How to Purchase a 2000 kva Transformer in 2022?

How to Purchase a 2000 kva Transformer in 2022 (1)

A high-quality 2000 kva transformer must have the characteristics of low failure rate, maintenance-free, low loss and energy saving.

But there are so many different 2000 kva transformers on the market today. How do you choose?

First of all, as you know, 2000kva transformers are mainly divided into two categories: dry-type transformers and oil-immersed transformers.

But how to choose between these two categories?

Dry-type transformers are currently more expensive than oil-immersed transformers, and their capacity is smaller than that of oil-immersed transformers.

But if you are using transformers in complex buildings, then you should choose dry-type transformers, because the space in these places is generally small, and the advantage of dry-type transformers is that they require less space.

Oil-immersed transformers generally require an independent substation, so it is commonly used in open spaces.

If oil-immersed transformers are installed in urban areas or bitcoin mines, the first choice must be pad mounted transformers. Because the pad mounted transformer has the advantages of excellent stability and almost no maintenance.

After deciding which type of 2000 kva transformer you want to choose, you need to choose a good transformer manufacturer.

How to tell if you are dealing with a manufacturer or a trader?

How many KW appliances can a 2000KVA transformer carry, and what is the maximum allowable current of the line?

A 2000KVA transformer can carry a load of 1700 kW if it is all electrothermal (resistive) loads.

But if all of them are inductive loads such as motors, they will be discounted by 60%, which is a motor load of 1200 kilowatts.
If there are both, then 30% off (1400KW) or 20% off (1600KW), it depends on which load accounts for more proportion.

In fact, according to the regulations of the Electric Power Bureau, the maximum load is 85% of the full load, which is 1700KVA. Maximum line current is 2586 amps.
Calculate like this: 1700KVA÷380V÷1.732=2.5859446KA=2585.9949A≈2586A≈2600A.

How to turn off the 2000kva transformer?

The transformer did not shut down this statement, it should be withdrawn from operation. It can be realized by switching off operation.

The basic principle is to cut off the circuit breakers and isolating switches on the high and low voltage sides of the 2000kva transformer.

To turn off the transformer, it is necessary to power off the upstream of the 2000kva transformer. The upstream high-voltage power supply of the 2000kva transformer has a circuit breaker and a drop insurance.

Stop the low-voltage side load first, and disconnect the low-voltage side circuit breaker. Then stop the high-voltage side power supply of the 2000kva transformer, and pull the high-voltage side circuit breaker to the test or maintenance position.

What is the voltage of the 2000 kVA transformer into the household?

The input voltage of a 2000 kVA transformer is 380 volts, but the voltage into the transformer needs to be determined according to the voltage of the power supply system, generally 10 kV, 30 kV, etc.

How to choose the incoming cable on the high voltage side of the 2000kva transformer?

Copper core plastic cables should be used.
Why?
Because the current i=2000kva/(1.732*10kv*0.9)=128a on the high-voltage side (10kv) of the 2000kva transformer.
The current carrying capacity of the cable of 70 can reach 140a. Considering the poor heat dissipation of buried laying, cable production quality, power factor, etc., it is recommended to use yjv22-10kv-3*95 copper core plastic cable.

How big is the copper bar for a 2000 kVA transformer?

For the commonly used 10(6)/0.4kV substation, the low-voltage phase busbar of 2000kVA transformer is 2 (125×10) mm per phase, and the PE busbar is 80x8mm.

How to choose the circuit breaker of the 2000KVA transformer high voltage incoming cabinet?

circuit breaker for the 2000 kva transformer

For SF6 circuit breakers, the selection method is the same as that of vacuum circuit breakers, but in power distribution systems, vacuum circuit breakers are mostly used.

1. Select the type of circuit breaker according to the cabinet type of the transformer. For indoor fixed 10KV switchgear, most of them use ZN28 vacuum switch, equipped with a spring operating mechanism, which can be operated by AC, DC electric operation, or manual operation;

For indoor removable 10KV switchgear (such as KYN type), VS1 type vacuum switch can be selected, equipped with a spring integrated operating mechanism, which can be operated by AC, DC electric operation, or manual operation;

2. Select the rated current of the circuit breaker. Generally, there are four types of power distribution circuit breakers: 630A, 1000A, 1250A, and 1600A. You should calculate the load current flowing through the circuit breaker according to the load situation, and then select the rated current after leaving a margin; for a 2000KVA transformer, its Rated current I=2000/(1.732*10)=115.5A, a 630A circuit breaker can be selected initially, but it should also be verified;

3. Verify the breaking current of the selected circuit breaker. Calculate the short-circuit current value of the installation site of the circuit breaker, and compare it with the breaking current value of the circuit breaker initially selected. After leaving a margin, the breaking current value of the circuit breaker should be greater than the maximum short-circuit current value of the installation site, so as to ensure In the event of a short circuit, the circuit breaker can operate reliably and remove the fault without damage to itself. Generally, the rated short-circuit breaking current values of 10KV vacuum circuit breakers are mostly 20KA, 25KA, 31.5KA, 40KA, corresponding to the above 630A, Four rated currents of 1000A, 1250A and 1600A; if the installation site of the 2000KVA transformer is relatively close to the outlet of the substation, and the maximum short-circuit current value is 26KA, then the rated short-circuit breaking current of the 630A switch is 20KA, which cannot meet the requirements of the point of use It is necessary to choose a circuit breaker with a rated current of 1250A and a rated short-circuit breaking current of 31.5KA.

