Transformer Oil Air Cooler for Forced Oil Cooling Systems

Transformer oil air coolers are an important part of the forced oil cooling system for transformers. These coolers are designed to dissipate the heat generated by the transformer core and windings during operation. The forced oil cooling system ensures efficient and controlled cooling, enabling the transformer to operate at optimum temperatures and avoiding overheating.

The following is the working principle of transformer oil air cooler in forced oil cooling system:

1, transformer oil circulation: the transformer contains a closed-loop oil circulation system that circulates insulating oil through the transformer core and windings. This oil absorbs the heat generated during the operation of the transformer.

2. Oil-air cooler: The oil is then directed to the oil-air cooler, which is essentially a heat exchanger. The oil-air cooler is equipped with a series of heat sinks or cooling tubes that increase the surface area available for heat exchange.

3. Air Cooling: Ambient air is used to dissipate heat from the oil in the oil air cooler. As the hot oil flows through the heat sinks or cooling tubes, it releases heat into the surrounding air. This process helps to reduce the temperature of the oil.

4. Forced Air Cooling: In many cases, the cooling process is aided by fans or blowers mounted on the oil air cooler. These fans blow air across the cooling fins or tubes, thereby increasing cooling efficiency. Forced air cooling is particularly advantageous where natural convection may not provide sufficient cooling, e.g. in large transformers or under high load conditions.

5. Return to transformer: After the oil has cooled sufficiently, it is returned to the transformer to continue the cooling cycle.

The combination of oil circulation, heat exchange in the oil-air cooler and forced air cooling ensures efficient heat dissipation and effective cooling of the transformer. This helps to keep the transformer temperature within the safe operating range, prevents thermal stress and increases the reliability and service life of the transformer.

Transformer oil air coolers for forced oil cooling systems are available in a wide range of designs and sizes to suit different transformer applications. They play a key role in maintaining optimal transformer operation and are commonly used in transmission and distribution systems as well as a variety of industrial applications. Proper selection and sizing of oil-air coolers is critical to ensure adequate cooling capacity and performance for a given transformer.
