Transformer with amorphous core in distribution network

This paper contains an analysis of a transformer with core of amorphous material compared with classical transformer. The advantages of transformers with core of amorphous material are low core losses, low magnetizing current, higher energy efficiency and longer lifetime. It is estimated that no-load losses account for more than 70% of all losses in transformer and approximately 25% of all technical losses generated in electrical network. By reducing the losses it would contribute to greater energy efficiency and thus it would increase the economy drive. Transformers with core of amorphous material have 50% lower core losses in comparison to the best classical transformers.
