Industrialization and modernization has spread rapidly among Asian countries, especially Malaysia. Consequently, this implies increasing energy requirements for more industrial complexes, business districts, shopping districts, railway stations, and high-density residential areas, leading to complex electrical networks for distribution of power. Transformers today are required to perform under heavy loads, especially during peak periods and in very high temperature conditions due to high energy demands.
Hence, there is an increasing demand for safe, energy efficient, and environmentally friendly electrical equipment for distribution of power. Cast resin transformers are more and more commonly used for distribution of electrical supply as they are able to perform in severe ambient conditions, fire resistant and self-extinguishing, quiet operation, and compact size and light weight to minimise space requirements for installation.
IEM Electrical Engineering Technical Division, Ablecon Power System Sdn. Bhd, and Schneider Electric Industries (M) Sdn. Bhd. have co-organised “One Day Seminar on Cast Resin Transformers” which will focus on informing participants’ status of IEC for dry type transformers and the evolution of IEC, trend in terms of energy efficiency in European countries, importance to have transformers to be fully tested, application for dry type transformers, and the advantages and future of cast resin transformers
