Renewable power generation technologies will provide circa 40%of the world’s energy requirements by 2040, and they will continue to require transformers in their electrical networks. Energy generated from solar and wind power conversion sources will represent the fastest growing renewable sector.
Wind Turbine TransformersDue to advances in insulation material technologies utilised in the construction of transformers, we are able to develop a transformer design with an overall smaller footprint and a reduced width dimension to facilitate their installation inside the turbine nacelle. The combination of high temperature with stand insulation media and high performance synthetic ester dielectric fluid allow higher internal transformer temperature operation, but without causing any premature thermal aging in the insulation materials.
PV Solar TransformersPV Solar power applications experience steady state loading during inverter operation, and during sunlight hours there is a dampened reaction process and more constant loading on the transformer. Transformers experience their highest load during the peak sunlight and temperature hours which can have a significant impact on the internal temperature of the transformer and therefore the reliability and life span of theasset. Large invertors utilised in PV Solar energy harvesting induce significant amounts of harmonics which cause additional losses in the transformer, these harmonics require to be dissipated through filtration to ensure they do not enter the electrical network. Solar generation farms that utilise multiple invertors require separate multiple secondary core windings to connect the several inputs.
Cooling Dielectric FluidTo fully subscribe to the environmental and eco-friendly credentials supporting renewable energy power generation, we recommend optimised transformers designs using ester based dielectric insulation fluids(natural or synthetic). Both Ester dielectric fluids are extensively proven in transformer applications and are Fire Safe K-Class Rated, Fully Bio-degradable, Sustainable and Pose no threat to the environment. We also offer traditional mineral oil dielectric fluids for PV Solar transformer cooling but this not recommended for Wind Turbine applications
