Oil Forced Air Forced (OFAF) Transformer Oil Cooler
1. Transformer: A transformer is an electrical device used to transfer electrical energy between two or more circuits through electromagnetic induction. It is commonly used to step up or step down voltage levels in power transmission and distribution systems.
2. Transformer Oil: Transformers generate heat during operation due to electrical losses, and to dissipate this heat and insulate the transformer's internal components, a special type of oil called transformer oil (also known as insulating oil) is used. Transformer oil is a highly refined mineral oil with excellent electrical insulating and cooling properties.
3. Oil Forced Air Forced (OFAF): OFAF is a cooling system used in some transformers to regulate the temperature of the transformer oil and prevent overheating. It stands for "Oil Forced Air Forced," indicating that both oil and air are used in the cooling process.
How the OFAF cooling system works:
In an OFAF transformer, the transformer oil circulates through cooling tubes or radiators within the transformer tank. The hot oil flows through these cooling elements, and then, fans or blowers force air over the surface of the cooling elements to dissipate the heat from the oil. This process helps to keep the transformer's temperature within acceptable limits during operation.
OFAF cooling systems are commonly used in medium and large power transformers because they are more efficient and provide better cooling compared to other cooling methods like ONAN (Oil Natural Air Natural) or ONAF (Oil Natural Air Forced).
