Distribution transformer vs. Converter transformer
What is the difference between a standard distribution transformer and a converter transformer?
The design of a converter transformer due to its application and the presence of high harmonic content loads is totally different compare to the standard distribution transformers.
It is very important to inform your transformer supplier about the effective use of your transformer.
By using standard distribution transformer as a rectifier transformer you are risking to damage it without being able to use the manufacturer product warranty!
We prepared a short technical description of the main differences between both types of transformers.
Converter transformer must face high harmonic contents in the voltage and in the current loads. For that reason the magnetic core is oversized reducing at the same time the working induction.
The medium voltage windings have to compensate additional losses due to harmonic contents and basing on the converter bridge type they are oversized too.
