Abstract. The paper contains an overview of the most significant technical characteristics of converter
transformers manufactured to modernize the Slovenian Railways. The main features and characteristics of this
type of the traction drives with various intersected winding configurations are described. The referenced projects
include the first application of axial winding crossing, i.e. a technological innovation resolving the strong
magnetic coupling requirement of low-voltage windings. The solution is referred to as an intersected winding.
With one, two and three winding crossings the coupling factors of 0.920 and 0.967 are achieved. The results meet
the specifications of the SIST EN standard.
Keywords: converter transformer, designer, coupling factor, intersecting winding
1 INTRODUCTION
When designing and planning power projects, design
engineers look for the optimal solution, which usually
begins with an assessment of the overall cost of
materials of the transformer.
The procedure of designing special transformers is
similar, yet it is run in parallel with a practical optimal
solution that is determined mostly by technological and
feasibility restrictions. Consequently, such projects
present the problem of feasibility and are seldom
considered for optimization.
The first converter transformer was manufactured in
1993 for the ENP Sava power substation. As seen from
table 1 the transformer supplies a bridge-type converter
in parallel connection by using an interbridge reactor,
connection no. 9 [4] [5]. The transformers manufactured
in 1997 and 2011 were designed for a serial bridge
converter, connection no. 12. The transformers were
installed in three different power substations.
Technical requirements for each of the three
transformers were the same.
2 MAIN REQUIREMENTS AND RESTRICTIONS
The converter transformers for DC traction drive are
special transformers meeting particular requirements.
For the purpose of this paper requirements specifying
only coupling factor and short-circuit impedance with
set tolerance will be dealt with.

Though the leakage reactance is a calculated
equivalent value with no physical meaning, it is
nonetheless a good estimate for analyzing different
operating states of the electric grid. This also applies to
the coupling factor calculation determined by using the
leakage reactance ratio. Analyzing the converter drives
shows that ratio K significantly impacts the transformer
under different operating conditions, the external
characteristic being most important. A common
operating condition occurs when one of the low voltage
windings is off load and the other is under full load. A
high coupling factor can reduce the difference in
voltages on the secondary side. Because of such special
operating condition, the equivalent circuit for converter
transformers is more distinct.
Because of the intersecting winding symmetry, the
difference between leakage reactance Xps1 and Xps2 and
their arithmetic mean value is negligible
(less than 0.2 %). The equivalent reactance of the
secondary winding is derived from:
ܺ௦ଵ = ܺ௦ଶ = ܺ௦ =
ܺ௦ଵ௦ଶ
2
(3)
(Xps1= Xps2).
The magnetic coupling factor is defined as the ratio
of mutual inductance M and self-inductances Ls1 and
Ls2 [2].
The magnetic coupling factor can be calculated from
the equation:
݇ =
‫ܯ‬ଶ
‫ܮ‬௦ଵ ∙ ‫ܮ‬௦ଶ
		, (4)
which is applicable only for transformers with two
windings. The magnetic coupling factor of power
transformers is very close to 1, in the case shown in
Fig. 3d, it is k = 0.999997 and in Fig. 3a k = 0.999956.
To determine the difference between two different
solutions the factor k must be determined precisely.
Regardless of the position of the windings, the magnetic
coupling factor is always k < 1.
The converter-transformer coupling factor is affected
by the magnetic coupling of the low-voltage windings
(k). The condition where k = K = 1 is possible only in
theory, while in practice it is k > K.
A better interpretation of the coupling efficiency of
windings s1 and s2 is their leakage reactance declared as
a percentage which is also attained by a relatively
simple calculation. In practice, the condition Xs1s2 > 0 is
always true.
It is only in theory that the magnetic leakage of two
windings equals zero, if such be the case, the two
windings would occupy the same space (Fig. 2b.). In
practice such condition is hard to attain. Each winding
should be divided into small sections surrounded by
sections of the other windings. Dividing each winding
into six sections with three crossings produces a leakage
CONVERTER TRANSFORMERS MANUFACTURED FOR THE SLOVENIAN RAILWAYS 33
reactance of low-voltage windings Xs1s2 = 0.7 %
(Fig. 3d.).
Figure 2. Coupling factor for low-voltage windings
At such low values of leakage reactance, leads and
winding connection too, can be strongly impacting. This
is why the coils were turned on the winding machine
during the winding process. The procedure was
performed after each crossing so that connections
between sections were the shortest possible, thus
reducing the impact of leads on the leakage reactance.
