The dry type cast resin transformer shall be suitable for usage under expected climate conditions. It shall be self-extinguishing and shall not produce toxic gases in the event of fire. This is verified by the Climatic, Environmental and Fire withstand behaviour test as per 60076-11. This paper gives the design features of a 1600 kVA dry type cast resin transformer which was subjected to climatic, environmental and fire behaviour (C2 E2 F1) tests at KEMA testing laboratory, Netherlands. The technical parameters of epoxy resin system, winding configuration, and clamping, etc. necessary to meet the requirements are also discussed.
