Description

Recent catastrophic blackouts have exposed major vulnerabilities in the existing generation, transmission, and distribution systems of transformers widely used for energy transfer, measurement, protection, and signal coupling. As a result, the reliability of the entire power system is now uncertain, and many blame severe underinvestment, aging technology, and a conservative approach to innovation. Composed of contributions from noted industry experts around the world, Transformers: Analysis, Design, and Measurement offers invaluable information to help designers and users overcome these and other challenges associated with the design, construction, application, and analysis of transformers. This book is divided into three sections to address contemporary economic, design, diagnostic, and maintenance aspects associated with power, instrument, and high-frequency transformers. Features: # Addresses the economic, design, diagnostics, and maintenance aspects of power, instrument, and high frequency transformers # Includes information for the designers and users of transformers to overcome difficulties, such as propagation of disturbances # Covers large shell type transformers, high frequency transformers, and planar transformers # Provides an alternative point of view for solving problems, including stray losses and short circuit withstand capability # Presents recent tools based on numerical methods applied to high frequency and instrument transformers