The crossing between sections was uninterrupted.
For high currents above 1 kA the cross section of the
low-voltage connections between sections is large.
Short connections contribute to a lower short-circuit
loss and additional losses in the transformer windings.
The equivalent reactance of the primary and
secondary windings are Xp = 10.35 %, Xs = 0.35 %.
Because of Xp >> Xs, the equivalent circuit of the
three-winding transformer can be replaced with a two-
winding equivalent circuit with only one reactance Xp
and one secondary voltage Us1 = Us2 = Us (Fig. 1b.).
Strong coupling improves the stability of the
converter drive because different loadings on the
low- voltage sides do not cause different voltages on its
side. For dynamic operation with frequent overloading,
this is very advantageous for the converter transformer.
Coupling of the winding with six sections and three
crossings shown in Fig. 3d produces K = 0.967, which is
not much less than the theoretical K = 1.

three crossings (d)
2.2 Tolerances
The limit maximum deviations of the arithmetic mean
of the short-circuit impedances between winding pairs
s1-p and s2-p should not exceed the tolerance of
± 1.5 %. For power transformers the tolerances are in
the range from ±7.5 % to ±10 %. This requirement
implies that both parallel voltage sides of the converter
units are strongly symmetrical, thus assuring the stable
operation of the converter and transformer. Calculations
and final measurements reveal deviations of the short-
circuit impedances in the range of ± 0.2 %, which is
near the equipment measuring certainty. The solution to
intersect the low-voltage winding assures an almost
perfect geometrical symmetry of both the low-voltage to
the supply side.

2.3 Short-circuit impedance
The short-circuit impedance of low-voltage windings s1
and s2 should not exceed the value of 2 %. This
requirement is very restrictive if we consider that the
ohmic component can be 1 %, which means that the
inductive component must be below 1.7 %. This
condition is even worse in case of high losses
transformer. To avoid this problem we developed a new
way of winding enabling the leakage level to be low and
at the same time the low-voltage windings against the
high-voltage winding were geometrically symmetric.
The solution shown in Fig. 2c does not enable these
requirements to be achieved. The case in Fig. 3a is
technologically very simple, but with the weakest
coupling at 0.1. Considering that one low-voltage
winding is delta-connected and the other one
star-connected, their interleaving could be difficult or
even impossible to achieve. The difference in the
number of turns in the low-voltage windings and
dividing in four or six sections complicate the
interleaving even further, especially for large power
transformers, with a low number of turns. Another
problem is the insulation inside the windings, which
have to be insulated for the full test voltage.
The short-circuit impedance for the connection
shown in Fig. 3d was uks1s2 = 1.2 %.
Table 2. Summary of the measured and requested values
Requirement [4] Measurement
K > 0.9 K = 0.967
∆ukps= ± 1.5 % ∆ukps= ± 0.2 %
uks1s2= 2 % uks1s2= 1.2 %
Table 2 shows the most important parameters. The
results are comparable with the SIST EN [4]
specifications. The data is obtained from the final
measurements made at the ENP Dekani project.
3 CONCLUSION
The coupling factor of the converter transformer is the
ratio of the equivalent leakage reactance as defined in
equation (1). It depends on the efficiency of the
magnetic coupling of the secondary windings in
equation (4) and is determined by the design and
arrangement of the windings. This ratio is a significant
characteristic of the converter transformer as it affects
stability of the DC traction. It defines the external
characteristics of the converter in suppressing short-
circuit currents often occurring in converters driving
with frequent overloads [3]. The improved coupling
factor with the value of 0.967 exceeds the required 0.9
set in the SIST EN standard. This provides a more
stable external characteristic of the converter and lower
value the short-circuit currents in the transformer
windings and the converter itself.
When modernizing the Slovenian Railways, we
manufactured converter transformers that comply with
the requirements for supplying converters in two
different connections of converters 9 and 12. To achieve
this, we developed a new method of winding the low-
voltage coils with multiple intersections and minimal
connections between them. Because of the characteristic
intersection between sections of the windings we named
it the intersected winding. These windings can also be
used in other types of power transformers.

