E-lesson: Design of power transformers – e-lesson #6: Short circuit withstand

Course: Intermediate level

This is the sixth e-lesson in the Design of power transformers course authored and conducted by Aleksandar Lojpur, and here you can access your room link for it.

The attendees who are subscribed to the entire Intermediate level will have the opportunity to take the mini-exam (a couple of questions) after the session has been conducted. This will be possible after every lesson on this level. If you pass all of the mini-exams, you will earn the certificate of achievement without taking the master exam after the entire level has been conducted.

The idea behind this series of lectures is to reveal the importance of each design phase and interlinks between them in the transformer life expectation of 30 years and more. This course provides the overview of the main design aspects.

Attend the session to learn about the following:

• Short circuit types
• Short circuit currents
• Short circuit forces
• Short circuit stresses
• Maximum permissible stresses
• Ability to withstand short-circuit
