The core of the transformer will be constructed of the highest quality, non-aging high permeability, cold-rolled gain-oriented silicon steel sheet especially suitable for the purpose. Every care will be taken during slitting and cutting process to avoid burrs. Both sides of each sheet will be special glass film insulated on to minimize eddy current losses. The cores will be carefully assembled and rigidly clamped to ensure adequate mechanical strength to support the windings and also reduced vibration to minimum under operating conditions.
The winding for the transformer shall be made of high tensile strength electrolytic copper of high conductivity ( Class A, in accordance with ANSI) and insulation ,material of high quality shall be free from burrs, scales and plinters.
The insulation material of windings and connections shall not shrink, soften or collapse during service. Thermally upgraded paper shall be used for conductor insulation. The design, construction and treatment of windings shall give proper consideration to all service factors, such as high dielectric and mechanical strength of insulation, coil characteristics, uniform electrostatic flux distribution, prevention of corona formation, and minimum restriction to oil flow.
Moreover, under any load condition, none of the material used shall disintegrate, carbonizer or become brittle under the action of hot oil.
The coils must be capable of withstanding movement and distortion caused by abnormal operating conditions. Adequate barriers shall be provided between windings and core as well as between high voltage and low voltage windings. All leads or bars from the windings to the terminal boxes and bushings shall be rigidly supported. Stresses on coils and connections must be avoided.
Due to very unfavorable short-circuit conditions and numerous short-circuits in the network, special measures have to be taken to increase the capability of the winding to withstand short-circuit currents. Winding and arrangement of coils shall be designed so as to unify the initial potential distribution caused by impulsive traveling waves, as much as possible, to avoid potential oscillation and in order to withstand abnormal high voltage due to switching.
To increase the capability of the transformer windings to witstand electromagnetic forces under short circuit conditions, modern technology in design and construction shall be applied. (e.g. low current density, provision of pressure limiting devices and spring elements, use of perfectly dried pre-compressed pressboard, maintaining a balance of ampere-turns between windings, ets.)
Measures against coil displacement as generated by the radial and longitudinal forces shall be considered. Computation of strenght against these forces including the description of the method being applied shall be submitted in detail.
The tank, conservation, coolers and bushings shall be adequately braced to withstand ocean shipment, and earthquake with seismic coeffecient of 0.45 g (horizontal)
c) Short Circuit Withstand Capability
The transformer shall withstand the combined effects of thermal, mechanical and electromagnetic stresses arsing under short-circuit conditions based on the maximum durations of fault:
High Voltage Winding: 2 seconds
Low Voltage Winding: 2 seconds
The maximum sustained short-circuit current in each windings shall be stated by the manufacturers. The maximum temperatures of the windings shall not exceed 250 deg C within second duration of fault. All transformer accessories, parts, components (CT's, bushings, tap-changer, etc.) shall be capable of withstanding the cumulative effects of repeated mechanical and thermal over-stressing as produced by short-circuits and loads above the nameplate rating.
For design purposes, the following network data shall be take into consideration. The available system fault currents as as follows (in rms):
67 KV : Ik" = 40 kA 13.8 kV : Ik" = 25 kA
The transformer shall be capable of withstanding the resulting successive short-circuits, without cooling to normal operating temperature between successive occurence of the short-circuit, provided the accumulated duration of short-circuit does not exceed the maximum duration permitted for single short-circuit defined above.
The upper limits of the symmetrical overcurrent due to such short-circuits as a multiple of rated current shall also be specified by the manufacturer.
d) Overload Capability
The short-time overload rating and operation of the transformer shall be in accordance with ANSI C57.92 or IEC 354. All other auxiliary equipment (bushings, CT's, etc) affected shall be rated to match the transformer overload rating.
e) Transformer Tanks:
The tank should have sufficient strength to withstand full vacuum and internal pressure of 1.0 kg/cm2, with cooling equipment & conservator connected. The tank cover will be clamped with bolts and nuts, and will be provided with handhole or manholes of suitable size. All seams and joint will be oil tight. Guides within the tank will be furnished to facilitate tanking and untanking, and to prevent movement of the core and coil assembly, in transit. The casing will be provided with suitable lugs for lifting the completely assembled transformer filled with oil. All gaskets will be synthetic rubber bonded cork.
The transformer will be provided with a number of sufficient radiators for self-cooled (OA) operation. The radiator will be installed on the tank via radiator valves, so that each radiator can be detached from the tank independently of the oil in the main tank. The radiator valves will have the open and close positions clearly marked. Radiators will be equipped with provisions for draining. Radiators shall be made of galvanized steel.
g) Forced-air-cooling system:
For forced-air-cooled (FA) operation, the transformer will be provided with automatically controlled three phase motor-fans actuated from winding temperature. Fan motor, weather proofed, three phase, Hz, and will be thermal protected. The cooling-fans will be mounted on the radiators and the control box will be mounted on the wall of the tank. Motor Voltage: 230 VAC, 3 phase, 60 Hz
