Requirements for Liquid-Immersed Power Transformers
|Publication Date:||6 December 2017|
This voluntary consensus standard sets forth the requirements for power transformer application. This standard is intended to be used as a basis for performance, interchangeability, and safety of the equipment covered, and to assist in the proper selection of such equipment.
This document is a product standard that covers certain electrical, dimensional, and mechanical characteristics of 50 Hz and 60 Hz, liquid-immersed power transformers and autotransformers. Such power transformers may be remotely or integrally associated with either primary switchgear or substations, or both, for step-down or step-up purposes and base rated as follows: 833 kVA and above single-phase, 750 kVA and above three-phase.
This standard applies to all liquid-immersed power transformers and autotransformers that do not belong to the following types of apparatus:
a) Instrument transformers
b) Step voltage and induction voltage regulators
c) Arc-furnace transformers
d) Rectifier transformers
e) Specialty transformers
f) Grounding transformers
g) Mobile transformers
h) Mine transformers
When this standard is used on a mandatory basis, the word shall indicates mandatory requirements, and the words should and may refer to matters that are recommended and permitted, respectively, but not mandatory.
NOTE-The introduction of this standard describes the circumstances under which the document may be used on a mandatory basis.1
