AUTOMATIC LOAD SHARING OF TRANSFORMER
The transformer is very costly and bulky equipment of power system. It operates for 24 hours of a day and feeds the load. Sometimes the situation may occur when the load on the transformer is suddenly increased above its rated capacity. When this situation occurs, the transformer will be overloaded and overheated and damage the insulation of transformer resulting in interruption of supply. The best solution to avoid overloading is to operate the number of transformers in parallel. It is same like parallel operation of transformers where the number of transformers shares the system load. In the suggested approach second transformer will share the load when the load on the first transformer will rise above its rated capacity. The main aim of the work is to provide an un-interrupted power supply to the energy consumers. By implementation of this scheme the problem of interruption of supply due to transformer overloading or overheating can be avoided.
