The function of the distribution transformer is to step down the voltage from a medium voltage level (MV) to a safe low voltage level (LV) suitable for use in domestic and industrial applications.
Such transformers are typically categorized as liquid-filled or dry-type distribution transformers. They vary in size and complexity, ranging from relatively small single-phase transformers, which are mounted on poles in rural locations, up to larger three-phase transformers, which can have many additional complex features, such as the forced cooling capability for enhanced power rating or seismic withstand requirements, etc.
The distribution transformers' applications are varied, ranging from traditional utility distribution installations to transformers for railway electrification requirements, step-up transformers for renewable applications such as wind and solar, and many more.
