1.2 This Standard covers single-phase and three-phase self-contained units or components of larger assemblies, 60 Hz, ANN, rated 15 to 833 kVA for single phase and 15 to 7500 kVA for three phase.
1.3 This Standard describes the special features that influence efficiency and provides modifications to the efficiency values specified in Table 1 where such modifications are necessary.
1.4 This Standard specifies the test methods and procedures for determining transformer efficiencies.
1.5 This Standard does not apply to (a) autotransformers; (b) instrument transformers; (c) rectifier transformers; (d) sealed transformers; (e) nonventilated transformers; (f) testing transformers; (g) furnace transformers; (h) welding transformers; (i) encapsulated transformers; (j) drive (isolation) transformers with two or more output windings or a rated low-voltage line current greater than 1500 A; and (k) transformers with a nominal frequency other than 60 Hz.
1.6 In CSA Standards, shall is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; should is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; may is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard; and can is used to express possibility or capability. Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material. Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements. Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
