Smart MV transformer for the energy turnaround

Switzerland, Zurich: ETH Zurich electrical engineers have developed a smart electronic transformer that efficiently transforms medium voltage into low voltage, following the research work that was conducted as part of the Swiss National Research Programme “Energy Turnaround”.

A new, smart medium-voltage transformer features semiconductor technology, making it compact and energy efficient, ETH Zurich stated in the press release.

Future applications of this transformer range from locomotives to fast charging stations for electric vehicles and from power supplies for data centres to use in future power grids.
