High Power Transformers

Application

Rex dry type power transformers are primarily designed for stepping down high voltages from transmission and distribution systems to utilize voltages in commercial and industrial, institutional or utility applications. They are ideally suited for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Dry type power transformers require minimal maintenance to provide many years of reliable trouble free service. Unlike liquid filled transformers which are cooled with oil or a fire resistant liquid dielectric, dry type units utilize only environmentally safe, CSA and UL recognized high temperature insulation systems. Every dry type design provides a safe and reliable power source which does not require fire proof vaults, catch basins or the venting of toxic gasses. These important safety factors allow the installation of dry type transformers inside buildings close to the load, which improves overall system regulation and reduces costly secondary line losses.

Rex Power Magnetics provides quality dry type power transformers up to 15 MVA at 34.5 kV and 150 kV BIL. A sampling of their applications are:

  • Power Distribution
  • Indoor or Outdoor Primary and Secondary Unit Substations
  • Grounding Transformers
  • Mining, Pulp and Paper Application
  • Corrosion Resistant Transformers for Marine Distribution and Power
  • Low Electromagnetic Field Emission Transformers For Hospital and Institutional Use
  • Traction Power Rectifier Transformers for Transit Systems
  • Motor Starting & Drive System Applications
  • High Harmonic and Intermittent Load Applications
  • Many Other Applications

Features

  • Using Computer Aided Design (CAD) techniques and modern materials, Rex engineers have created a range of highly efficient transformers having long trouble-free life with reduced weight, size, and cost.
  • Ventilation openings in the enclosure are coordinated with the cooling ducts in the coils to ensure proper natural circulation of the cooling air for long life and minimum losses.
  • General-purpose ventilated steel enclosure, suitable for indoor locations. After fabrication, they are finished in ASA 61 grey powder coating, suitable for most industrial and commercial installations.
  • CSA certified, File No. LR34493.
  • UL listed, File No. E108255.
  • Transformers up to 75 kVA capacity may be readily hung on H-columns, walls , shelves or floor mounted to suit each installation. All units have lifting lugs, conduit KOs and a removable front cover for convenient access to terminals.
  • Transformers rated 112.5–300 kVA capacity are suitable for floor or platform mounting and complete with integral lifting lugs, a removable top, as well as front and rear panels for convenient access to the terminals.
  • Class 220 insulation used throughout range
  • Transformer terminations rated below 330 Amps are supplied with suitable hardware and lugs for cable connection. Terminations above 330 Amps are supplied with terminal pads only.
    Typical Configurations

Insulation

The lifespan of the insulation is the main determinant in the life of the transformer. The working temperature of the transformer affects the life of the insulation. This temperature is a combination of the unit's temperature rise, the ambient temperature and the hot spot temperature.

Rex Power Magnetics Transformers are manufactured with class 220OC Insulation materials. Only high temperature resistant materials of the best quality are used including Nomex Aramid papers, Silicone or Polyester Coated Fiberglass, Nomex Sleeving, Glass Tapes and Polyester/Glass Duct Sticks.

Core Construction

Every Rex Power Transformer core is constructed from electrical grade, cold rolled grain oriented silicone steel of M5 grade or better. Grain oriented steel is utilized for its superior magnetic permeability, low hysteresis and eddy current losses. Steel is cut into individual laminations on automated cutting machines to ensure precision and consistency.

Core laminations are meticulously stacked on specially designed jig tables. The individual laminations of the core are then clamped together by structural grade steel core clamps. Once the core is complete, an epoxy coating is applied to guard against corrosion.

At Rex Power Magnetics, we construct our transformer cores with either rectangular or cruciform configuration. The core configuration is chosen to provide the most efficient unit with the best weight and dimension factors. Both configurations may utilize either the Butt & Lap stacking method or the Full Miter cut stacking method.
