  • Power Outage

    As solar flares remain the topic of conversation for many scientists, they strive to warn us that the crucial moments will be occurring in 2013. According to the National Geographic News, it is believed that the year 2013 will show the strongest amounts of the suns dangerous activity. If the solar flares are able to hit the earth's surface as is currently believed power could be out for weeks to months to possibly years. While the probability for such a storm may be low, if they do hit the impact...

  • Power Transformers and Blackouts

    In today's world, electricity is everything. Can you imagine a day without power for your lights, refrigerator, television, radio, computer and to keep your trusted cell phone charged. For this economy, power is everything. Without it we would have panic. After all, just thinking about it caused the Y2K epidemic. Yet, every once and awhile, the power can temporarily go out. Often, the source is a power transformer, and when they malfunction the lights go out, our alarm clocks go off making us accidentally sleep in and our electric stoves...

  • Power Transformers: 105 and No Power!

    The summer heat that has been striking America recently is nearly unbearable. Unless you are at the beach or a lake with easy and quick access to water, most elect to stay indoors in the air conditioning. It is one of those summers where sleeping without the air conditioning running is nearly impossible as the temperature remains in the nineties or even in the hundreds. Most of us are lucky enough to have this option; however for thousands in Middleville and even more thousands in Charlottesville, this is not a...

  • The Thing About Power Transformers

    Over the past year, there has been a lot of interesting news concerning the status and activity of our sun. Constantly being reported are solar flares, and the potential damage that it could cause planet Earth, especially our electrical devices. In particular, this means our power transformers. Transformers are something we use everyday, but do not always think about, however with these new developments, they have been on minds a great deal more. When I first heard of the activity, I thought this is made up, something from science fiction...

  • Triad Magnetics Introduces VPT Series Toroidal Power Transformers

    Corona, CA—January 26, 2011— Triad Magnetics has released a new VPT Series Toroidal Power Transformers for electronics design solutions. The new design offers a 97.4 efficiency and uses 30 percent less material than previous designs. This new green power solution is smaller and lighter than other transformer products. Unique toroidal construction reduces stray fields, minimizes sizes, and increases unit efficiency. The transformers have a Class B, UL approved insulation system with 4000V primary to secondary isolation. Transformers start in price from $12 up and come in quantities of 100. For...

Industry Information

Power Transformers

Transformers, by definition, are electromagnetic components that are used to convert different levels of voltage and transfer energy from one circuit to another. The role of power transformers, particularly, is crucial in ensuring that energy is safely and efficiently transferred from a power supply line to a system of circuits, most notably in homes or businesses. Power transformers come in a variety of configurations. Some examples include wall-mounted, pad-mounted, and pole-mounted transformers, and can feature three or four enclosures. Power transformers are also equipped with sets of conductive windings, which are typically made from copper or aluminum. Some varieties of transformers are also made to transfer electric currents through underground power lines. Transformers are essential in transferring power within commerce and consumer contexts, no matter the size of the electronic device.

A specific example of a configuration of power transformer is a toroidal transformer. This variety of power transformer is donut-shaped, or toroidal, and can be manufactured with two sets of primary and secondary coils each. This allows for the transformer to be highly versatile in both its voltage intake and output. In addition, these sets of coils are isolated from both each other and the transformer’s core, which allows for minimal electric discharge. A specific example of an industry that uses these transformers extensively is the medical industry. It is important that the voltage level is carefully regulated so that it does not damage sensitive medical equipment and in turn compromise the safety of patients and medical employees. Transformers are vital for use in medical lab equipment, hospital beds, patient monitoring equipment, and dental chairs. Outside of the medical industry, items such as electric shavers, hair dryers, and other hand-held devices greatly benefit from these transformers.

The process of transforming power consists of a series of steps, and a transformer is required for each step in changing the voltage level during transmission. These steps involve the transformation from the power plant to a substation, then from the substation to a transformer, and from a transformer to a business or home. Within a power plant, electric power travels through a high voltage line. The voltage level of the power at this stage can reach up to several hundred thousand volts. The high voltage power is transferred to power substations, which involve a series of transformers that lower the voltage level to as low as 7,000 volts. From the substations, the power travels down several transmission lines, each transmitting 7,000 volts, to another transformer. This transformer is typically found mounted on utility poles outside of various buildings. These transformers are responsible for converting the voltage to a level which is suitable for the corresponding home or business. In the United States, the voltage level is reduced to as low as 120 to 220 volts by the time it leaves the transformer and reaches power outlets.

There are several considerations that can be made in finding the appropriate transformer for your desired application. These considerations include:

  • Amount of voltage
  • Voltage load required for the equipment
  • Current and future KVA load
  • Single or three-phase requirement
  • Hz frequency
  • Whether the transformer will be utilized indoors or outdoors

Manufacturers of power transformers fabricate their products with countless combinations of features. Therefore, it is highly recommended to consult with a manufacturer, as they will work with you in finding the right equipment.

Power transformers have quite a few capabilities, but they are not without fail. These devices play such a crucial role in providing power for everyday appliances that it can be worrisome to think about what an extended outage can lead to. Sometimes, temporary outages can happen due to the failure of power transformers can fail, much like the way a power line can fail due to exposure to certain conditions. Causes of a transformer failure can range from animals, wind, rain, sun, snow, fallen trees, or some other object that crashes into it. Sometimes the cause of the outage can be internal, such as the transformer overheating. With today’s technology, it typically does not take long to identify the problem and get the transformer up and running again. Since manufacturers do not fabricate power transformers frequently, natural disasters such as tornadoes, hurricanes, and solar flares could lead to power plants becoming damaged and manufacturers being unable to provide an immediate replacement. Fortunately, recent technology has enabled us to predict when and where natural disasters can occur, as well as its severity. Research in natural disasters can play a role in ongoing technological developments to improve how power plants and transformers operate.
