GBE SpA manufactures resin transformers up to a power of 30 MVA and voltage of 52 kV, with Off Circuit or On Load Tap Changer. The constructive design of a power transformer is completely different from that of a distribution transformer. The masses involved are quite big, and at the design stage it is necessary to take into account not just the mechanical and electrical stresses but also the issues related to the materials expansion during operation. A correct distribution of the electric field within the windings must be ensured to avoid partial discharges issues or problems related to the overvoltage resonance and this is guaranteed by GBE design that considers the proper distribution of the capacities between coils, layers and parts of the coils, and to the ground. For the power transformers, the constructive design takes into account any dimensional aspects of the transformer based on the type of installation and especially the optimization of losses so to guarantee a competitive product not just considering the purchase price, but also the operation cost.
The range of solutions for low environmental impact has been revamped The growing interest in sustainability is nothing new to GBE, that, for several years, has been offering its own “Environmental Range” dedicated to installations where a limited energy load is required in the event of fire and maximum respect for the environment. This […]
A structure dedicated to the Australian market, including an assembly and maintenance facility GBE has always looked to expand into international markets, not just in Europe, but worldwide. In recent years, bolstered by the positive results achieved in Asia, Africa and Latin America, this commitment has translated into a commercial presence even further afield, […]
GBE is present in this highly competitive market with a joint venture, backed by expertise in the Far East as well Malaysia is not a new market for GBE. Indeed, we have consolidated our presence in the country in recent years, despite its proximity to our fiercest competitors in the world market, such as […]
