Admin-WGC57.163 - Admin SC - Transformer Capability Under Geomagnetic Disturbance WG

This guide describes the effects of Geomagnetic Disturbances (GMD) on power transformers when there is the presence of Geomagnetically Induced Current (GIC) in a power transformer. It establishes specification parameters and performance characteristics for power transformers to help minimize the risk and impact when GIC is present in the power system. The intent is to provide background that can help evaluate the effect of GIC on a power transformer design and its GIC capability. This includes the evaluation techniques to determine the 6 performance characteristics while under the influence of GIC.
