DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS FOR 25 KV TRACTION-SUPPLY TRANSFORMERS

Traction transformers are subjected to special stresses: irregular load conditions, inbalances of the threephase supply network, short-circuits, over-tensions. Motive-power tension at pantographs must be maintained at a level which is as regular as possible. The article mentions a few constructional arrangements (electrical, mechanical, thermal), adopted for the transformers of BR's 25 kV traction network in order to withstand these service conditions without trouble.
