In a smart grid, there will be more customer participation, large scale integration of renewable at the customer site, formation of micro grids etc. This would require the traditional 50/60 Hz distribution transformer to be replaced by more sophisticated (intelligent) transformer to route the power efficiently. This new transformer should have all the functionalities of the traditional transformer apart from having its own intelligence to provide ancillary services to the grid. It employs of power electronic converters and medium frequency transformer to achieve the functionalities like high power density, intelligent power management etc.
