    GBE Design from 6 to 24 pulses

    GBE S.p.A. are specialised in the production of oil filled and cast resin converter transformers from 6 to 24 pulses. Two of our most recent units produced include two 2500 kVA 18-pulse cast resin transformers (22/0.69-0.69-0.69kV). These units are installed in a Northern European harbour and are part of a power supply system for incoming ships, so that they can be unloaded and loaded without having to use their own diesel engines. This order pertains to a bigger project which consists in the installation of GBE converter transformers in other main Scandinavian harbours.

    As shown in the schematic below, converter transformers can be produced with different designs depending on both the specifications provided by the final customers and, above all, the performance the transformer itself that has to be guaranteed when connected with the converter. Moreover, the design of the transformer has to take into due account the influence of the harmonic distortion and THD value.

    These type of converter transformers can be installed in traction plants, mines, marine propulsion plants, railway electrification systems, rolling mills, data centres and electrochemical processes.
