The Redesigning of Transformers Fins in Terms of Heat Transfer Rates
Keywords:Transformers, Fins Geometries, Cooling, Coolants
Statistical and analytical research were carried out in order to optimize geometrical variables for organic convective heat flow from the Transformers tank, and several fin designs for transformers assembly were presented for geometrical optimization. The original rectangle, wavy, trapezoidal, as well as triangular fin geometries were used in the computational fluid dynamics research.
