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.
Eco 3+ transformers with amorphous core As of 1 July 2021, all transformer manufacturers will have to strictly comply with the production of transformers classified with the term Tier 2, with the exception of specific applications, as laid down in Regulation no. 548/2014 with Phase 2. However, for over 10 years, GBE has been offering […]
ISO 45001 Certification Workplace health and safety: the personnel are the primary wealth for GBE GBE has integrated its IMS system with ISO 45001 certification to ensure safe and healthy workplaces and prevent work-related injuries and illnesses. For many years, GBE has been in possession of ISO 9001 certification related to product quality and ISO […]
Quay transformers: Shore-to-Ship Respect for the port environment, therefore, reduction of consumption, pollution and noise The regulations in port areas increasingly call for a reduction in the air and noise pollution produced by the ships moored in ports. This requirement is met by using ground power instead of on-board generation during mooring. The shore-to-ship […]
