Salient Features
 High Dynamic Short Circuit & Mechanical Strength
 Good Impulse Withstand Strength
Low Partial Discharge- VPI process ensures void free insulation system
 Resistance to Temperature Fluctuations
 Moisture ingress resistant & immune to polluted atmosphere
 Ease of maintenance
 Environment friendly

 These transformers are safe, eco-friendly, fire-resistant, explosion proof, easy to install and easy to maintain beside being better in appearance
 Moisture ingress resistant and immune to polluted atmosphere
 Resistance to temperature fluctuations
 Good impulse withstand strength
 High dynamic short circuit and mechanical strength
 Less space and civil work needed
 Special safety features are not required
 Longer transformer life due to low thermal and dielectric ageing.

Comparison between VPI Dry Type & Resin Encapsulated Dry Type Transformers

VPI Dry type Transformer Resin Encapsulated Transformer
Zeroing corona generation is possible so to enable the transformer, not to fail prematurely  Zeroing corona generation is not possible, causing failure in coils during operation.
Economic to repair, since part of coil & copper can be easily replaced /retrieved.  Impossible to repair the transformer, since recovery of copper & lamination not possible 
The VPI /Epoxy shielded design has benefits of unequal environmental protection, high impulse level, low sound & superior short circuit strength.   Cracking of epoxy mould due to thermal cycling. 
Less weight ,smaller dimension for easier handling & installation, fire resistance & no bursting of Tank  Heavier in weight, bigger dimensions hence, difficult in handling & installation. 
VPI / Epoxy shield transformer are maintenance free  Less resistance to cracking, hence regular maintenance required.
