Modal Analysis of 160KVA Dry-Type Transformer Based on ANSYS


Article Preview

In this paper, the modal analysis was carried out on the core and cavity of a 160KVA dry-type transformer based on the finite element analysis software of ANSYS. And the simulation results of the natural frequencies and modal shapes were obtained, which provided a theoretical guidance to the design of the transformer structure, and were meaningful to reduce the vibration and noise level of the transformer.
