Both power and distribution transformers are used for T&D applications (transmission & distribution). The difference between power and distribution transformers refers to size & input voltage. Distribution transformers vary between 25 kVA and 10 MVA, with input voltage between 1 and 36 kV. Power transformers are typically units from 5 to 500 MVA, with input voltage above 36 kV.
A third segment in the transformer market are industrial transformers, used by industry to purchase electricity at high voltage and step it down for use on site. The size of industrial transformers varies, but typical units are 1.6, 2.5 and 5 MVA.Log in to post comments
