Methodology for Efficiently Reducing Inrush Current in Transformers - MERITO
The MERITO project is led by Ormazabal as part of the Basque Regional Government's "HAZITEK" programme. It is carried out during 2017 and 2018.
The main aim of the project will be to develop an integrated start&stop system of electrical distribution transformers that can limit the inrush current generated when connecting the transformer and the surges that are generated when disconnecting the transformers in a vacuum (breaking the magnetisation current).
MERITO is a project co-funded by the BASQUE REGIONAL GOVERNMENT and the EUROPEAN UNION through the European Regional Development Fund 2014-2020 (FEDER)
