Auto Transformers with on Load Tap changer
The On Load Tap Changer Auto Transformer (O.L.T.C) are used as voltage regulator to compensate the voltage drop in the electrical network‚ so that customers at the line end receive the same average voltage value as those closer to the source.
The voltage value reduction affects the operation quality of the rotating machines and increases the losses due to the higher current drawn due to the voltage reduction. It also affects the quality of illuminating system.
EGYTRAFO Group produces the O.L.T.C Auto Transformer with rating up to 600 A & 9 tapping positions.
-The O.L.T.C is flange mounted (ON TANK) or (IN TANK) type according to the rating of the transformer and provided with an automatic voltage regulator (A.V.R) and a remote tap changer control cubicle (RTCC).
Our ranges are up to 500 A, up to 22 KV and more than 5 taping positions on request.
Auto Transformers applications:
you can use it as a safely starting machines such as induction motors and synchronous motors
Also, boosters to give a small boost to distribution cable for compensating the voltage drop
you can get the same advantage of the variac
Auto Transformers advantages:
Increased KVA rating for a given size and mass
Less amount of copper
Due to the smaller size, the cost is less compared to a two – winding transformer
The resistance and reactance are less compared to a two – winding transformer and hence it has superior voltage regulation
Volt-ampere rating is more compared to a two – winding transformer
It is possible to get smooth and continuous variation of voltage
