Automatic Load Sharing of Transformer and Parameter Monitoring
Keywords:Transformer, Sensing unit, Control unit, Arduino, GSM module
A transformer is a permanent device that transfers power from one level to another. The primary goal of load sharing is to prevent the transformer from overload. The effectiveness of the transformer decreases as a result of the overload, and the windings become overheated and maybe burned. As a result, the transformer is protected by sharing load on it. This will be accomplished by using a microcontroller to connect another transformer in parallel. The load on the first transformer is compared to a reference value by the microcontroller. When the load exceeds the reference value, the additional load is shared by the second transformer. As a result, the two transformers operate effectively and harm is avoided. The sensor unit, control unit, and microcontroller are the main modules employed here. Switching is also sent to the control station using a GSM modem. The project's benefits include transformer protection, continuous power delivery, and short circuit protection.
