Study of transformer explosion prevention with bushing turret protection


Liquid-filled power transformers typically contain thousands of liters of flammable insulation. When this insulation breaks down, there is a high risk of transformer failure that would endanger human life, generate envi- ronmental hazards, and destroy valuable assets. Because live tests involv- ing arcing are expensive and potentially dangerous, numerical simulations are a useful alternative to study faults over a wide range of transformers.

The object of this paper is to analyze the activation of two mechanical depressurization devices, the TRANSFORMER PROTECTOR (TP) and the Pressure Relief Valve (PRV), during an internal arc on a transformer installed at the JSC RusHydro Boguchanskaya Hydro Power Plant, located in Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia. The incident occurred on phase B of the transformer T2, on May 3, 2013.
