|Power Transformers||Distribution Transformers|
|Power transformer transfers electrical energy in any parts of electrical circuit between generator and primary distribution circuit.||Distribution transformer is a transformer for transferring electrical energy from a primary distribution circuit to a secondary distribution circuit or a consumer circuit.|
|Designed for maximum efficiency of 100%.||Designed for 60-70% efficiency.|
|It is independent of time.||It is time dependent.|
|Power transformers are used in transmission network of higher voltages for step-up and step down application and are generally rated above 200MVA.||Distribution transformers are used for lower voltage distribution networks as a means to end user connectivity and are generally rated less than 200 MVA.|
|Power transformer is greater in size.||Distribution transformer is lesser in size .|
