A comparative between IEEE and EN in the transformer derating when supplying nonsinusoidal load current. A practical case

Abstract: Nowadays, power quality is a challenge for the distribution companies since the new energy policies are directed to a distributed generation system with power electronic based technologies. The reduction of distribution transformers capability when supplying nonsinusoidal load currents has a major impact within capacity reduction in distribution networks produced by technical losses. IEEE Std C57.110-2018, EN- 50464-3 and EN-50541-2 define procedures to derate transformers when supplying nonsinusoidal load currents. The aim of this paper is to compare these procedures through a real case distribution transformer that suffers problems due to high levels of current distortion.
