Energy Efficient Distribution Transformers

A distribution transformer is used to reduce higher voltage of electricity to a lower voltage without affecting its frequency. After reduction the electricity can be easily used by consumers in their businesses and homes. Distribution transformers can be seen on utility poles in the form of metal boxes or cylinders.

The transformers are mainly used by:

  • Suburbs
  • Industries
  • Public utilities

Distribution transformers may be liquid immersed units or dry-type units. Dry-type transformers may be either medium voltage or low voltage ones.
