BHELState-owned BHEL said it has commissioned the country's first 1200 kV ultra high voltage transformer at Bina in Madhya Pradesh. "BHEL commissioned India's first 1200 kV Ultra High Voltage Alternating Current (UHVAC) Transformer of 333 MVA rating at Bina in Madhya Pradesh," a company statement said. The development of the 1200 kV UHVAC system will go a long way in enhancing the transmission efficiency from power hubs to distant load centers, it said.


The transformer has been manufactured under a controlled environment using the contemporary, manufacturing and testing facilities at the company's Bhopal plant.

BHEL had signed an MoU with PowerGrid Corp for development of this transformer which is also the largest equipment used in a substation.

A large network comprising 1200 kV transmission superhighways is being planned as part of the National Transmission Network.

For the transmission sector, BHEL has developed various systems and products which include Power Transformers, Instrument Transformers and Disc Insulators suitable for UHVAC systems of 765 kV and 1200 kV.

BHEL manufactures transformers, shunt reactors, instrument transformers, capacitors, extra high voltage circuit breakers and medium voltage switchgear at its facilities located at Bhopal, Hyderabad and Jhansi, besides providing total systems solution for HVDC, Extra High Voltage Alternating Current (EHVAC) and UHVAC Systems.
