Temperature variation with in the transformer affects the life and efficiency of the distribution transformer. The top oil temperature in the transformer depends on the type of cooling and cooling ducts/fins design and their layout. The present project investigates methods of onan transformer cooling system by means of increasing heat transfer rate by implanting the axial groves along with fins and porous region within in the cooling tubes and further optimization of the cooling process by adjusting the gravity by orienting the tube. This study is carried out by means of numerical analysis by simulating Transformer geometry in Ansys Fluent .Real case geometry of distribution transformer is used in this simulation.
