This article includes a list of references ied, but its sources remain unclear because it has insufficient inline citations. To prevent contamination of the tank oil and facilitate maintenance operations, the diverter switch usually operates isc a separate compartment from the main transformer tank, and often the tap selector switches will be located in the compartment as well. If only one tap changer is required, manually operated tap points are usually made on the high voltage primary or lower current winding of the transformer to minimize the current handling requirements of the contacts.

However, a transformer may include a tap changer on each winding if there are advantages to do so. The disadvantage is that these tap changers are more complex lec require a low voltage power supply for the thyristor circuitry.

Also called On Circuit Tap Changerin applications where a supply interruption during a tap change is unacceptable, the transformer is often fitted with a more expensive and complex on load tap changing mechanism.

On load tap changers may be generally classified as either mechanical, electronically assisted, or fully electronic. Alternatively, in some systems, the process of tap changing may be assisted by means of a rotary or slider switch. This type of transformer is frequently employed in low power, low voltage transformers in which the tap point often may take the form of a transformer connection terminal, requiring the input line to be disconnected by hand and connected to the new terminal.

Thyristor-assisted tap changers use thyristors to take the on load current while the main contacts change over from one tap to the next. In a typical diverter switch, powerful springs are tensioned by a low power motor motor drive unit, MDUand then rapidly released to effect the tap changing operation. All of the winding taps will then be routed into the tap changer compartment through a terminal array.


To reduce arcing at the contacts, the tap changer operates in a chamber filled with insulating 06214-2 oilor inside a vessel filled with pressurized SF 6 gas. Siemens — via http: This technique overcomes the problems with open or short circuit taps. In moving to tap 3, the following sequence occurs:. One possible design flag type of on load mechanical tap changer is shown to the right.

Ief assists in understanding the various types of tap-changers and their associated equipment available.

It is designed to cover every economic sector and virtually every activity of the humankind where technical standards may be used.

A mechanical tap changer physically makes the new connection before releasing the old using multiple tap selector switches but avoids creating high circulating currents by using a diverter switch to temporarily place a large diverter impedance in series with the short-circuited turns.

Articles lacking in-text citations from September All articles lacking in-text citations Commons category link is on Wikidata. Transformers with this mechanism obtain this variable turn ratio by connecting to a number of access points known as taps along either the primary or secondary winding.

The disadvantage is that all non-conducting thyristors connected to the unselected taps still dissipate power due to their leakage currents and they have limited short circuit tolerance.

IEC – IEC Tap changers. Part 2: Application guide

Diverter resistor A is short-circuited; diverter B is unused. This prevents arcing on the main contacts and 60214- lead to a longer service life between maintenance activities. International Classification for Standards ICS is an international classification system for technical standards. A reactance type tap changer uses a dedicated preventive autotransformer winding to function 6024-2 the diverter 660214-2, and a reactance type tap changer is usually designed to sustain off-tap loading indefinitely.

Assists in the selection of tap-changers designed in accordance with IEC for use in conjunction with the tapped windings of transformers or reactors. In such systems, the tap changer will often be set just once, at the time of installation, although it may be changed later to accommodate a long-term change in the 602142- voltage profile. Automatic tap changers can be placed on a lower or higher voltage winding, but for high-power generation and transmission applications, automatic tap changers are often placed on the higher voltage lower current transformer winding for easy access and to minimize the current load during operation.

No load tap changers are also employed in high voltage distribution-type transformers in which the system includes a no load tap changer on the 602142 winding to accommodate transmission system variations within a narrow band around the nominal rating. To minimize the number of winding taps and thus reduce the physical size of a tap changing transformer, a ‘reversing’ tap changer winding may be used, which is a portion of the main winding able to be connected in its opposite direction buck and thus iecc the voltage.


The low voltage tap may be requested to change positions multiple times each day, without interrupting the power delivery, to follow loading conditions on the low-voltage secondary winding network. Covers both on-load tap-changers and off-circuit tap-changers.

The tap selection on any tap changer may be made via an automatic system, as is often the case for OLTC, or a manual tap changer, which is more common for NLTC. Some arcing is unavoidable, and both the tap changer oil and the switch contacts will slowly deteriorate with use.

It is 6021-42 to us that you purchase the right document. Tap changers typically use numerous tap selector switches which may not be switched under load, broken into even and odd banks, and switch between the banks with a heavy-duty diverter switch which can switch between them under load. The result operates like a dual-clutch transmissionwith the tap selector switches taking the place of the gearbox and the diverter switch taking the place of the kec.

During a tap change operation, the potential rapidly increases between the two electrodes in the bottle, uec some of the energy is dissipated in an arc discharge through the bottle instead of flashing across the diverter switch contacts. This page was last edited on 15 Septemberat This power consumption can add up to a few kilowatts which appears as heat and causes a reduction in overall efficiency of the transformer; however, it results in a more compact design that reduces the size and weight of the tap changer device.

The high voltage tap is set to match long term system profile on the 602142 voltage network typically supply voltage averages and is rarely changed.
