Bringing electricity to millions
Power transformers are needed to transfer energy from power plants or public electricity networks to the consumer. They regulate electricity voltages and flows upwards and downwards to transfer energy cost-efficiently and to provide the necessary voltages. Learn why vacuum technology is required at various stages of the production process.
