UrBC, Yekaterinburg, September 16, 2016. Rosset’s Federal Grid Company got fourteen of its 110-kilowatt and 220-kilowatt voltage transformer sets replaced with new ones at Urengoy, a 220-kilowatt substation in Yamalo-Nenetsky Autonomous Region.

Federal Grid Company United Energy Systems Western Siberia’s PR & Media Center reports the replacement resulted in more reliable power supply to the largest oil and gas companies in the area and to the town of Novy Urengoy (population over 110,000 people).

‘Transformer sets got replaced within the framework of the company’s investment program. The new equipment’s advantage lies in its compactness, energy efficiency, a long lifespan, and resistance to ferroresonance,’ the Center says.

The voltage transformers’ function is to decrease excessive electric potential and thus ensure power supply to and unfailing performance of protective relays, measuring devices and meters, and alarm systems. Transformers are also used to gauge the distribution network’s potential.
