A thermal design of transformers has been performed using an empirical formula. In order to reduce the developing cost and time, CFD analysis is used in thermal design process for gas-insulated transformers. We calculated the pressure loss of coolant and the temperature rise of winding with empirical formulas and CFD analysis. Also, we constructed some real machines and compared the analytic results with the experimental data. The comparison shows a good agreement between the CFD calculations and experimental results.
