What Causes a Transformer to Overheat?

Picture for category What Causes a Transformer to Overheat?

Properly functioning cooling tubes are critical to keeping transformers from overheating. Transformers are especially susceptible to overheating because as they step up or step down voltage levels between circuits, energy is lost as heat in the core and windings. That heat can build up damaging insulation and leading to transformer failure.

A safe and easy way to ensure that cooling tubes are effectively dissipating that heat is to inspect them using a thermal camera.
