Our products are customizable for a wide range of applications and requirements including loss limitations, noise levels, dimensions and weights. Skipper transformers find application in Power Generation, Transmission & Distribution, Rural Electrification, Industrial Installations, Railway Electrification and Mining segments.


Design and Engineering are the focal points for Skipper’s customized transformer product offerings and our competent and experienced engineers go to the extra mile in adopting best designs and engineering practices by embracing latest technologies.


Skipper believes in incremental improvement in every product by virtue of strong focus on Research & Development. The designs are continuously optimized and validated through various tests. Latest software applications, machinery and highly skilled, trained Engineers and Technicians help in delivering reliable, efficient and long lasting products for our customers with diverse needs. Skipper employs a number of qualified engineers specialized in Design and R&D functions to adopt and implement latest design softwares for efficient design of transformers as shown in figure.


Manufacturing Process:

Skipper manufacturing plants are equipped with contemporary machinery for quick and efficient production. The high quality production line is complimented with the diligent services of trained workforce to deliver products, which meets diverse requirements of the customers and stand the test of time. The Quality Management System is followed very religiously to ensure high quality in optimal time.

Winding Section:

Skipper transformer coils are usually circular and concentrically placed on core limbs, but coils in rectangular shape are also employed for distribution transformers.

The conductor design uses thermally upgraded paper as conductor insulation for select applications with a view to impart higher temperature withstand capability and higher overload capacity. Skipper uses finest quality Kraft paper covered conductor as well as special CTC (Continuously Transposed Conductor) in transformer windings. The electrical grade Kraft paper used for covering winding conductors and leads is procured with low conductivity of aqueous extract.

Copper with high controlled proof mechanical strength is utilized for higher rating transformers to impart high short circuit withstand strength. The use of high mechanical strength copper ensures adequate strength even after repeated short circuit faults, ensuring long service life of transformers. The major insulation is pre-compressed press- board, which has higher mechanical strength and stability to withstand Short Circuit Forces. Skipper uses different types of windings to achieve

Vertical Winding Machines Capacity upto 25 Tons Fully Air Conditioned Winding Areas

Since the life and efficiency of a transformer largely depends upon its windings, Skipper lays special focus on its winding operations. The winding for the transformers is carried out in a dust-free environment, both in Horizontal and Vertical Machine in the winding assembly area, rigorous quality and cleanliness standards are followed. Skipper’s stringent quality process ensures high-quality components and tight manufacturing tolerances, which entails excellent control on all performance and operational parameters.

Core Assembly Line

Skipper transformers are “core-type” characterized with Mitre Type Joints in thin, highly permeable magnetic core laminations. This consequently results in a high performance core with low losses, low no-load current and minimal noise levels. The laminations are assembled in step-lap construction, thereby improving the above performance parameters. Skipper’s core clamping method gives sturdy support and short-circuit strength to the windings by creating even pressure across the silicon steel sheets and keeping them firmly pressed against each other. This robust design helps to keep the core free from damage and distortion during transportation.

Vacuum Phase Drying (VPD)

All coils are compressed by hydraulic press as per the calculated force required to achieve the final compressed dimension of winding. All lead supports, winding connection and OLTC connection are completed before drying the complete Core Coil Assembly in the Vapour-Phase drying plant.

Core–Coil Assembly Line

Core and coil assembly is carried out in a controlled environment, which utilizes a dedicated ventilation system to keep away moisture and foreign objects. All LV, HV & Tapping coils are lowered carefully into the limb of the core to carry out each phase assembly individually.

The required gap in each winding is maintained by solid pre-compressed board sticks.  At top and bottom spacers, Angle rings & perma wood board ring are provided to achieve the strength against the short circuit and Creepage distance to with stand high voltage.

Skipper is always committed to serve its customers by meeting the stated as well as implied product standards and providing solutions exceeding customer satisfaction levels. In our bid to provide high quality and reliable products, our product designs are continuously optimized and validated through various routine, special and type tests.

All transformers are subjected to routine tests and measurements in accordance with IEC/IS standards. Our test laboratories are fully equipped with latest testing equipment to conduct the routine tests as per IEC 60076/ IS 2026 standards.

In our EHV Laboratory, the required power source to perform tests like No Load Losses, Load Losses, Temperature Rise Test, Applied Voltage Test (at 50 Hz) and Induced over voltage test with PD measurement (at 200Hz) is through 6 MVA 690V Static Frequency Convertor (SFC), which converts incoming supply source at 690V to 690V ±10% output at any frequency between 40-200Hz and fed to source test transformer.

The SFC is based on low voltage IGBT Technology on DC and AC side with a built-in solution and special filter technology.

360KJ (Expandable) Impulse Generator with 3 Channel Partial Discharge Testing Facility

All Power Electronic is housed in IP21 cabinets in a closed room (comparatively much smaller than Motor- Generator Hall) The modules allow single phase testing without changing its connections and allow independent setting of voltage and frequency in both single and three phase modes. SFC is controlled remotely via industrial PC using Profibus link. All parameter and alarm signals are displayed on the remote monitor of industrial PC

  • TLM (Transformer Losses Measurement system) based on proven current compensator technology is also integrated with SFC
  • Capacitor Bank on H.T side of Intermediate testing transformer connectable in single phase, 2 phase,3 phase combinations are provided.

In addition, type tests and special tests are conducted at NABL accredited laboratories such as CPRI and ERDA to validate our designs as per customer requirement.
