The generator transformer is the first essential component for energy transmission, allowing energy supplied by the generator to be transferred to the network at the required voltage.
As a worldwide leader in their design and manufacture, AREVA T&D supplies generator transformers covering all client needs, starting from the lowest rated power installed up to the highest ratings known in the world, with voltages up to 800 kV.
AREVA T&D generator transformers can equip any type of power plant anywhere in the world, including thermal, classic or nuclear, hydraulic, co-generation or wind.
The choice between three-phase units or three-phase banks made of single-phase poles is often dictated by transport limitations within specific countries, but may also be determined by customer policy.
Generator transformers are usually equipped with de-energised tap changers, but they can also be equipped with on-load tap changers at customer request.
By responding to urgent customer requirements and immediate needs—and by successfully testing generator transformers in short-circuit withstand tests—AREVA T&D engineers have acquired an in-depth knowledge in this area and in associated design rules.
