IEEE Guide for Mechanical Interchangeability of Ventilated Dry-Type Transformers

Characteristics of ventilated dry-type transformers relating to performance, limited electrical and mechanical interchangeability, as well as recommended practice for installation of equipment are set forth in this guide. Specific rating combinations are described up to 7500 kVA high-voltage class from 1.2 kV to 36 kV inclusive, and low voltage class up to 5 kV. This guide also describes certain electrical and mechanical requirements and takes into consideration certain desirable features of 60 Hz, two-winding, three-phase, ventilated dry-type transformers. Clause 9 through Clause 11 describe other requirements or alternatives that may be specified for some applications.

C57.12.51-2008

IEEE Standard for Ventilated Dry- Type Power Transformers, 501 kVA and Larger, Three-Phase, with High- Voltage 601 V to 34 500 V; Low- Voltage 208Y/120 V to 4160 V- General Requirements

This standard is intended to set forth characteristics relating to performance, limited electrical and mechanical interchangeability, and safety of the equipment described, and to assist in the proper selection of such equipment. Specific rating combinations are described in the range from 750/1000 to 7500/10 000 kVA inclusive, with high-voltage 601 to 34 500 volts inclusive and low-voltage 208Y/120 to 4160 volts inclusive. Part I of this standard describes certain electrical and mechanical requirements and takes into consideration certain safety features of 60-Hz, two-winding, three-phase, ventilated dry-type transformers with self-cooled ratings 501 kVA and larger, generally used for step-down purposes. Part Il describes other requirements or alternatives which may be specified for some applications and lists forced-air-cooled ratings for certain sizes.
