Transformers used in industries mostly work with electrical
supplies and production lines and are used to regulate the voltage levels and
simplify using low voltage devices. They are used to generate power that can be
transferred over long distances.
There are different types of industrial transformers that can use
for multiple applications. Some transformers are tailor-made to handle the high
current requirements of different equipment. The transformers used in industries
vary in design as the voltage fluctuates a lot and are used to manage equipment
of varying sizes and shapes. Thus, we will focus on the different transformer
types used in industrial applications and what makes them differ w.r.t to
Converter transformers are
perfect for all kinds of industrial application, including pumping stations,
rolling stock, blast furnaces, and more. They have flexible voltage adoption
and are mostly used for static voltage compensation and static frequency
change. These transformers are tailor-made to work seamlessly in harsh
conditions and have multi-pulse applications and variable electric speed drives
that work through the transformer.
Rectifier transformers are
trustworthy for industrial applications as they induce a chemical reaction for
DC power supply. They consist of a diode or thyristor rectifier that make them
effective for large to various medium-sized operations. They are air or water
cooled transformers that do not overheat as a result of regular usage.
Furnace transformers are designed to withstand high thermal stress and are cost-efficient transformers for all kinds of conditions. They can be electric arc furnace transformers or DC electric arc furnace transformers and are mostly used steel or ferro-alloy furnaces. Electric arc furnace transformers are similar to submerged arc furnace transformers. They are suitable to manage frequent voltages and currents shooting generated by short circuits in the furnace. While, DC electric arc furnace transformers are built for applications like steel furnaces with a thyristor rectifier. They have cyclic loading and use rectifier transformers for furnace operations. Since they are available for both AC and DC furnaces, these transformers offer high currents of up to 200kA. These are only used in railway lines and have limited operational capabilities in other industrial areas.
