We have proposed a 100 MVA, 3 phases, 154 kV class HTS transformer which will substitute for 60 MVA conventional transformer. In this paper, we designed conceptually the structure of the superconducting windings of a single phase 33 MVA transformer. The power transformer of 154 kV class has a tertiary winding besides primary and secondary windings. So the HTS transformer should have the 3rd superconducting winding, it makes the cost of the HTS transformer high and the efficiency low. Further more we considered On Load Tap Changer (OLTC) in HTS power transformer. OLTC equipment is required for fitting to a power transformer by which the voltage ratio between the windings can be varied while the transformer is on load. We analyzed the electrical characteristics of the HTS transformer such as magnetic stress and AC loss.
