to respective
415V switchgears and LV side shall be connected with solid bus bar
connections, or through bus ducts. The HV connections shall be
through cables.

8.6.4 The dry type transformers shall be provided with core and winding
temperature indicators, with temperature high alarm, and very high
trip, contacts.

8.6.5 The insulation class for cast resin transformer shall be class-F.

11.6.6 The core and windings shall be provided with embedded
temperature detectors for remote indication in CRTs.