Converter Transformers manufactured to the Slovenian Railways

  • 1. ELEKTROTEHNIŠKI VESTNIK 79(1-2): 31-34, 2012 ENGLISH EDITION Converter Transformers manufactured for the Slovenian Railways Juso Ikanović Kolektor Etra d.o.o., Šlandrova 10, SI- 1231 Ljubljana, Slovenija E-mail: Juso.Ikanovic@kolektor.com Abstract. The paper contains an overview of the most significant technical characteristics of converter transformers manufactured to modernize the Slovenian Railways. The main features and characteristics of this type of the traction drives with various intersected winding configurations are described. The referenced projects include the first application of axial winding crossing, i.e. a technological innovation resolving the strong magnetic coupling requirement of low-voltage windings. The solution is referred to as an intersected winding. With one, two and three winding crossings the coupling factors of 0.920 and 0.967 are achieved. The results meet the specifications of the SIST EN standard. Keywords: converter transformer, designer, coupling factor, intersecting winding 1 INTRODUCTION When designing and planning power projects, design engineers look for the optimal solution, which usually begins with an assessment of the overall cost of materials of the transformer. The procedure of designing special transformers is similar, yet it is run in parallel with a practical optimal solution that is determined mostly by technological and feasibility restrictions. Consequently, such projects present the problem of feasibility and are seldom considered for optimization. The first converter transformer was manufactured in 1993 for the ENP Sava power substation. As seen from table 1 the transformer supplies a bridge-type converter in parallel connection by using an interbridge reactor, connection no. 9 [4] [5]. The transformers manufactured in 1997 and 2011 were designed for a serial bridge converter, connection no. 12. The transformers were installed in three different power substations. Technical requirements for each of the three transformers were the same. 2 MAIN REQUIREMENTS AND RESTRICTIONS The converter transformers for DC traction drive are special transformers meeting particular requirements. For the purpose of this paper requirements specifying only coupling factor and short-circuit impedance with set tolerance will be dealt with. Figure 1. Converter transformer equivalent circuit 2.1 Coupling factor According to standard [4], the leakage reactance ratio or the coupling factor must be K > 0.9.

This also applies to the coupling factor calculation determined by using the leakage reactance ratio. Analyzing the converter drives shows that ratio K significantly impacts the transformer under different operating conditions, the external characteristic being most important. A common operating condition occurs when one of the low voltage windings is off load and the other is under full load. A high coupling factor can reduce the difference in voltages on the secondary side. Because of such special operating condition, the equivalent circuit for converter transformers is more distinct. Because of the intersecting winding symmetry, the difference between leakage reactance Xps1 and Xps2 and their arithmetic mean value is negligible (less than 0.2 %). The equivalent reactance of the secondary winding is derived from: ܺ௦ଵ = ܺ௦ଶ = ܺ௦ = ܺ௦ଵ௦ଶ 2 (3) (Xps1= Xps2). The magnetic coupling factor is defined as the ratio of mutual inductance M and self-inductances Ls1 and Ls2 [2]. The magnetic coupling factor can be calculated from the equation: ݇ = ‫ܯ‬ଶ ‫ܮ‬௦ଵ ∙ ‫ܮ‬௦ଶ , (4) which is applicable only for transformers with two windings. The magnetic coupling factor of power transformers is very close to 1, in the case shown in Fig. 3d, it is k = 0.999997 and in Fig. 3a k = 0.999956. To determine the difference between two different solutions the factor k must be determined precisely. Regardless of the position of the windings, the magnetic coupling factor is always k < 1. The converter-transformer coupling factor is affected by the magnetic coupling of the low-voltage windings (k). The condition where k = K = 1 is possible only in theory, while in practice it is k > K. A better interpretation of the coupling efficiency of windings s1 and s2 is their leakage reactance declared as a percentage which is also attained by a relatively simple calculation. In practice, the condition Xs1s2 > 0 is always true. It is only in theory that the magnetic leakage of two windings equals zero, if such be the case, the two windings would occupy the same space (Fig. 2b.). In practice such condition is hard to attain. Each winding should be divided into small sections surrounded by sections of the other windings. Dividing each winding into six sections with three crossings produces a leakage
