|About the book|
Currently, the installed capacity of power generation in India is 104,917 MW and by 2012 another 100,000 MW will be added. With this addition, the requirement of power and distribution transformers will grow enormously, as will the emphasis on quality and performance. The design of a transformer is critical to its quality as are men, machines and materials. This book is a hands-on guide covering design, process control of manufacturing technique, installation, erection, commissioning and maintenance of distribution transformers. It also covers failure analysis and remedial measures for increasing the longevity of transformers. Apart from explaining the design aspect of transformers, the book lists the requirements of ISO 9000 in the process of manufacturing technique up to the final stages of product testing, inspection and despatch.
