Dantes LCC-LCA Transformer

The aim of this report is to describe an Excel tool for simplified Eco-efficiency calculations. The purpose of this excel tool is to allow comparison and evaluation of the cost and environmental impact of different transformers and do parameter studies. The evaluation results can be used in market communication and as sales support, showing the advantages of looking at the lifecycle cost.

The scope of the tool is to calculate the cash flow from the operation of the transformers and evaluate the environmental impact of electricity losses.

This Dantes report is one in a series of five describing the LCC tools developed by ABB. The others Dantes reports are: 

A summary of the experience of developing these tools is presented in the Dantes report
