Electrical transformer 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 to ensure that the final product is arrived at 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 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.
As such, 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 distribution 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.
However, copper does not come cheap and so the cost of high-efficiency transformers is much higher than standard models. One would be foolish to make their mind up about which model to choose on this basis alone, though, because the reality is that with the efficiencies of your transformer optimised, long-term savings are guaranteed that will more than recoup the initial outlay.
