A Look at Transformer Efficiency Standards for 2016 with Hammond Power Solutions

Posted by Bill Hirschinger in Power

The latest Department of Energy (DOE) 10 CFR Part 431 ruling published on April 18th, 2013, also known as DOE 2016, will require all liquid-filled and dry-type distribution transformers manufactured on or after January1st, 2016 and sold into any U.S. state after this date to comply with the new energy efficiency standards. Hammond Power Solutions is happy to introduce their improved collection of energy-efficient distribution transformers, which promise higher performance and engery-cost savings for our users.

According to the DOE, the new efficiency levels are expected to reduce energy losses by an average of 18% in low voltage dry-type distribution transformers and 13% for medium voltage dry-type transformers, over current TP-1 efficiency levels. Upgrading just one 75kVA transformer to a new DOE 2016 design translates to one of the following environmental benefits...

  • 2.9 additional acres of forest in one year
  • 403 gallons of gasoline consumed
  • 1.3 tons of waste sent to the landfill
  • 3,846 pounds of coal burned.
