Transformers and environmental efficiencies

Having green credentials is fast becoming a standard in all industries. With the effects of business and commerce on the environment over the past decades making themselves all too well-known, customers are calling on the companies that they buy from to make positive changes to their systems and processes. They want to ensure that products are produced with as small a carbon footprint as possible.

Energy supply is no different. An electrical transformer is just one part of the chain, but a very important part, in transporting electricity to cities and towns across Australia. However, while the power distribution transformer is seen as efficient as long as it is serving its purpose there are always efficiencies to be exploited by replacing the old standards with new models.

At CSE Uniserve, we believe in looking toward forward-thinking solutions for the energy industry and renewables industries – that will allow suppliers to maintain and exceed their current performance parameters while decreasing costs and carbon emissions.

How transformers make all the difference

When you consider the fact that a transformer facilitates the supply of electricity across huge distances as well as generation, transmission, and distribution of energy, it makes sense that they are still a key part of the energy industry. However, while functionality remains the same, there are many positives associated with high-efficiency transformers that make them a much more suitable solution for the modern world.

One game-changing difference is in the types of material used. Copper is well known for its compatibility with conducting electricity. It is a highly malleable material and has a low resistance to electrical current. Being a ductile material makes it particularly suited to use in the construction and operation of machinery and appliances, and this attribute also makes it recyclable, which ensures that there is life in it even after its use within a particular machine or device comes to an end.

In environmental terms, high-efficiency transformers have much better green credentials. The reduction in the use of fossil fuels used to generate the electricity as well as the reduction in heat generated implies a smaller carbon footprint and a longer life for the transformer. Therefore, savings are twofold in this regard, with the likelihood of replacement in the short to the medium term being greatly reduced.

Although copper does not come cheap, with the efficiencies of your transformer optimised, long-term savings will more than recoup the initial outlay.

Features of high efficiency transformers

Transformers are going nowhere. They are an indispensable part of energy supply from generation to transmission and distribution and facilitate the transportation of electricity from vast distances to keep major business hubs and civic areas operational.

The use of copper in the coils is what differentiates most high-efficiency transformers from the standard models. Copper is particularly efficient due to its low resistance to electric current and best of all is completely recyclable as well as being an incredibly malleable and ductile metal. While this drives the cost of acquiring transformers that incorporate it up, as mentioned the benefits of a much more efficient system mean that the cost of investment is quickly recouped.

An electrical transformer of this kind is also much friendlier to the environment because since less fossil fuel is burned to generate the electricity, meaning that there is less waste and a reduction of the carbon footprint for companies who choose them over standard transformers. Less heat is also generated and that is good news in terms of the longevity of the transformer itself.
