Improving thermal modeling of power transformers
The project will be a co-operation between The School of Electrical Engineering at The Royal Institute of Technology and ABB Corporate Research hence the student will get two supervisors.
Within the scope of this master thesis project, the impact of the weather aspects: wind and solar radiation, on the top-oil temperature are to be investigated. At the moment, there exists a thermal model which describes the dependence of the top-oil temperature on loading and ambient temperature, which has been developed by IEEE and IEC. Hopefully these models are to be refined within the scope of this project, in order to provide better thermal models.
This project is second in line, after the project “Short-time overloading of power transformers” which was conducted by Nawzad Rashid. During that project the choice of thermal parameters during thermal modeling was investigated.
