Types of small power transformers and inductors

Power plant operators and electricity transmission and distribution companies look for high-performing transformer and inductor solutions that are cost-effective, partially discharge-free, short-circuit-proof, and customised to meet specific installation and application needs.

Different small transformers and power inductors used in the power industry applications include, but are not limited to:

  • Single and three-phase insulated, low and medium-frequency power transformers
  • Oil and air-cooled small distribution transformers
  • Dry-type cast resin transformers and inductors
  • Medium and low-voltage instrument transformers for measuring and protection purposes
  • Window, bar, wound, split core, summation, and auxiliary current transformers (CTs)
  • Electromagnetic induction, capacitive-coupled and optical-type voltage transformers (VTs)
  • Injection transformers for ripple-control applications
  • Electronic instrument transformers for power engineering and grid analysis
  • Earthing transformers
  • Single-phase alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) inductors
  • Toroidal inductors for energy recovery systems
  • Filter and blocking reactors
  • Smoothing and inter-phase reactors, and
  • Inductive components for DC-DC, AC-DC, and AC-AC converters
