TRANSFORMER VOLTAGE

is the induced voltage of mutual induction in the secondary


coil.
TRANSFORMER ACTION
is the action that creates the emf.
PRIMARY COIL
is the coil thats connected to the primary source of supply or
takes electrical energy from AC source of supply.
SECONDARY COIL
is the coil which the voltage of mutual induction is induced and
which feeds energy to the load. It received energy by
electromagnetic induction and deliver to loads.
Mutual flux changes in magnitude and direction. There still be
created an induced emf in secondary winding Es and induced

emf in primary winding Ep.


Note:
both induced emfs are created by the same mutual flux.

coils are form wound and are of the cylindrical type. The
general form of this coils maybe circular or oval. In small type
size core type transformer, a simple rectangular core is used
with cylindrical coils which are either circular or rectangular in
form. but for large size core type transformer round or
circular cylindrical coils are used.

All day efficiency also known as commercial efficiency. The all


day efficiency of the transformer. The ration of electrical energy
(kilowatt-hours) output delivered by the transformer in a 24hour period to the energy input in the same period of time (or
a day operation.)

When transformer is loaded:


- energy copper loss is present (but not constant)
- energy coreloss is present (it is constant)
- energy output is present.
Note:
1. Full load values/rated values must always be given
(reference data).
2. Solutions maybe in a tabulated form.
3. When transformer is loaded 24 hrs a day operation, energy
coreloss is always constant to be multiplied by 24 hrs .
Condition that may arise later in problem;
a) No load condition (transformer is unloaded) energy copper
loss is zero. Energy coreloss is constant. Energy output is zero.

b.) when primary is connected from the source energy


copper loss is zero. Energy coreloss is zero. Energy output is
zero.

Three-Phase Transformer Connections:


There are only 4 possible transformer combinations:
1. Delta to Delta - use: industrial applications
2. Delta to Wye - use : most common; commercial and industrial
3. Wye to Delta - use : high voltage transmissions
4. Wye to Wye - use : rare, don't use causes harmonics and
balancing problems.
A three- phase transformer is made of three of sets of primary
and secondary windings. Each set wound around one leg of an
iron core assembly. Essentially it looks like three single phase
transformer sharing a joined core as in fig. below.

Three phase transformer core has three sets of windings.

Those sets of primary and secondary windings will be connected


in either or Y configurations to form a complete unit.
Whether the winding sets share a common core assembly or
each winding pair is a separate transformer, the winding
connection options are the same:

Primary - Secondary

Y
Y

The reasons for choosing a Y or configuration for transformer


winding connections are the same as for any other three-phase
application: Y connections provide the opportunity for multiple
voltages, while connections enjoy a higher level of reliability
(if one winding fails open, the other two can still maintain full
line voltages to the load).

Probably the most important aspect of connecting three sets of


primary and secondary windings together to form a threephase transformer bank is paying attention to proper winding
phasing (the dots used to denote polarity of windings).
Remember the proper phase relationships between the phase
windings of and Y: (Figure below)

(Y) The center point of the Y must tie either all the - or all
the + winding points together. () The winding polarities
must stack together in a complementary manner ( + to -).

Getting this phasing correct when the windings aren't shown in


regular Y or configuration can be tricky. Let me illustrate,
starting with Figure below.

Three individual transformers are to be connected together to


transform power from one three-phase system to another. First,
I'll show the wiring connections for a Y-Y configuration: Figure
below.

Phase wiring for Y-Y transformer.

ADVANTAGE OF (3) THREE PHASE TRANSFORMER vs.


THREE OF SINGLE PHASE TRANSFORMER.
a) It is cheaper and economical to operate.
b) It requires lesser space to mount the transformer.
DISADVANTAGE OF THREE PHASE (3) TRANSFORMER vs.
SINGLE PHASE TRANSFORMER.
a) If one winding becomes disabled the entire operation is
affected, thereby power is interrupted.
b) In 3 of 1, when one transformer becames disabled, the
remaining two transformer can be re-bank in open-delta (V) so
that service can be continued although at reduce capacity
(57.7%) while the damage transformer is being repaired.

This transformer is generally where it is necessary to stepup the voltage at the beginning at high transmission
lines.

V or open- provides 2- power with only two transformers.

This configuration is called V or Open-. Of course, each of


the two transformers have to be oversized to handle the same
amount of power as three in a standard configuration, but
the overall size, weight, and cost advantages are often worth
it. Bear in mind, however, that with one winding set missing
from the shape, this system no longer provides the fault
tolerance of a normal - system. If one of the two
transformers were to fail, the load voltage and current would
definitely be affected.

Delta Connections:

A delta system is a good short-distance distribution system. It


is used for neighborhood and small commercial loads close to
the supplying substation. Only one voltage is available between
any two wires in a delta system. The delta system can be
illustrated by a simple triangle. A wire from each point of the
triangle would represent a three-phase, three-wire delta
system. The voltage would be the same between any two wires
(see figure 1-3).

Figure 1-3:

Wye Connections:
Figure 1-4:

Connecting Single-Phase Transformers into a Three-Phase


Bank:

If three phase transformation is need and a three phase


transformer of the proper size and turns ratio is not available,
three single phase transformers can be connected to form a
three phase bank. When three single phase transformers are
used to make a three phase transformer bank, their primary
and secondary windings are connected in a wye or delta
connection. The three transformer windings in figure 1-5 are
labeled H1 and the other end is labeled H2. One end of each
secondary lead is labeled X1 and the other end is labeled X2.

