Jeff Schneider's Publications

  • Pressure optimization of medium-voltage liquid-filled transformers in photovoltaic solar applications

    • May 14, 2014

    While medium-voltage liquid-filled transformers have been in use for over 100 years in the United
    States, the use of this equipment in Photovoltaic (PV) solar applications is still a relatively new
    practice, with the majority of installations occurring since 2008. For this reason, finer nuances of the transformer’s operation in utilityscale PV installations are just now being realized. One of the most common issues to date has been nuisance operation of pressure alarms. This technical paper will focus on Eaton’s Cooper Power Systems recommendations for optimizing pressure within the transformer in order to minimize nuisance alarms.
