Scalable & Modular: Expansion Boards & Residual Flux Management
SynchroTeq Plus is a scalable and modular platform designed to receive two intelligent Ethernet fiber optic plug-ins, expansion boards, and additional three phase voltage measurements required for Power Transformer and application algorithm to calculate residual Flux.
Additional three phase voltage measurement required for Power Transformer and application algorithm to calculate residual Flux
Residual Flux Management for Seamless Power Transformer Energization
Without SynchroTeq Plus With SynchroTeq Plus
Residual flux is calculated from the voltage measurement of the (Y) transformer’s windings by using conventional potential transformers or bushing sensors installed on the HV bushings of the power transformer.
