Power Transformers Part 5: Ability to Withstand Short Circuit
|Publication Date:||1 February 2006|
|ICS Code (Transformers. Reactors):||29.180|
This part of IEC 60076 identifies the requirements for power transformers to sustain without damage the effects of overcurrents originated by external short circuits. It describes the calculation procedures used to demonstrate the thermal ability of a power transformer to withstand such overcurrents and both the special test and the theoretical evaluation method used to demonstrate the ability to withstand the relevant dynamic effects. The requirements apply to transformers as defined in the scope of IEC 60076-1.
