Abstract

The Dynamic Thermal Rating (DTR) technology can enable additional loading capabilities for transformers, which is important as the distribution networks become more and more loaded due to electrification of transport and heating. The paper presents an advanced concept for efficient use of transformers leveraging the DTR technology, which was developed and pilot-tested in the scope of the TrafoFlex project. In this paper we describe the concept, the selection of pilot locations and the measurement infrastructure that was set up for the ultimate goal of developing, testing, and validating a multi-physics thermal model of transformers that accounts for different types of substations and thus allows for generalization to other transformer locations.
