Home / Technical Articles / Transformer protection systems and their primary switching arrangements

Detection and clearing of faults

The protection of power transformers is not just a question of detecting faults within the windings, cores, or tank. It’s very often a question of how the transformer is integrated into the station or system. The detection and clearing of transformer faults are intimately connected to the primary switching that is available.

Switching arrangements

There are too many variations of such switching arrangements to be all-inclusive but a few typical examples will suffice to demonstrate the factors and logic involved.

  1. Parallel Transformer Banks
  2. Tapped Transformer Banks
  3. Substation Design
  4. Station Service
  5. Generator Station Design
