Transformer energy performance - standards and regulation

Teacher Angelo Baggini

Description

Transformers are strategic assets in the public electrical networks and in private electricity systems, playing an important role in achieving the ambitious target set by the countries committed to global energy saving and emission reduction targets. In Europe only the cost-effective improvement potential through more efficient design has been estimated in about 16,2 TWh per year in 2025, which corresponds to 3,7 Mt of CO2 emissions.

Although transformers are among the most efficient electrical devices, even slight improvements in their energy performances shall be highly valued, considering the amount of installed units and the fact that they are designed to operate for decades before being replaced. In this context, energy performances can be regarded as a crucial accelerator for the penetration of new ideas and innovative solutions in the transformers business. In this course, the present energy performance programs running in different countries are reviewed, paying particular attention to the European market and recent EU Regulation no. 548/14.
