What Are Transformers?

Transformers are electrical devices that consist of two or more coils of wire that are used to transfer electrical energy from one electrical circuit to another or multiple circuits. They are used to boost voltage levels to transfer energy long distances and then lower voltage levels to decrease line losses during transmission. Successful operation of a transformer is dependent on a few key factors including, proper installation and design from the manufacturer. That’s why it’s crucial to hire experienced service technicians to assemble and maintain your transformer.

When transformers begin to fail, it presents a potential loss of revenue and higher repair costs. With today’s aging power grids, this is a common occurrence. Diagnostic testing of transformer oil is also vital because it enables you to make informed decisions regarding your transformer and its insulating fluid to avoid costly problems down the line. When test results are uncertain or your transformer is showing signs of deteriorating, the service technicians at NCE are prepared and equipped to respond to any of your needs.
