Siemens Low and Medium Voltage Transformer Solutions

Transformers

Siemens transformers are completely static electrical devices which convert alternating current from one voltage level to another. The transformer is used to match the voltage supply to the electrical load. They can increase (step-up) or decrease (step-down) voltages. Since no vaults are required for installation, dry type transformers can be located right at the load to provide correct voltage for the application. This eliminates the need for long, costly, low voltage feeders. Siemens general purpose transformers meet applicable NEMA, ANSI, UL, and IEEE standards.

Department of Energy (DOE) 10 CFR 431 released efficiency standards which will take effect January 1, 2016. All Transformers covered by this document manufactured after December 31, 2015 must be compliant with the new standard. See section below for more details.


Low Voltage Distribution Transformers

Siemens Low Voltage Distribution Transformers are completely static electrical devices which convert alternating current from one voltage level to another. The transformer is used to match the voltage supply to the electrical load. They can increase (step-up) or decrease (step-down) voltages. Since no vaults are required for installation, dry type transformers can be located right at the load to provide correct voltage for the application. This eliminates the need for long, costly, low voltage feeders. Siemens transformers meet all applicable ANSI/IEEE, NEMA, and UL standards.



Medium Voltage Distribution Transformers

Siemens can provide all types of Medium Voltage Transformers that are custom designed for your application. We can also be provide Siemens Unit Substations that utilize close-coupled Siemens Low Voltage Switchgear or Switchboards. You can choose from Dry-type (VPI, VPE, or Cast Coil), we can also supply Liquid-filled transformers that use a variety of insulating fluids such as: FR3 - Enviro-Temp, Silicone, or Mineral Oil.

Siemens Medium Voltage (MV) Distribution Transformers are also affected by the DOE 2016 standard. These are custom quoted for each application. These quotations will stipulate in the clarifications, the Department of Energy efficiencies being quoted (DOE 2010 or DOE 2016). If your project is expected to ship after January 1, 2016 please let Application Engineering know at time of quote so the proper standard will be quoted.
