5.1 INTRODUCTION
What is Transformer?
A transformer is a device that transfers electrical
energy from one circuit to another through inductively
coupled conductors.

## It can raise or lower (step up or step down) the

voltage in a circuit but with a corresponding decrease
or increase in current.
Transformers are used for many electrical devices
and come in a wide variety of sizes.

## In brief, a transformer is a device that:

Transfers electric power from one circuit to another
It does so without a change of frequency
It does so without a change in forms of energy
It construction has core that could be either:
Iron core
Air-core
Ferrite-core

## 5.2 TRANSFORMER CONSTRUCTION

TRANSFORMER CONSTRUCTION

## IRON CORE TRANSFORMERS: THE IDEAL MODEL

Several assumptions for the transformer to be ideal:
1. Neglect the winding resistance of its coils
2. Neglect its core loss
3. Assume all flux is confined to its core no leakage at
all

d) the power output by the generator

Solution

## 5.4 EMF Equation

E1=4.44N1f m volts

E2=4.44N2f m volts

13

## = instantaneous value of flux in webers = m sin 2ft

Therefore the instantaneous value of induced e.m.f. per turn, = d /dt
e = d /dt = 2f m x cos 2ft volts
Maximum value of induced e.m.f. per turn = 2f m
RMS value of induced e.m.f. per turn = 0.707 x 2f m
E1 = 4.44 N1 f m Volts
E2 = 4.44 N2 f m Volts
14

Example
A 100 kVA, 4000V/ 200V, 50 Hz single-phase transformer
has 100 secondary turns.
Determine:
a) The primary and secondary current
b) The number of primary turns
c) The maximum value of the flux

15

Solution
a) Sprimary = V1I1 ; 100k = 4000 x I1; I1 = 25 A
Ideal tranf., S1=S2; I2 = 100k/200 = 500A

## b) N1 = (V1/V2) x N2 = (4000/200) x 100 = 2000 turns

c) E1 = 4.44 N1 f m
4000 = 4.44 x 2000 x 50 x m

m = 9.009 mWb

## If the primary voltage is positive at the dotted end of winding with

respect to undotted end, then the secondary voltage will be positive at
the dotted end also. Voltage polarities are the same with respect to the
dots on each of the core

2.

If primary current of the transformer flows into the dotted end of the
primary winding, the secondary current will flow out the dotted end of
the secondary winding

## Voltage polarity and current direction

The direction of the windings determines the
polarity of the voltage across the secondary
winding with respect to the voltage across the
primary. Phase dots are sometimes used to
indicate polarities.

## 5.5 Transformer Ratings

A transformer is usually described in ratings (volts) and
sometimes in apparent power (kVA) in which the
transformer can function without overheating
Example:

Primary side

48000 VA
20 A
2400 V

Secondary side

48000 VA
400 A
120 V

## For practical transformer, efficiency is maximum when

Variable copper loss = constant core (iron) loss
Pcore(iron) = n2 Pcopper
n = fraction of full load kVA at
which the efficiency is at maximum

27

Example
A 500kVA transformer has a full load copper loss of
4kW and iron loss of 2.5kW. Find:
a) kVA output which the transformers efficiency is at
maximum
b) Maximum efficiency , taking the load power factor
as 0.75

28

14

Solution
a) At maximum efficiency,
4n2 = 2.5
n = 0.791
output kVA at maximum efficiency =
0.791 x 500 kVA = 395.5 kVA
b) Total loss at maximum efficiency = 2.5kW + 2.5 kW = 5kW
Output power = 395.5 kVA x 0.75 = 296.625 kW
Input power = Output power + total loss = 301.625kW
Maximum efficiency = (1 losses/input power) x 100 %
= (1 5/301.625) = 98.34 %

Example
A 400kVA transformer has a primary winding resistance
of 0.5 & secondary winding resistance 0.001. The
iron loss is 2.5kW and the primary and secondary
voltages are 5kV and 320 respectively. If the pf of the
load is 0.85, determine the efficiency of the transformer:

## 5.10 Open-Circuit (OC) & ShortCircuit (SC) TESTS

Purpose of these two test:

## To obtain the equivalent circuit parameters from OC and SC

tests
Magnetizing impedance (Rc, Xm)
Winding impedances (Re, Xe)

## To estimate efficiency and voltage regulation at various loads.

Enable the efficiency and the voltage regulation to be
with an accuracy far higher than is possible by direct
measurement of input and output powers and voltages.
The power required to carry out these tests is very small
compared with the full-load output of the transformer.