4. Check other cases. Such as phase-to-phase distance, installation size, interlocking situation, whether there is blocking, whether it has an overcurrent coil, whether it has a voltage loss, etc.

How to choose 2 sets 1000Kva transformers and 1 set 2000Kva transformer?

If your factory equipment does not work all day, the critical load is very close to the capacity of the transformer, and the load is relatively stable. Then you can choose a 2000Kva transformer.

But if the equipment in your factory needs to be switched on and off every day, the load changes are relatively large, and there are people on duty, then you can consider using two units to run in parallel.

1000kva TRANSFORMER VS 2000kva TRANSFORMER

The advantages of choosing two 1000Kva transformers

1.2 sets of 1000KVA transformers are more economical to operate than 1 set of 2000KVA transformers. When the scheduling is more appropriate, the total running cost will be lower.

2. Two 1000KVA transformers have high power supply reliability, and the transformers can also be switched on and off according to the plant load.

3. From the point of view of operational reliability, it is better to use two units. If two units are running at the same time, if one unit fails, the other unit can carry an important primary load. The reliability of power supply with a single unit is not high.

4. Two 1000kva transformers have the advantage of flexible scheduling, one is used when the load is light, and two are used when the load is heavy.

Disadvantages of choosing two 1000Kva transformers

 1. One time investment is relatively large.

2. The number of supporting equipment is also doubled.

3.The installation location should also be larger.

4.The workload of maintenance is also larger.

The advantages and disadvantages of a 2000kva transformer are just the opposite of those of two 1000kva transformers.

What is the no-load loss of a 2000kva transformer?

Under normal circumstances, the no-load loss of the transformer (called iron loss) is about one thousandth of the transformer capacity; the rated loss of the transformer (called copper loss) is about one percent of the transformer capacity. S11 2000KVA type transformer enterprise standard: no-load loss 1960W load loss 17820W .

What is the primary and secondary side current of a 2000KVA power transformer?

Because the rated capacity of the transformer multiplied by the coefficient = rated current.

Therefore, the primary side current of 10KV/0.4KV, 2000KVA power transformer: I1=2000/(1.732*10)=115.47A,

Secondary side current: I2=2000/(1.732*0.4)=2886.83A.

A 2000 kVA transformer supplies a low-voltage power distribution cabinet. What size universal switch do I use in the low-voltage power distribution cabinet?

If 10KV/0.4KV

Transformer primary side current: 116A Secondary side current: 2880A

The main input circuit breaker selects 3000A-3500A

Can be equipped with three 1000A outlet cabinets.

The main busbar can use 80*8 copper busbar, but it is recommended to use 100*10 copper busbar.

What is the use environment of 2000kva transformer?

Do you need to make sure that your 2000kva transformer is an oil immersed transformer? Or a dry-type transformer? ,

The requirements for the environment are different between them.

Under normal circumstances, the 2000kva transformer can be below 1000 meters above sea level. If you have special requirements, such as high altitude, frequent lightning activities, wet tropics, dry tropics or areas with severe salt spray, etc. You can negotiate with the manufacturer, generally can meet the requirements.

How much does a 2000kva dry-type transformer lose in a day?

The no-load loss of a 2000kVA dry-type transformer is 3050W, and the load loss is 14450W. If it runs at full load, the loss per day is multiplied by 24 hours.
Load loss 14450*24H=346800W
No-load loss is 3050W*24H=73200W

2 sets of 2000kva dry-type transformers side by side at a safe distance?

The installation requirements of most countries are that the safe installation distance of two 2000kva dry-type transformers is more than 1 meter. The author recommends that you choose a safe distance of more than 1.5 meters.

What is the insulation resistance of a 2000KVA dry-type transformer?

High pressure to low pressure and ground is greater than 1000 megohms, high pressure to ground, low pressure to ground is also greater than 1000 megohms is qualified.
You can use a 2500 volt megohmmeter to measure.
Since the transformer is a large-capacitance device, the measurement will take a period of time. When the speed reaches 120/MIN or more, the normal operation is more than 30S.
Note: After the measurement, keep its speed until it is separated. Otherwise, it is easy to damage the instrument due to the discharge of the device under test..
If the measurement can meet the above parameters..
Prove the equipment is in good condition!

2000 KVA dry type transformers

Can a 2000kVA transformer cast half the power?

Yes, unless the power factor COSΦ is less than 0.5, there will be problems! Is the transformer loss will be larger! As long as the power of the equipment below is not greater than the maximum active power that the transformer can output, there is no problem!

According to the conventional power factor of 0.95, a 2000KVA transformer will output 1900KW of active power at full load.

However, the economic operating capacity of the general transformer is about 80% to 85%, so that the loss of the transformer will not be too high, and the service life will be longer!

So as long as the reactive power compensation is in place and the power factor is not lower than 0.85, it can be used!

How to judge the overload of 2000kVA transformer?

Transformers in normal operation are equipped with switchboards, and there are three AC ammeters on the switchboards to judge whether the transformer is overloaded according to the load current value usually used. Under normal circumstances, during the operation of the transformer, if the operating current exceeds the rated current on the nameplate, it is in overload operation.

The rated voltage of the primary side of the 2000kva transformer is 10KV, and the voltage of the secondary side is 0.4KV. According to the formula “rated voltage of 10,000 volts, the coefficient is just 0.6” and “rated voltage of 400 volts, the coefficient of 1.445”, the high-voltage side The current is (0.06×2000=120A), and the low-voltage side current is (1.445×2000=2890A).