  • 3. CONVERTER TRANSFORMERS MANUFACTURED FOR THE SLOVENIAN RAILWAYS 33 reactance of low-voltage windings Xs1s2 = 0.7 % (Fig. 3d.). Figure 2. Coupling factor for low-voltage windings At such low values of leakage reactance, leads and winding connection too, can be strongly impacting. This is why the coils were turned on the winding machine during the winding process. The procedure was performed after each crossing so that connections between sections were the shortest possible, thus reducing the impact of leads on the leakage reactance. The crossing between sections was uninterrupted. For high currents above 1 kA the cross section of the low-voltage connections between sections is large. Short connections contribute to a lower short-circuit loss and additional losses in the transformer windings. The equivalent reactance of the primary and secondary windings are Xp = 10.35 %, Xs = 0.35 %. Because of Xp >> Xs, the equivalent circuit of the three-winding transformer can be replaced with a two- winding equivalent circuit with only one reactance Xp and one secondary voltage Us1 = Us2 = Us (Fig. 1b.). Strong coupling improves the stability of the converter drive because different loadings on the low- voltage sides do not cause different voltages on its side. For dynamic operation with frequent overloading, this is very advantageous for the converter transformer. Coupling of the winding with six sections and three crossings shown in Fig. 3d produces K = 0.967, which is not much less than the theoretical K = 1. Figure 3. Intersecting the winding with one (b), two (c) and three crossings (d) 2.2 Tolerances The limit maximum deviations of the arithmetic mean of the short-circuit impedances between winding pairs s1-p and s2-p should not exceed the tolerance of ± 1.5 %. For power transformers the tolerances are in the range from ±7.5 % to ±10 %. This requirement implies that both parallel voltage sides of the converter units are strongly symmetrical, thus assuring the stable operation of the converter and transformer. Calculations and final measurements reveal deviations of the short- circuit impedances in the range of ± 0.2 %, which is near the equipment measuring certainty. The solution to intersect the low-voltage winding assures an almost perfect geometrical symmetry of both the low-voltage to the supply side. s1 s2 a) ‫ܭ‬ = 0.1 s1 s2 b) ‫ܭ‬ = 0.8 s1 s2 c) ‫ܭ‬ = 0.92 s1 s2 d) ‫ܭ‬ = 0.967 U S1 U S2 L S1 L S1 L S2 L S2 c) k ≅ 1, Xs1s2 > 0 U S1 U S2 M L S1 b) k = 1 ( LS1 = LS2 = M ), Xs1s2= 0 L S2 U S1 L S1 U S2 L S2 M a) k ≅ 1, Xs1s2 > 0
  • 4. 34 IKANOVIĆ 2.3 Short-circuit impedance The short-circuit impedance of low-voltage windings s1 and s2 should not exceed the value of 2 %. This requirement is very restrictive if we consider that the ohmic component can be 1 %, which means that the inductive component must be below 1.7 %. This condition is even worse in case of high losses transformer. To avoid this problem we developed a new way of winding enabling the leakage level to be low and at the same time the low-voltage windings against the high-voltage winding were geometrically symmetric. The solution shown in Fig. 2c does not enable these requirements to be achieved. The case in Fig. 3a is technologically very simple, but with the weakest coupling at 0.1. Considering that one low-voltage winding is delta-connected and the other one star-connected, their interleaving could be difficult or even impossible to achieve. The difference in the number of turns in the low-voltage windings and dividing in four or six sections complicate the interleaving even further, especially for large power transformers, with a low number of turns. Another problem is the insulation inside the windings, which have to be insulated for the full test voltage. The short-circuit impedance for the connection shown in Fig. 3d was uks1s2 = 1.2 %. Table 2. Summary of the measured and requested values Requirement [4] Measurement K > 0.9 K = 0.967 ∆ukps= ± 1.5 % ∆ukps= ± 0.2 % uks1s2= 2 % uks1s2= 1.2 % Table 2 shows the most important parameters. The results are comparable with the SIST EN [4] specifications. The data is obtained from the final measurements made at the ENP Dekani project. 3 CONCLUSION The coupling factor of the converter transformer is the ratio of the equivalent leakage reactance as defined in equation (1). It depends on the efficiency of the magnetic coupling of the secondary windings in equation (4) and is determined by the design and arrangement of the windings. This ratio is a significant characteristic of the converter transformer as it affects stability of the DC traction. It defines the external characteristics of the converter in suppressing short- circuit currents often occurring in converters driving with frequent overloads [3]. The improved coupling factor with the value of 0.967 exceeds the required 0.9 set in the SIST EN standard. This provides a more stable external characteristic of the converter and lower value the short-circuit currents in the transformer windings and the converter itself. When modernizing the Slovenian Railways, we manufactured converter transformers that comply with the requirements for supplying converters in two different connections of converters 9 and 12. To achieve this, we developed a new method of winding the low- voltage coils with multiple intersections and minimal connections between them. Because of the characteristic intersection between sections of the windings we named it the intersected winding. These windings can also be used in other types of power transformers.
