Pressure release device: The transformer shall be equipped with a self-sealing pressure release device design to operate at a minimum pressure of 8-PSI (0.564 kg/cm). 9. Protection: The transformer shall have the following additional fittings as its integral part: 9.1 The transformer shall have the following CSP features: a) Internal HV fuses on the HT side of transformer: Specification for the HT fuses: Expulsion / any other suitable fuse placed in series with primary winding. This fuse is mounted normally inside of the primary bushing and is connected to the high voltage winding through a terminal block. This has to protect that part of the electrical distribution system which is ahead of the distribution transformers from faults which occur inside the distribution transformers i.e., either the windings or some other part of the transformer. It shall be ensured that this fuse does not blow for faults on the secondary side (LT side) of the transformer i.e. the blowing characteristics of the fuse and LT breaker shall be so coordinated that the fuse shall not blow for any faults on the secondary side of the transformer and these faults shall be cleared by the LT breaker only. Internally mounted oil immersed LT breaker on the LV side of the transformer.


LT circuit Breaker: All LT faults after the breaker shall be cleared by this breaker. As such, it shall be designed for perfect coordination with the HT fuse link. The supplier shall furnish the time/current characteristics of LT circuit breaker and 11kV fuses for various current multiples. The two characteristics shall be drawn on the same sheet to indicate coordination between the circuit breaker and fuse. This shall be based on the type test carried out on one of the transformers. In addition, the supplier shall carry out coordination test as indicated above, and this forms one of the tests for acceptance. The breaker is to be mounted on the secondary side of the transformer under oil to minimize premature operations from primary surges as would be with undersized line fuses. Two single pole elements is preferred. The breaker shall be coordinated thermally with the transformer rating to follow closely the variation of coil temperature due to fluctuations in loads and ambient temperatures. This is to be accomplished by connecting the breaker in series between the secondary winding and the load current. The breaker shall be located on the same oil as the core and coil assembly so that the bimetal are sensitive to the temperature of oil as well as the load current.

Tech spec final

The circuit breaker may be an electro-mechanical device with three elements viz. (a) temperature sensing (b) latching and tripping and (c) current interrupting. The temperature sensing function might be accomplished through the use of bimetallic strips which would be built into the breaker, such that load current of the transformer follows through them. In addition to this, a magnetic tripping device is to be provided for increasing the opening speed of the breaker under high fault conditions. The circuit breaker shall be mounted inside of the transformer so that these bimetallic strips are within the top oil layer of the transformer. The latching and tripping functions of the circuit breaker may be carried out within assembly similar to those used in industrial type air circuit breaker. The circuit breaker shall also be closed and opened manually standing on ground and with a magnetic trip device also. The current interruption element shall consist of copper current carrying parts plus a set of copper tungsten current interrupting contacts. The magnetic element shall increase the opening speed of the circuit breaker under high fault current conditions. The response of circuit breaker to the activity shall remain unchanged by the addition of the magnetic trip element. The specification to which the breakers conform shall be indicated. LOAD MANAGEMENT SIGNAL LIGHT: A signal light, controlled by a bimetal in the breaker shall switch on when the transformer load reaches a predetermined level indicating that the transformer has been over-loaded. The load management signal light shall perform two functions. It shall show visually when the particular transformer has been operating in an overload condition and shall provide knowledge that for good system management, the economical change out point for the transformer is fast approaching. The signal light need not indicate temporary overloads and shall turn on only when the overload condition has existed at a given level for a certain length of time. The LT circuit breaker shall have a set of auxiliary contacts built-in for signal light operation. These, normally open contact, shall form part of the signal light circuit. The signal light circuit shall consist of an auxiliary transformer winding (one or two turns) which generates about 4V, for the signal light contact set within the circuit breaker, and the signal light is to be mounted on the transformer tank. The signal light contact set is mechanically connected to the main circuit breaker latching and bimetal system. The signal light mechanism is adjusted so that the signal light contacts will close at a pre-set thermal condition which occurs before the main latching system opens the main contact. The net result is a visual external indication that a pre-set load condition has reached by the transformer. The signal light mechanism does not reset itself when the load drops off, the signal light remains lighted once the signal light contact closes and can only be turned off by manually operating the external circuit breaker handle. b) ALTERNATIVE FOR (b) Externally mounted MCCB for LV side: Single pole MCCB is to be provided on LV side with thermal trip release with inverse time current characteristics for overload protection and magnetic trip release for instantaneous tripping in the wake of short circuits.
