A Review on Transformer Design Optimization and Performance Analysis Using Artificial Intelligence Techniques

H. D. Mehta | Rajesh M. Patel


Abstract: Transformers are the heart of electrical transmission and distribution systems. The aim of transformer design is to obtain the dimensions of all parts of the transformer in order to supply these data to the manufacturer. The transformer should be designed in a manner such that it is economically viable, has low weight, small size, good performance and at the same time it should satisfy all the constraints imposed by international standards. Many researchers have employed Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques for transformer design optimization (TDO) and performance analysis. However, the true potential of AI techniques is yet to be fully explored for TDO problems. This paper conducts a brief review of research and development in the field of transformers using conventional optimization methods, artificial intelligence based optimization techniques and suggests some of the new bio-inspired AI techniques that can be employed for TDO problems
