Transformers and reactors in hydroelectric plants


Conference: Hydro Power Africa

Abstract: Presented by Atef A Moniem and Adel Y Hannalla at Hydro Power Africa

Transformers used in hydro - electric plants vary considerably in output and voltage dependent on the section of the plant. Different types of transformers are employed and are studied with considerable attentions to the governing parameters in the design stage. The impact problems related to the operation and network harmonics with the necessary precautions in transformer construction are considered. Environmental and site conditions for the selection of the transformers are shown.
