Sharepart step-up transformer installed at Wilhelmshaven Power Plant

Request for Spare received on 15th of January from our German colleagues to help them out for the unforeseen outage on their step-up transformer. Delivery on site and Transfer of Title happened the 5th of February.

Last Friday, 22th of March, the 400kV transformer has been energized. During the week-end it ran under no load and starting from today the Power Plant its auxiliaries will be connected.

Due to the firm collaboration of the local technical team (S. Blind), Laborelec (M. Heylen), MP&C/MCC teams (Ch. Bouwmeester, M. Laire) and Sharepart - GDF SUEZ succeeded in installing the spare transformer of 400 ton in less than 60 calendar days.

Investigating complex electromagnetic problems with finite element simulations

Conducting measurements on equipment is sometimes not possible due to, for instance, geometry, location, or even budget restrictions. In these cases, Laborelec can still provide accurate information thanks to its extensive simulation capacity.

Laborelec uses the finite element method to construct realistic models of cable joints, high-voltage cables, and complex earthing networks, among other things. In our models, we include the equipment’s geometric and material characteristics. We also incorporate boundary conditions, such as the amount of current or voltage, or the temperature to which the equipment is exposed. Using our models, we can carry out numerous types of simulations, from electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic to current, voltage, and heat simulations. These simulations can provide valuable information in a large number of complex problems.
