An increase in the development of Industries and rapid growth in the population has led to an increase in the power demand in the distribution network. With these increased needs, the existing distribution transformer have become overloaded conditions. Due to overload on the transformer, the efficiency and power factor drops and also it led to increase in the transformer voltage regulation and windings get overheated. This paper presents a novel topology called transformer auto stop-start that will automatically energise and de-energise, one pair of transformers at a kV/V Distribution network. In this way, the proposed technique reduces overall electric losses. Performance of transformer under different load conditions are illustrated by simulation.
Key words: Transformer overload / Distribution network / MATLAB/Simulink
