Ferroresonance Guidelines for Modern Transformer Applications

Based on extensive field tests, this research had the following objectives:

  • Characterize ferroresonant behavior when grounded-wye padmount transformers are switched.
  • Develop formulas for estimating ferroresonant overvoltage magnitude as a function of transformer and cable parameters.
  • Provide detailed guidelines specifying the maximum cable length which can be switched with a given transformer without exceeding a critical overvoltage magnitude.
