The paper presents the results of vibroacoustic investigations and the measurements of the acoustic pressure level (noise) of a transformer model. The measurements were taken at a full transformer load in two operation conditions: at a producer packeted core and at unpacketed core. Unpacketing consisted in loosing the screws pressing the particular core plates. Mechanical vibrations were registered and the acoustic pressure level was measured. The vibroacoustic analysis results are presented in the form of frequency spectra and the results of the acoustic analysis of the transformer under study are shown by determining corrected values of the acoustic pressure level and by a frequency analysis.
