Pad-Mounted Transformer

Three Phase Pad Mounted Transformer

General

 

 

One of most important series of farady pad mount transformer is three phase pad mounted transformer, which have bigger capacity and wide application area.

Pad mount transformer are made in power ratings from around 75 to around 8000 kVA and often include built-in fuses and switches. Primary power cables may be connected with elbow connectors, which can be operated when energized using a hot stick and allows for flexibility in repair and maintenance.

Farady pad mount transformer or pad-mounted transformer is a ground mounted electric power distribution transformer in a locked steel cabinet mounted on a concrete pad. Since all energized connection points are securely enclosed in a grounded metal housing, a pad mount transformers or pad-mounted transformers can be installed in places that do not have room for a fenced enclosure. Padmount transformers are used with underground electric power distribution lines at service drops, to step down the primary voltage on the line to the lower secondary voltage supplied to utility customers. A single pad mount transformer or pad-mounted transformer may serve one large building, or many homes.
