Abstract:

 

Transformer Control Cabinet Standardization

This presentation will address the continuing concerns from the Electrical Utility Industry Safety and Human Performance Concerns with nonstandard control cabinets on power transformers within the United States.

The Utilities within the US now procure small to large power transformers from around the world and from many different suppliers.  Although a majority of the Utilities within the US specify transformers to be provided to the IEEE Standards there is no consistency of control cabinets being supplied to the end user which allows for human performance and safety concerns to Utility field technicians in the field.

Within this presentation we will discuss the opportunity of standardizing control cabinets to create a safer product and environment for the utility personnel and many other utility concerns such as engineering time management for design approval,  lead time of cabinet, spare parts, and integrating monitoring systems.
