If you’ve been following this blog for a long time, you know that we dealt with transformers a lot. This topic is interesting and much requested so we did our possible to add more publications about it.

Steven Mill, one of our active members, chose to talk about the role of cooling in the life of a transformer. You can check his essay below…


Copper loss or I2R is the main reason for the heat generated in an electrical power transformer. Though there are other losses such as hysteresis and eddy current losses which are also responsible for the heat generation, I2R is considered as the main factor.

More than 50% of failures in electrical enclosures are due to the cooling system! The automatic control of temperature is an essential intervention which guarantees the reliability and service life of your equipment.

Unfortunately, for lack of means, time or expertise, you don’t do calculations which enable you to know and manage your enclosure’s temperature automatically. As a result, the devices in enclosures overheat, they breakdown and make you spend a lot of time and money in fixing your mistakes. Your clients are dissatisfied and endure operating losses that can reach several millions of dollars in some sectors.

Faced with this issue, the worst solutions are: to install a cooling system at random, using the one you use for all your machines from habit, or simply to not install a cooling system at all.
