The proposed work studies numerically the mixed convection heat transfer in a station electric transformer MV / LV for the public distribution of a neighborhood located in the town of Bechar (Sahara region) in the south-west Algeria. Taking into account the climatic conditions measured during the summer period , introduced as boundary conditions using the Fluent CFD based on the finite volume method. In order to get results presented in form the isothermal and the stream function and the profile of the evolution of the temperature and velocity components of the air inside the station.The objective of this study is to analyze the results of the distribution of temperature, aeration of the position and the flow of air to the interior of the station.The influence of the number and location of openings in the station is studied.
