Structural-Mechanics Analysis of an 10g Impact on a Single-Phase Auto Transformer
This kind of analysis enables us to determine whether local plastification / deformation of the structure can be expected due to the experienced impact loading during transportation, thus clarifying whether the impacts during transport are potential cause for the malfunction.
The responses (stresses, displacements) of the transformer due to dead load and impact were analyzed using:
- Modal Analysis
- Frequency Response function
- RSMA: Response Spectrum Modal Analysis
- Transient Analysis
