Power transformers - Part 16: Transformers for wind turbine applications
IEC/IEEE 60076-16:2018 applies to dry-type and liquid-immersed transformers for wind turbine step-up application having a winding with highest voltage for equipment up to and including 72,5 kV. This document applies to the transformer used to connect the wind turbine generator to the wind farm power collection system or adjacent distribution network and not the transformer used to connect several wind turbines to a distribution or transmission network. Transformers covered by this document comply with the relevant requirements prescribed in the IEC 60076 standards or IEEE C57 standards. This second edition of IEC/IEEE 60076-16 cancels and replaces IEC 60076-16:2011, and constitutes a technical revision. The main changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows:
1) relationship between transformer rated power and the output current from the associated generator is introduced;
2) thermal correction of the effective cooling medium has been introduced;
3) testing regime has been strengthened to ensure transformers are suitable for the harsh electrical environment to which they are subjected.
