Existing 1000 kva transforrmer indoor type, could it increase the capacity by installing air fan cool?

Hello, We have a 1000 kva ABB oil cooled transformer type 11kv to 430v, indoors. Please let us know if the transformer capacity could increase to 10% or 15% by installing air cool fans?

Deia Bayoumi, Global Product Manager

ABB's answer

Yes, it is possible to increase transformer capacity with extra cooling system.  ABB service can help you get a more precise answer based on the results of routine and temperature rise tests, and outline drawings on the existing transformer.  A Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) report is also useful if available.
