Transformer Design Program

Transformer Design Program (TRANS) is a comprehensive design program used to design a wide range of linear transformers. For small linear transformers TRANS will design a broad range of single or three-phase transformers with or without rectified outputs. For large transformers, TRANS will handle ratings upwards of several thousands Kva. Standard industry winding schemes such as barrel, disk & section winding can be accommodated. Cooling methods – ducted or unducted available are Open, Forced air, Encapsulated, Compound filled, Sand Resin, Liquid filled. 

Trans Is Used to Design

  • Machine tool transformers
  • Aircraft & military transformers
  • Capacitive input filters
  • Auto-transformers
  • Inverter transformers
  • Rectifier transformers
  • Large step-up or step-down transformers
  • Distribution transformers (OVDT or oilfilled)
  • Isolation transformers
  • Welding transformers
  • Harmonic mitigating transformers

Our TRANS package also includes our auxiliary programs of X-Analysis (Extended Analysis), Database (Custom Database Program), and MasterFile (Master File Creator) at no additional cost.

Notable Features

  • Internal database includes a wide variety of core types, core shapes, and core materials.  Constantly updated.
  • Flexible Conductor arrangements are permitted for round wire, rectangular wires, and foil in either copper or aluminum
  • Unrectified outputs with either leading or lagging load power factors
  • Rectified Outputs with resistive, inductive, or capacitive input filters
  • Typical modes of operation:  Automatic:  Trans picks core, wire, insulation. Semi-automatic: User enters core – Trans selects wires.  Non-automatic:  User enters core, wire, insulation
  • Temperature rise calculated for open, encapsulated, compound filled, oil filled, and forced air cooled constructions
  • Extended Analysis routines allow performance of a design to be evaluated under many conditions of load, input voltage, input frequency etc. 
  • Impedance is calculated
  • Data is easily entered by means of conversational prompting of by source data files
  • Convenient modifying features allow easy correction of entered data or modification of entered data to change a design
