Abstract :

In every country, transformer is the main source for transmission and distribution. Transformer is a device which can transfer electrical energy from one place to another with constant frequency. Nowadays distribution transformers are considered among the huge and expensive equipment because of their massive iron core and heavy copper windings. The main solution for voltage change in transformer is only possible by varying the number of turns. Active power electronic transformer is a programmable device that can vary the frequency and voltage as we desire and uses power electronic converters for the same. It has offered enabling technologies for the power quality enhancement, considerable reduction in size. In addition to voltage transformation and good isolation which they bring about, these transformers are also associated with significant advantages, including considerable reduction in the size, power quality improvement, etc. Active power electronic transformers, composing an important part of the smart grid, could have many roles in that variable system. Active power electronic transformer is used later as a standard building block in more complex systems to guarantee the power quality on the HV grid side.
