On the evening of Wednesday the 15th of September we have an online presentation by ETEL New Zealand’s Innovation Manager Dr Dan Martin on what to consider when specifying distribution transformers for the future.

For this event we’ll be joining forces with our friends at Engineering New Zealand and the IEEE.

Due to potential Covid restrictions this will be an online presentation only.

Transformers are at the hearts of our networks, and typically last for many decades. Consequently, it pays to be forward thinking now when planning their use.

So, what do we see happening in the 2020s?
  • Reductions in network downtime as IoT provides more monitoring options on both the transformer and across the network.
  • Reductions in operating risk brought about by new materials and transformer manufacturing processes.
  • Community uptakes of electric transport and rooftop PV resulting in two way power flow, and smart transformer technology being necessary to manage this new dynamic grid.

The above considerations will be discussed during the presentation.

Following the presentation Dan will be available to take your questions.
