Ground-mounted distribution transformers

ANSI/IEC standards

Ground-mounted distribution transformers are used to step down three-phase high voltage to low voltage for energy distribution, mainly in metropolitan areas and for industrial applications.

In standard versions they are three-phase hermetically sealed, free breathing with/without conservator type, and can be installed both outdoor and indoor.

Flexible corrugated tank walls or radiators enable sufficient cooling of the transformer and compensate for changes in the oil volume due to temperature variations during operation.

Larger ground-mounted transformer can also be supplied with on-load tap changer (OLTC).

Product scope

  • Rated power: up to 10,000 kVA
  • Rated voltage: up to 36 kV
  • Cooling type: ONAN / ONAF / ODAF
  • Available fluids: mineral oil and ester fluids (natural and synthetic)

Get to know more

  • The EcoDesign Directive of the European Union and the related Regulation 548/2014 for transformer losses requires manufacturers to publish on the internet information on rated power, load loss, no-load loss and weight and type of the major components of typical transformers, which are compliant with the Regulation on. Such typical values are specified under EU EcoDesign product information for Tier 1 requirements.
  • Load loss and no-load loss values are maximum values with 0% upwards tolerance. If a value exceeds at factory routine testing the maximum value, the transformer is not compliant with the Regulation and it is not allowed to use it in the EU.
  • Note that the values indicated for the weights depend on each specific transformer specification and may vary. The values also depend on the exact grade of electrical steel to be used. Transformer designs and materials used are constantly changing with changing materials prices.
  • Hitachi ABB Power Grids can also provide transformers according to Tier 2 loss requirements and even lower losses. Hitachi ABB Power Grids is the leading manufacturer for ultra-efficient transformers,  as a company being itself fully dedicated to energy efficiency, and able to consult you for energy efficiency and sustainability.

Digital distribution transformer for ANSI / IEC standards

Hitachi ABB Power Grids’s new TXpert™ distribution transformer provides valuable information on how the transformer is operating using integrated sensing technology.

Integrated sensing technology gathers data which can be used to calculate transformer consumed life and overall operating conditions. Data is stored for up to 20 years fully encrypted using the latest technology.

The internal WiFi network on TXpert is capable of connecting to several communications mediums using standard protocols using best practices in cyber security.  When wide area communications are enabled, real time data is available to transmit network conditions.

Resilient solution for distribution transformers in harsh environments

Utilities and industrial companies recognize the many causes of transformer tank degradation and are turning to stainless steel. However, stainless can be heavier and larger, creating the need for new pads and civil work at the replacement site.  With TXtreme, the transformer looks like a regular unit but has a coating system sturdy enough to outlast environmental factors.


The transformer incorporates breakthrough technology that is designed to provide the extra protection needed from harsh environments. The unique coating is on the tank, joints and cooling system. The new patented* coating system can survive the elements and help reduce operations and maintenance costs because there is no longer a need to touch up or repaint the transformer due to corrosion. Additionally, TXtreme provides superior protection against leaks.
