The proposed technique simplifies the calculations, reduces the estimated time to determine the operating parameters of the power transformer with the required accuracy. The proposed technique was tested on the example of the power transformer TM 1000/10/0.4. It is shown that with increasing maximum load time, the efficiency of the transformer increases and asymptotically approaches the maximum value. </p>}, number={2}, journal={Electrical Engineering and Power Engineering}, author={Pidlisniy O.S., O.S. and Lushchin, S.P.}, year={2020}, month={Dec.}, pages={32–39} }
