With the various kinds of transformers available in the market, each supporting different applications, power transformers in India are the most popular types of transformers used. These transformers are highly efficient in transmitting high voltage levels at loads above 33kv. In fact, they perform their best at 100% load! This quality of providing maximum efficiency has resulted in power transformers being used in transmission networks, transmission substations, and power generation stations. These power transformers are further categorized into step-up and step-down transformers to increase or decrease the voltage levels as required.
While earlier agriculture had everything done manually, today it has transformed into a high-tech sector with a variety of magnetic being used for farming, tilling, and harvesting. One of the equipment that helps in a major way in this industry is the transformer. These equipment are designed to provide sufficient power to support various agricultural applications. There are various types of transformers available in the market, out of which three are majorly used in the agricultural industry, namely power transformers, auto transformers, and high voltage transformers.
As the name suggests, insulators are used to insulate electrically charged part of an equipment from another charged or uncharged metal part. Insulators cover the conductor and act as a barrier to keep the conductors unreachable, when used in lower utilization voltage. And, in high voltage overhead transmission and distribution, insulators are used to insulate the live conductor from transmission towers or poles.
Electricity is produced at very high voltages in power grids, and this voltage varies from country to country; and in fact, it also varies between regions within a single country. But, however it may vary, the produced electricity is not fit for being used directly into homes, offices, and factories. The high power of electricity produced will explode the appliances used, and cause extreme risk to the end users. This is where transformers come to the rescue.
We see the rise in the number of medical facilities and hospitals today because of the increasing number of diseases and ailments rising every day. Whichever hospital you see, it is filled with patients – the beds, the day care, the ICU, the OT, and every other department. And with these medical facilities, rises the need of various types of medical equipment. Such medical devices require various kinds of cables and wires to work. When it comes to large equipment devices that involve usage of innumerous wires, engineers prefer installing wire harnesses instead of so many different wires that can get entangled, and become difficult to repair or replace in the future, when required.
Generally, we would always read about how important it is to use tested cables, but today, in this blog, we are going to read how important it is to work with a tested cable manufacturer. This is because just as much as the product quality is important, so is the quality and reliability of the manufacturer. The experience, quality of processes, and quality of raw materials used – all of these are important in manufacturing superior quality and highly reliable products. Let us understand this in detail below.
A tap changer is a device fitted to a transformer to regulate the output voltage to the required level. This is done by changing the turn ratios of the transformers by connecting to a number of access points known as ‘taps’ along either the primary or secondary winding. These tap changers are generally placed on low-current high-voltage transformers to minimize the current load during operation. Tap changers exist as two types – no load tap changers, and on load tap changers.
