Transformer Phasing: The Dot Notation and Dot Convention

 Transformer Phasing: The Dot Notation and Dot Convention The Dot Notation Generally, when we study about Transformers, we assume that the primary and secondary voltage and currents are in phase. But, such is not always the case. In Transformer, The phase relation between primary and secondary currents and voltages depends on how each winding is wrapped around the core. Refer …

Transformer Efficiency, All day Efficiency & Condition for maximum Efficiency

Transformer Efficiency, All day Efficiency & Condition for maximum Efficiency Efficiency of Transformer Transformer efficiency may be defined as the ratio between Output and Input. Efficiency = Output/Input On specified Power factor and load, the Transformer efficiency can be found by dividing its output on Input (Similar to other Electrical Machines i.e. motors, generators etc). But the values of both …

What is the normal or average life expectancy of a Transformer ?

When a Transformer is operated under ANSI / IEEE basic loading conditions (ANSI C57.96), its normal lifeexpectancy is about 20 years. The ANSI / IEEE basic loading conditions for Transformer are: i. The Transformer is continuously loaded at rated kVA (kilo Volt Ampere) and rated Voltages (Transformer must be operated at the rated Voltage and kVA) ii. The average temperature of the …

Why Flux in Primary and Secondary Winding of the Transformer is Same? With a Simple Explanation and Example.

  Is Flux in Primary Winding always greater than the Secondary winding in Transformer? Ans: Flux in Primary and Secondary Winding is always equal. In ideal case, the flux produced in Primary winding will pass through the secondary winding, so generated flux in primary winding will be same as in secondary winding. Here is a very simple example to explain …

Transformer Regulation With Example.

A Transformer will generally provide a higher output voltage when no load is attached to it than when the transformer is fully loaded at nameplate capacity. Stated differently, under load, a transformer’s output voltage drops slightly. Transformer’s Regulation is the ratio of the difference between transformer’s No Load Output Voltage to its Full Load Output Voltage expressed as a Percentage …

Ideal Transformer

Ideal Transformer An ideal transformer is that one, in which no losses occur, in other words, The Transformer Input is equal to the Transformer Output. Transformer input Power = Transformer Output Power. PIN = POUT. Also, VIN = VOUT.  and, IIN = IOUT. In simple words, in ideal transformer, Input Current is equal to out put current as well as …
