Case study: What is melting here? Time for an SFRA test
This case study has been generously supplied by the Hitachi Energy Service group in Sweden. A 22 MVA, 10.5 kV/276 V (voltage regulation from 336 to 216 V), Diii furnace transformer, operating in heavy use for many years at a steel melting plant in Europe was subjected to a complete series of tests after a sudden failure during operation. The service contractor evaluated the electrical and dielectric condition of this transformer. During service, this type of transformer has its secondary winding connected externally in a Delta configuration through a high current bridge.

OTS Vessel Prep Guides
When unexpected results are experienced in testing the dielectric breakdown of oil samples the cause can often be traced to insufficient attention to one or more of the following key elements of vessel preparation.

Auxiliary voltage tests of circuit breakers
Measurement of the outer limits of the operating mechanism is required by international standards such IEEE C37 and as IEC 62271, when certifying a circuit breaker (CB). Some of those tests are valuable to repeat in field tests, obviously to ensure that the CB fulfil its design specification, but those tests and some additional tests in similar spirit can also disclose potential future problems. The most common is to vary the auxiliary voltage but it could also be other energy resources for example hydraulic and pneumatic pressure. This application note will focus of the auxiliary voltage, what the standard requires, sort out the terminology and what tests that are valuable to repeat in field tests.
