Transformers for Electrical Energy Production

Since the generation is usually located away from the load distribution area, for the optimization of the transmission process it is necessary to adjust the output current and voltage of the generator; for this reason in most of the power stations, the generator output is directly connected to a step-up transformer.

Besides the step-up ones, in a power generation plant there are other transformers to supply the power station auxiliary system for starting up the boiler/turbine generator unit or gas turbine/generator and for supplying those loads which are not specifically associated with the generating unit.
