ELETRA TRANSFORMERS TRAINING COURSE

Introduction ELETRA transformers factory will be one of the biggest transformers manufacturing companies in the middle east . Air Natural´ cooling system (ONAN). It is the expected step to complete Alfanar electrical systems perfection . ELETRA manufactures a wide range of Three-Phase Distribution Transformers with oil immersed core type and ³Oil Natural. The factory is established to meet the increase in demand in power sector. The main characteristics of the ELETRA Transformers are: Rated power: From 50kVA to 10000kVA Rated voltage: Up to 36kV with two types of tanks: Free breathing with conservator Hermetically sealed The standard products items are listed as follow: Transformer Range 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 300 KVA 500 KVA 1000 KVA 1250 KVA 1500 KVA 2000 KVA 3000 KVA .

When an alternating current flows in a conductor . The use of a magnetic field from one coil to induce a voltage into a second coil is the principle on which transformer theory and application is based.Transformer theory Transformers are devices that transfer energy from one circuit to another by means of a common magnetic field. a magnetic field exists around the conductor If another conductor is placed in the field created by the first conductor such that the flux lines link the second conductor then a voltage is induced into the second conductor.

and the conductor of high voltage winding were rectangle of round shape depend on the rating and voltage system of the transformer .Transformer construction The core The purpose of the core is to provide a low reluctance path for the magnetic flux linking primary and secondary windings.6. Core laminations are compacted and clamped together using yoke clamps U channels and by tie-rods locking the top and bottom yoke clamps together. The magnetic circuit in a transformer is made of steel lamination sheets whose basic constituents are iron and approximately 3% silicon as an alloy element. Winding The windings consist of the current-carrying conductors wound around the sections of the core. Conductors for low-voltage windings were originally made from foil copper sheet. Copper is the primary material used as conductor because of high conductivity and mechanical strength. .

Insertion of axial wooden rod studs between iron core and internal diameter of windings for clamping the core and the coil to withstand the axial and radial forces during short circuit 4.Active Part Assembly Process In the previous stage. 4. Transformer core assembly will be inserted into the tank . Completion of the magnetic circuit by stacking the upper yokes 3. The next operation is spot welding to weld all four walls forming the tank .insulators & accessories are added to the final assembly after tanking takes place followed by final testing . Oil is supplied from the oil filtration plant 3. Finally .top plate . The core assembly will be dried in a vacuum oven This step is necessary for removal of moisture from windings Tank Manufacturing Process 1. this the slit is transferred to fin wall machine which forms the steel into corrugated wall 3. the main part of the Active Part (core without the top leg and winding) is finished.The Active Part Assembly is as follows: 1. Insertion of the transformer windings into the iron core . impregnated with oil by means of vacuum . First process in making tank is slitting of steel . Finally tanks are subjected to shot blasting & primer coating to produce tank in its final form Tanking Process 1.
