    Condition Power transformers
    The goal Design of power transformer means iterative calculation process for determining the size of construction element and resulting transformer characteristics.The goal of the design is to minimize the material and power losses,leading to minimum both production and operating costs,while keeping specified transformer technical characteristics.The design includes the basic transformer technical drawing.
    The outcome To realize the relation between the construction parameters and operating characteristics of the transformer. The knowledge is needed in the engineering process of the transformer specification and purchasing, as well as in design and the construction of the transformer.
    Contents of lectures Specifications for the transformer to be designed. Explaining the instructions and needed diagrams. The sample drawing of the transformer of the type of designed transformer. Consultancy over the semester.
    Contents of exercises Selection of the material and calculation of the dimensions of the magnetic circuit.Selection of the winding type and calculation of the electrical characteristics.Calculation of the temperature rise and check of dynamic stress by short-circuit.Selection and sizing of cooling system.Characteristics of the design transformer and comparison with input specifications.Technical drawing.
