Amorphous Metal Transformers
|Licensee:||Crompton Greaves Ltd.|
|Royalty:||$300,000 plus 1% to 2.5% of sales|
Crompton Greaves Ltd. entered into a technical collaboration with AlliedSignal for manufacturing amorphous metal transformers (AMTs) for use in India and for export. AMTs are more energy efficient than conventional transformers using silicon steel cores. They can reduce no-load losses up to 80%. No-load losses, which occur when voltage is applied to the transformer, represent a major portion of the energy lost during power distribution. The energy savings by using AMTs can significantly reduce or defer costly investments for power generation. Crompton agreed to pay AlliedSignal 1% of sales in the first year, with the royalty increasing to 2.5% in the fifth year of the license.
