Transformer Owning Cost Software
Develop a program to evaluate and optimize the lifetime cost of owning and operating distribution transformers. This tool will estimate the service life of specific distribution transformers under various overload duties, and will project the cost of owning and operating those transformers.
The approach will be general enough to accommodate individual utility practices, yet will apply standardized computational techniques. The program will be able to handle either default or user-specified thermal and economic parameters, and will include the option to correct for harmonic loading.
