Specification of voltage regulating distribution transformers (VRDT)

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization forStandardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

IEC 60076-24:2020: The Ultimate FAQ Guide

IEC 60076-24:Scope

This document applies to medium power transformers from 25 kVA up to 3 150 kVA with highest voltage for equipment up to 36 kV, or in low voltage (LV) networks with highest voltage for equipment of up to 1,1 kV equipped with voltage regulating devices.

Voltage regulating distribution transformers are transformers equipped with components to control primary or secondary voltage for on-load voltage regulation purposes.

The main objective of the installation of a VRDT is to regulate the LV network voltage level (i.e.400 V), to avoid violation of the limits defined by relevant standards or regulations. The VRDT must operate properly as a step down and step up transformer.
Transformers covered by this document comply with the relevant requirements set out in IEC 60076 (all parts) and, unless otherwise stated in this document, they also comply with European Standards EN 50160 and EN 50588-1.

Voltage Regulating Distribution Transformer

VRDT

Transformer equipped with components to control primary or secondary voltage for on-load voltage regulation purposes within the scope of this document.

Regulation Voltage

Ratio Ud/UN or 100 Ud/UN (percentage) where: UN is the rated voltage of the transformer; Ud is the voltage which would be developed at no-load at the terminals of the transformer, connected on the tapping concerned, by applying rated voltage to an untapped winding related to IEC 60214.

Regulation Range

variation range of the regulation voltage expressed as a percentage, compared with value “100”.

Note 1 to entry: If this factor ranges from 100 + a to 100 − b, the tapping range is said to be: + a % − b % or ± a % if a = b.

Regulation Steps

Ratio between regulation range divided by number of steps

Regulating Unit

System or device that physically facilitates the change in voltage of the transformer, for example, electromagnetic or electronic devices

Control Unit

Unit which operates the regulating unit

Note 1 to entry: It can have various modes of operation, for example, automatic, manual or remote control. Manual  mode is mandatory for erection and commissioning. It can also have a human-machine interface.

Environmental Conditions

Service conditions for VRDTs are the same as those specified for power transformers in IEC 60076-1 and IEC 60076-11.

The purchaser shall identify in the enquiry to the manufacturer any service conditions not covered by the normal service conditions as specified in IEC 60076-1 and IEC 60076-11 and, for the control unit, the normal service conditions as specified in IEC 60068-2 (all parts). Any different applications shall be agreed between manufacturer and purchaser.

NOTE 1 Transformer with regulating unit:

Application liquid immersed transformer: indoor or outdoor use and storage.

Application dry transformer: indoor use and storage.

NOTE 2 Control unit:

Application is indoor use and storage

Electrical Characteristics and General Requirements

As per IEC 60076-1:2011, 5.3 for transformers connected to generators, the value of the rated voltage is as given in IEC 60076-1:2011, 5.4.3, the 110 % of overvoltage is at no load and limited at 5 % at rated power.

For specifying the rated low voltage, the purchaser shall take into account the possible overexcitation which can increase no-load losses, depending on the technology of the VRDT.

EC 60076-24:Regulation Steps

Unless otherwise specified, there are 3 to 11 on-load steps.

The regulation can be symmetric or asymmetric.

Unless otherwise agreed, step sizes are to be uniform to give constant flux voltage variation (CFVV).

IEC 60076-24:Voltage Steps

Unless otherwise specified, voltage steps are 1,0 % up to 3,0 % and shall be agreed between manufacturer and purchaser.

IEC 60076-24:Voltage Steps

Unless otherwise specified, the on-load regulation range is ±5 % up to ±10 % of the rated voltage ratio for symmetrical regulation.

Service Life

Loading guides (IEC 60076-7 and IEC 60076-12) are applicable.

Deviations shall be agreed between manufacturer and purchaser.

The manufacturer shall indicate the number of operations for which the VRDT is designed.

The manufacturer shall indicate a future need for firmware updates of the control unit.

Parallel Operation of the VRDT

For parallel operation of the VRDT, special precautions should be taken to avoid high circulating currents.

NOTE Depending on the impedance of the connections between the VRDTs, significant circulating currents are possible (IEC 60076-8). A typical solution can be a master/follower arrangement or a single grid controller.

Loss Level

Measurement of the loss level shall be in accordance with IEC 60076-1.

The maximum loss level for the VRDT (transformer and regulating unit) shall be compliant with local standards, for example, EN 50708.

No-load and load losses shall include regulating unit losses.

Sound Power Level

Measurement of the sound power shall be in accordance with IEC 60076-10.

The maximum sound power level shall be compliant with local standards, for example, EN 50708.

Operating noise during the switching process of voltage regulation should not be taken into account.

This noise and its values shall be agreed between manufacturer and purchaser.

Rating Plate

Rating plate requirements are in accordance with IEC 60076-1, IEC 60076-11, and with applicable local standards, for example, EN 50708.

For voltage regulating distribution transformers, a visible marking of “VRDT” shall be placed on the rating plate.

IEC 60076-24:Routine Tests

Apply IEC 60076-1 and IEC 60076-11, but with different test sequences, in accordance with this document.

IEC 60076-24:Functional Tests

With the regulating unit fully assembled on the transformer, the following sequence of operations shall be performed as a routine test, without any failure:

a) with the transformer de-energized, three complete cycles of operation (a cycle of operation goes from one end of the tapping range to the other, and back again);

b) with the transformer de-energized, and with the auxiliary voltage reduced to 85 % of its rated value, one complete cycle of operation;

c) with the transformer energized at rated voltage and frequency at no load, one complete cycle of operation.

IEC 60076-24:Type Tests

The transformer, including the regulating unit, shall pass the short-circuit withstand test in accordance with IEC 60076-5.

If the regulating unit contains electronic components, the test conditions shall be agreed between manufacturer and purchaser.

Partial discharge measurement shall be agreed between manufacturer and purchaser (e.g. IEC 60076-13).

The functionality test (11.5.1) shall be repeated.

IEC 60076-24:Special Tests

Apply IEC 60076-1 and IEC 60076-11, but with different test sequences, in accordance with this document.
