Low-Voltage General Purpose Dry-Type Transformers

Why is this topic important?

The Department of Energy (DOE) regulates the energy efficiency level of low-voltage general purpose dry-type transformers, liquid-immersed and medium-voltage dry-type distribution transformers. Beginning in 2016, there will be newly amended energy efficiency standards for distribution transformers. The new amendments to the existing efficiency standards will further decrease electrical losses thus reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Join us for a technical overview and GE’s interpretation of the new transformer efficiency requirements as they relate to low-voltage general purpose dry-type transformers.
