Oil Transformers

The Core

Core

Zennaro® transformers are manufactured with cores according to the latest knowledge in design, production and materials. The core is constructed with columns of sheet cold-rolled, grain oriented magnetic steel and insulated from each other with carlite. The core, completely mounted, is blocked so as to reduce vibrations to a minimum, guaranteeing a low noise level.

Conventional grain oriented steel (CGO steel) is used for transformers with normal no-load losses, while transformers with reduced no-load losses are built using higher quality HiB steel. These steel sheets are usually 0.27 mm and 0.30 mm thick. Core The core sheets are cut at an angle of 45° in order to maximize the magnetic flux linkage. Then the sheets are stacked in layers of either single or multiple overlaps. The multiple overlap or step-lap method offers additional benefits in terms of lowering no-load losses and noise levels.

Once the sheets are stacked, the core is compressed and fixed. The majority of ZENNARO® oil filled transformers are produced with oval-shaped core section obtained combining a round shaped section (that offers an excellent short circuit withstand capability of the windings) with a square mid section combined.

Oil Transformers

Distribution oil transformers

The Windings

Windings

The high grade of the windings underline the quality of Zennaro® transformers. On load during continuous duty they may be stressed by electromechanical effects, caused by short circuit and overloaded by particular needs of network.

60 years of experience, continuous research and development, assure that Zennaro® transformers can operate with elevated guarantee under different critical conditions.

High voltage windings

High Voltage

The high voltage windings are almost exclusively made of layered construction. The copper conductors are made of one or more round or square wires, completely insulated by pure cellulose paper or by double enamel. The insulation between the layers consists of pre-coated kraft paper, applied in sheet form.

Low voltage windings

Low Voltage

The low voltage windings are almost made of copper sheet conductor (foil); this reduces the axial stresses produced by short circuit to a minimum. The sheets and connectors welded onto them are made of electrolytically pure copper with a rigorously guaranteed conduction. The maximum voltage between each turn is only few volts. This allows the insulation needed between the turns (foils) to be limited to 1 thermo-hardening epoxy adhesive which cures and bonds during the drying process.

Oil channels are provided in order to secure sufficient cooling and avoid the overheating of the winding.

Oil Transformers

Distribution oil transformers

The Tanks

Tank

The majority of distribution transformer tanks are constructed with cooling fins. The demand for panel radiator type is limited. Radiators are requested and recomended for transformers of nominal power above 10 MVA. The tank has to withstand all the mechanical strains during transportation and on load during continuous duty of the transformer. Furthermore in hermetically sealed transformers, the cooling fins are designed in order to withstand also the internal pressure occurred during the treatments and oil filling under vacuum. The breathing type transformer has the conservator fitted on the cover. This cylindrical conservator is an expansion for the oil-tank when the windings heat up and often is fitted with oil-level gauge, silica-gel breather in order to ensure that only dry air atmospheric pressure can come in contact with the insulating oil.

Tank

The tank is shot-blasted to remove any scale, oil or other surface impurities, leaving a clean prepared surface for maximum adhesion of the paint coating. Air-drying paint is then applied by spraying or flooding. The tanks are varnished in a powder automatic equipment by means of a first washing treatment with high-efficiency polyvalent phosphor-degreasing liquid, a subsequent coat 70 micron thick of epoxy resin primer and a final coat of thermosetting powder 100 micron in thickness in colour of RAL scale, polymerised at 180 °C. The tanks get a good appearance and an outside agents strength. The tanks may be hot-dip galvanised upon request. This is often requested for transformers constantly exposed to the elements, for pole-mounted or platform-mounted transformers

Oil Transformers

The Active Part

Active Part

The E-shape cores and the windings from their various departments are moved to the assembly area. The windings are pushed over the core legs and wedged up to fill the spaces between the core and winding as much as possible. Interleaving the laminations of the upper yoke with the laminations of the core legs completes the magnetic circuit. The bushings are mounted on the cover, which is then fixed onto the assembled active part. The next step consists of connecting the windings to the bushings. The transformers are often fitted with an off-circuit tap changer. This tapping switch could increase or decrease of a certain number of turns while the transformer is disconnected from the electric system.

Active Part

A second tap changer could be mounted on the transformer when is requested a double high voltage level. The voltage ratio of the active part is then tested, and the active part assembled is dried in a forced air oven to remove the moisture from the insulating materials. Once the active part has been dried in the forced-air oven, it is given a final comprehensive quality inspection and placed into the tank. The top cover is then either bolted or welded onto the tank.

Vacuum

The transformers are placed in a vacuum chamber and filled with pre-treated oil (filtered, dried and degassed) under deep vacuum. This ensures optimum impregnation of the insulation materials by the oil, giving the insulation structure maximum dielectric strength. The transformers are filled with a high quality mineral oil, which fully complies with the requirements of IEC 60296 standard.

