IEEE C57.12.52-2012

IEEE Standard for Sealed Dry-Type Power Transformers, 501 kVA and Higher, Three-Phase, with High-Voltage 601 to 34500 Volts, Low-Voltage 208Y/120 to 4160 Volts–General Requirements

Characteristics relating to performance, limited electrical and mechanical interchangeability, and guidance to assist in the proper selection of sealed dry-type transformers are provided in this standard. Specific rating combinations are described in the range from 750 to 5000 kVA inclusive, with high-voltage 2400 to 34500 Volts inclusive and low-voltage 208Y/120 to 4160 Volts inclusive. Sealed dry-type power transformers filled with only dry air or nitrogen, at the time of filling, are considered. Other gases are not considered in this standard. This standard does not apply to other types of transformers, such as specialty, ventilated dry-type, pad-mounted dry-type, liquid immersed, instrument, regulating, furnace, mine, and rectifier transformers.

Standard for Sealed Dry-Type Distribution and Power Transformers

This standard describes electrical and mechanical requirements of single and polyphase sealed dry-type distribution and power transformers or autotransformers, with a voltage of 601 V or higher in the highest voltage winding. This standard applies to all sealed dry-type transformers, including those with solid cast and/or resin-encapsulated windings except as follows: a) Transformers described as exceptions in IEEE Std C57.12.01 b) Ventilated transformers c) Nonventilated transformers d) Pad-mounted transformers e) Liquid-immersed transformers
