Low Frequency Transformer

Read the basics of solid state transformers (SSTs) and the impact they may have on power quality.


SSTs are an emerging technology and very young at this stage in their development. There are many companies currently working on, or have products already developed. Currently, the cost of SST are higher than the conventional simple low frequency models. Initial deployments will be limited to problem locations that require the advantages of an SST. As volumes increase, eventually costs will drop and reliability will rise to the point where SST may be the default transformer rather than the exception...
