The transformer plays a vital role in the electrical power system and many other electrical circuits. This article is all about the different classification of the transformer.
Mostly the AC Systems uses a transformer as a part of it. Without using the transformer, AC current cannot be circulated or generated as per the recruitment for AC current. In the DC system, the transformer is not used.
Already, I have shared my article on the transformer – Main parts of Transformer and it’s Construction.
In this article, we will study the construction types of the transformer briefly.
Classification of Transformer based on Different Types
According to the studies and uses, we are using the different kinds of transformers for a different purpose. So everyone working in this field must know the different types of transformer.
As per requirement, multiple types of the transformer is used and the several branded of the transformer are manufactured.
I mention the below list of different types of transformer based on various basis.
Keep scrolling the types of Transformer below.
Base on Electrical Supply
- Single phase transformer
- Three phase transformer
Base on Construction
- Core type transformer
- Shell transformer
Base on Measurement
- Current transformer
- Potential transformer
Base on Service
- Distribution transformer
- Power transformer
Base on Cooling
- Dry type transformer
- Oil immersed type transformer
Base on Function
- Step up transformer
- Step down transformer
Base on Winding
- Single winding or Autotransformer
- Two winding transformer
- Three winding transformer
- Six winding transformer
Base on Types of Winding
- Concentric types winding
- Sandwich types winding
The design of the transformer depends on the power distribution and its capability in the system.
Companies Manufacturing Transformers
Many of the topmost electrical companies manufacture the transformer under their brand. Here is the short list of the Transformers brand.
The list of companies is given below.
- Uttam Bharat
That’s it all about various/different types and classification of the transformer. In upcoming articles, I will be covering detail about each transformer type.
Myself Dipali Chaudhari. I am a master in Electrical Power System. Sharing my knowledge on this blog makes me happy. Apart from that, I love playing badminton. And sometimes I dwell on the Python programming.
