Power transformers are an important part of the power grid. For their manipulation during transport the lifting supports are essential. The geometry of the supports depends on several factors and requirements. With the right geometry, we can ascertain that supports can withstand the lodas during use.
Based on the analysis of hydraulic jacks on the market and the statistics of past projects, we determined important geometric factors for lifting supports and distributed them in load classes. We performed static structural analysis for all geometry combinations and determined a suitable solution.
Based on the results, we created an expert system that allows the user to quickly determine the parameters of the support geometry for any transformer.
