Introduction
This document details the whole of life performance requirements for the purchase and
maintenance of 2 and 3 phase pole mounted distribution transformers for use in the
RailCorp electrical network. It covers primary voltages of 11 kV and 33 kV and secondary
voltages of 125 V, 250 V and 433 V. The standard RailCorp pole mounted substation
designs allow for a weight limit of 2240 kg. The standard design is based on oil-immersed
transformers..
This document does not cover transformers used on the 2 kV network as it is in the
process of being phased out. Any replacement transformers should be sourced from
decommissioned stock.
Additional 33kV pole mounted transformers are not permitted in the RailCorp network and
this document can only be used for the replacement of existing 33kV pole mounted
transformers.
The requirements of this document apply to all new pole mounted distribution
transformers.
