Photos of Dead-Front Transformer Connections?

Photos of Dead-Front Transformer Connections?

Hi there guys!

I'm looking for photos to show some examples of transformer cable / elbow connector connections in a dead-front transformer.

Mine is a 12.47kV (WYE) / 600V (DELTA) transformer.

I'm curious how the neutral on the 12.47kV side would be routed, how it would be grounded (solidly to ground), and if I wanted to stick some CTs in there, specifically for the neutral, surge connectors on top of elbow connectors, etc. how to go about doing that.....

I've never spec'd dead-front transformers, hence this is new for me. And google doesn't have many varieties of examples.

RE: Photos of Dead-Front Transformer Connections?

200A load break elbows with a separate set of bushings for arrestors. No CTs
