Why are transformer standards needed?

Transformer Product Standard

The power system is a system of electric energy production, transmission, distribution and consumption composed of power generation, transformation, transmission, distribution and consumption. Transformers are extremely important substation equipment in power generation, transformation and distribution. It is transmitted to the place where power energy is needed through the transmission line through the transformer. A power transformer is a transformer that converts the AC voltage and current values of one power system into different voltage and current values of another power system to transmit electrical energy;

The distribution transformer is reduced from a higher voltage to the last-level distribution transformer, and is directly used as a power transformer for distribution. Ensuring the safe and economical operation and normal life of transformers and improving their reliability and availability is not only the key to reducing the cost of the power industry, but also the key to ensuring the development of various fields of the national economy.

As early as 1965, the Soviet Union proposed to unify the most common transformer components and parts in a range of transformer series that have been finalized, and if possible, in several series and complete sets of accessories, which is of great importance to the smooth development of the transformer manufacturing industry. Significant; while developing standards for transformers, separate standards for components and parts must also be developed.

With the rapid development of the power system, the number of transformers has increased sharply, the voltage level has developed to 1000kV, and the capacity has developed to 1500MVA. The standard system of transformer product performance, key raw material and component performance, handover acceptance, preventive test and other standard systems is relatively complete, which is of great significance for ensuring and improving product quality.

Product standards are the technical basis for product procurement, design, production, testing, acceptance, use and maintenance;

The handover acceptance standard is to check the quality of the transformer after long-distance transportation and installation, and to establish a comparison benchmark for the long-term operation of the transformer;

Preventive testing standards are designed to detect defects in transformers in operation, prevent accidents or equipment damage.

This paper sorts out the current standards for power transformers in terms of product performance, key raw materials and component performance, handover acceptance, preventive test, etc., and provides current standard support for transformer design, manufacturing, factory acceptance, on-site handover acceptance, operation and maintenance, etc. Provide technical basis for transformer technical evaluation and fault analysis.

IEC 60076 Standard System for Power Transformers

The IEC 60076 series of standards falls under International Electrotechnical Commission Technical Committee 14 on Transformers (IEC/TC 14). The GB/T 1094 series of standards are equivalent to the IEC 60076 series of standards but have been modified accordingly. They are the most commonly used product standards for transformers, with a total of 16 items.
