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

Powerstar SO-LO launch event

To celebrate the launch of Powerstar SO-LO, a launch event will be held at the Powerstar head offices in Sheffield on Wednesday, 19 September, 2018, to provide attendees with a complete understanding of the capabilities and benefits of the smart transformer. The event will also include a live demonstration of the transformer’s remote monitoring capabilities in addition to presentations from industry expert guest speakers and a light lunch.

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.

The Powerstar 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
  • Delivers greater consumptions savings, on average, compared to traditional CRGO transformers
  • Contributes towards CSR by reducing CO2 emissions
  • Simple non-invasive energy efficiency system
  • Gain instant energy consumption savings
  • Remote monitoring allows for greater visibility of transformers operations
  • Reduce operating costs
  • The expected lifespan of up to 50 years

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. 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.
