The growths and declines of transformer market through the decades have been driven by grid expansions, global economic crises and in recent years by emerging distributed generation, energy efficiency initiatives, and sophisticated control through smart grid and FACT systems. Every aspect of transformer design and use has evolved and will continue to evolve over the coming decades. Due to price pressure and competition, transformers are nowadays built more compactly with reduced usage of materials which consequently gives rise to quality issues. Sophisticated network management complicates the definition of requirements placed on the transformer and the definition based solely on the lowest price is no longer sufficient.
