Keep your energy costs and CO2 emissions low with the Powerstar SO-LO™ range of super low loss amorphous core transformers, the only amorphous core transformers designed and manufactured in the UK.

The amorphous advantage

The super low loss amorphous core present in our Powerstar SO-LO™ transformers deliver the highest efficiencies and reduce the number of unnecessary losses, equating to savings on operating costs and reductions in CO2 emissions.

ThePowerstar SO-LO™ amorphous metal distribution transformers (AMDTs) contribute to improving site resilience and can assist in protecting against issues in the grid supply voltage, such as fluctuations. It allows for cost-effective infrastructure upgrades to be carried out with minimal disruption to operations – a huge advantage for many commercial sites.

The benefits of an amorphous core transformer over a traditional CRGO transformer are multiple and include:

  • Up to 75% lower core loss than CRGO transformers
  • Achieves significant consumption savings compared to older, traditional HV transformers
  • Lessens environmental impact by reducing CO2 emissions
  • Simple non-invasive energy efficiency system
  • Gain instant energy consumption savings
  • Increase plant output and profitability for wind farm applications
  • Guaranteed savings against conventional CRGO transformers
  • Reduce operating costs

The difference at the core of the solution…

Due to the molecular structure of the amorphous core found within the Powerstar SO-LO™ transformer, it provides reductions to no-load core losses, illustrated in the tables below. This is due to the random pattern that the metal atoms form compared to the rigid structure found within silicon steel, combined with a ribbon thickness of only 0.025mm, and high electrical resistivity, it allows for lower hysteresis losses because less energy is wasted during the magnetisation and demagnetisation cycles of the supply current.
