You can use dry-type transformers can both outdoors and indoors, as ventilation regulates their temperature as opposed to oil. Within dry-type transformers, there are three variations:
- Ventilated, which uses fan assistance to achieve proper circulation
- Encapsulated, which uses insulating materials like gravel, sand, epoxy, or resin to properly displace heat
- And non-ventilated, which is most appropriate for specific applications in which the surrounding atmosphere may contain conductive or combustible materials that would otherwise damage the transformer as it emits heat.
