The third enlarged edition, with updated bibliography and improved graphics: an indispensable text for anyone dealing with power transformers.
In almost every place where people live and work you will find at least one transformer, behind the scenes keeping the supply of power to the escalator in the department store, the hotel lift, the office computer, the oven in the local bakery, the farm machinery or the petrochemical plant. Nobody gives it a second thought to the important role it plays in the overall power supply. Less you are in the energy business ensuring grid reliability and stability.
The quality of a transformer is of utmost importance for safety, industrial and financial reasons. In 2003, ABB compiled all its knowledge in a book titled “Testing of Power Transformers.” The book represented the collective wisdom of over 100 years of testing power transformers. It has been written for transformer designers, test field engineers, inspectors, consultants,academics and those involved in product quality.
The feedback from our customers has been very positive since in the year of its publication. The book has been sold all over the world and is widely used in the industry and in universities for lecture purposes.
The overall interest has given us the idea to accept the challenge of adding to the original version. The basic structure of the manual remains unchanged whereas we have updated some charts and graphics. Our aim remains defining the key elements and principles of transformer testing.
In this second edition, a new section on the testing of shunt reactors has been added.
We are grateful to our customers who have embraced this guide. Their comments and feedback remain a source of ideas and inspiration. We thank them for their helpful input and trust that this new edition will aid them to further their knowledge, expertise, insight and contribution to the field of transformer testing.
