|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 .