The Core

Core

Zennaro® transformers are manufactured with cores according to the latest knowledge in design, production and materials. The magnetic circuit is the core type with its section inscribed in a circle and with inserted couplings. It is constructed with positioned crystal transformer core electrical sheets, annealed in a continuous furnace and insulated from each other with carlite.

Conventional grain oriented steel (CGO steel) is used for transformers with normal no-load losses, while transformers with reduced no-load losses are built using higher quality HiB steel. These steel sheets are usually 0,27mm and 0.30 mm thick. Core2

The core sheets are cut at an angle of 45°, thus allowing maximum magnetic flux in the rolling direction. Then the sheets are stacked in layers of either single or multiple overlaps. The multiple overlap or step-lap method offers additional benefits in terms of lowering no-load losses and noise levels. Once the sheets are stacked, the core is compressed and glued to form a firmly bonded whole.

Cast Resin Transformers

Distribution cast resin transformers

High Voltage Windings

Voltage

The high voltage windings are made out of copper/aluminium and are so designed to avoid that thermal expansion causes slips between conductors and resin. They are carried out so as to effectively resist stresses caused by short circuit. The method of manufacture guarantees a perfect distribution of the electric field, no partial discharges as well as an excellent resistance to impulse stress. Guarantees have also been planned to resist the external dynamic effects of short-circuit. The dielectric materials employed (resin, conductors and insulators) are class F or H. The transformer has a working temperature rise limit of 100°C (Class F) or 125° (class H).

Low Voltage Windings

Low Voltage

The low voltage windings are obtained from copper/aluminium with the same height of the primary limb to reduce to a minimum the axial strain due to short circuit currents. A class F or H insulating block insulates the coils. Before mounting, the LV windings are immersed in alkyd resin and then polymerised at 150°C. This process guarantees excellent resistance to external agents (humidity and pollution of the atmosphere). The winding is designed and made out so that the maximum working temperature rise at full load is equal to class F (ΔT=100°C) or class H (ΔT=125°). The concentric shape of the two windings (HV and LV) is maintained by special spacers supports, which allows the supply flux to be uniformly distributed and avoids the onset of abnormal vibrations.

Cast Resin Transformers

The Casting Plant

Offices

The high technology of our casting plant, the care taken in making the moulds, combined with the high quality raw materials used, enable Zennaro® to produce the highest quality cast resin coils. The daily tests carried out to verify the level of partial discharges in the coils and measure the glass transition TG coefficient, underline the high quality manufacture of Zennaro® cast resin transformers.

The epoxy resin used by Zennaro® is class F and H thermal stability and the product is manufactured in conformity with the temperature limits given by the IEC 60076-11 standards.

Offices

The standard of the plant, the control system software, and particularly the epoxy resin allow Zennaro® to obtain a high level product under constant computerized monitoring. The resin used in the casting system is an epoxy resin charged with very fine quartz powder, giving the transformer the necessary characteristics to pass successfully every test. The computerized monitoring ensures the accurate control of all phases of the process, from the preparation of the resin to the temperature control in the polymerisation stages and to the corresponding TG measuring.

Offices

The UZV cable holder consists of three very simple parts:

  1. CLIP made of AISI 430 steel.
  2. SADDLE made of AISI 430 steel.
  3. SCREW made of electrogalvanized steel.


The installation

High Voltage

The installation of the electric cable is carried out in the following three easy steps:

  1. Set cable into saddle.
  2. Hang clip onto supporting section bar.
  3. Turn screw till cable is held fast in position. Do not overtighten.

The AISI 430 steel cable holder is suitable for the installation of multipolar cables of any type, diameter, and carrying capacity, as well as, unipolar cables whose carrying capacity is limited to 500 A. In the case of unipolar cables carrying more than 500 A, the use of AISI 304 steel cable holder is recommended.

The dimension

Offices

The dimensions of the cable holders are given by clicking in the following figures, while their weights are shown in the relative tables. The choice of the cable holder application depends on the space "S" or "S1" available. The type of section bar used determines the overall dimension of the cable holder.



When ordering cable holders, state the number of each type of cable holder required and the dimension of the supporting section bar, mentioning the side onto which the cable holder is to be mounted

Section bar

Offices

To said bars there is to be added the special section bar we have designed and built for said purpose. Our special bar is particularly recommended when cables are to be installed in very limited spaces and a maximum moment of inertia of the supporting bar is required. The above bar, which is hot-galvanized, is usually supplied in 2 meter lengths.

Inverted and double saddle

Saddle

They are both complementary to the UZV cable holder and are particularly recommended when cables with resilient sheathing are installed together. In fact, the inverted saddle prevents the top cable from coming into contact with the supporting bar, while the double saddle keeps the cables apart.
