A Substation power transformer is generally a device that is utilized in converting incoming voltage to higher or lower voltage values in order to cater for the specific current flow for a specific purpose. These transformers are a normal and frequently used component of the power grids in many nations in the world today. They allow power transfers to residence, commercial buildings and so on without without straining the circuits of those structures. As such you find that the transformer is utilized as a safety feature, that reduces the major risks of unregulated current.
There are basically two main functions of a Substation power transformer. Firstly they are mainly used to transfer current from a certain source to a specific destination. Secondly they are used to manage/regulate the current voltage so that it suits the capacity of it’s destination. The coil system of the transformer is responsible for both these functions. The coils in the transformer in the nature of their function, are like conductors which help maintain the current within a particular range that is acceptable or that the destination can accommodate. The transformer can be manipulated in a certain way to get the desired current output at a certain destination. Basically this can be achieved through monitoring and managing the fluctuation of current within the transformer’s core.
The efficiency of electrical grids and safety highly depends on this component