Figure 1-5:

Figure 1-6 shows three single phase transformers labeled A, B,


and C. The primary leads of each transformer are labeled H1
and H2 and the secondary leads are labeled X1 and X2. The
schematic diagram of figure 1-5 will be used to connect the
three single phase transformers into a three phase wye-delta
connection as shown in figure 1-7.

Figure 1-6:

Figure 1-7:

Open Delta Connection:


The open delta transformer connection can be made with only
two transformers instead of three (figure 1-8). This connection
is often used when the amount of three phase power needed is
not excessive, such as a small business. It should be noted
that the output power of an open delta connection is only 57%
of the rated power of the two transformers. For example,
assume two transformers, each having a capacity of 25 kVA,
are connected in an open delta connection. The total output
power of this connection is 43.5 kVA (50 kVA x 0.87 = 43.5
kVA).

form a closed delta connection, the total output would be 75
kVA (3 x 25 = 75 kVA). If one of these transformers were
removed and the transformer bank operated as an open delta
connection, the output power would be reduced to 58% of its
original capacity of 75 kVA. The output capacity of the open
delta bank is 43.5 kVA (75 kVA x .58% = 43.5 kVA).

The voltage and current values of an open delta connection are


computed in the same manner as a standard delta-delta
connection when three transformers are employed. The voltage
and current rules for a delta connection must be used when
determining line and phase values of voltage current.
Closing a Delta:

When closing a delta system, connections should be checked


for proper polarity before making the final connection and
applying power. If the phase winding of one transformer is
reversed, an extremely high current will flow when power is
applied. Proper phasing can be checked with a voltmeter at
delta opening.

If power is applied to the transformer bank before the delta


connection is closed, the voltmeter should indicate 0 volts. If
one phase winding has been reversed, however, the voltmeter
will indicate double the amount of voltage.
It should be noted that a voltmeter is a high impedance device. It
is not unusual for a voltmeter to indicate some amount of
voltage before the delta is closed, especially if the primary has
been connected as a wye and the secondary as a delta. When
this is the case, the voltmeter will generally indicate close to
the normal output voltage if the connection is correct and
double the output voltage if the connection is incorrect.

Over current Protection for the Primary:


Electrical Code Article 450-3(b) states that each transformer
600 volts, nominal or less, shall be protected by an individual
over current device on the primary side, rated or set at not
more

than

125%

of

the

rated

primary

current

of

the

transformer. Where the primary current of a transformer is 9


amps or more and 125% of this current does not correspond
to a standard rating of a fuse or nonadjustable circuit breaker,
the next higher standard rating shall be permitted. Where the
primary current is less than 9 amps, an over current device
rated or set at not more than 167% of the primary current shall
be permitted. Where the primary current is less than 2 amps,
an overcurrent device rated or set at not more than 300% shall
be permitted.

Example #1:
What size fuses is needed on the primary side to protect a 3
phase 480v to 208v 112.5 kVA transformer?

Important when dealing with 3 phase applications always use


1.732 (square root of 3).

To solve: P / I x E

112.5 kVA X 1000 = 112500 VA

112500 VA divided by 831 (480 x 1.732) = 135.4 amps

Since the transformer is more than 9 amps you have to use


125 %.

135.4 X 1.25 = 169 amps.

Answer: 175 amp fuses (the next higher standard, Electrical


Code 240-6).

Example #2:

What size breaker is needed on the primary side to protect a 3


phase 208v to 480v 3kVA transformer?

To solve: P / I x E

3kVA X 1000 = 3000 VA

3000 VA divided by 360 (208 x 1.732) = 8.3 amps

Since the transformer is 9 amps or less you have to use 167%.

8.3 X 1.67 = 13.8 amps

Answer: 15 amp breaker (preferably a 20 amp breaker)

Electrical Code Article 450-3(b)(2) states if a transformer 600


v, nominal, or less, having a an overcurrent device on the
secondary side rated or set at not more than 125% of the
rated secondary current of the transformer shall not be
required to have an individual overcurrent device on the
primary side if the primary feeder overcurrent device is rated
or set at a current value not more than 250% of the rated
primary current of the transformer.

Over current Protection for the Secondary:

Electrical Code Article 450-3(b)(2) states that a transformer


600 v, nominal, or less, shall be protected by an individual over
current device on the secondary side, rated or set at not more
than 125% of the rated secondary current of the transformer.
Where the secondary current of a transformer is 9 amps or
more and 125% of this current does not correspond to a
standard rating of a fuse or nonadjustable circuit breaker, the
next higher standard rating shall be permitted. Where the
secondary current is less than 9 amps, an overcurrent device
rated or set at not more than 167% of the secondary current
shall be permitted.

Example:

What size breaker is needed on the secondary side to protect a


3 phase 480v/208v 112.5 kVA transformer?

To solve : P / I x E

112.5 kVA x 1000 = 112500 VA

112500 divided by 360 (208 x 1.732) = 312.5 amps

312.5 X 1.25 = 390.6 amps

STARTING AN INDUCTION MOTOR


1. All formulas derived are applicable to all type of AC motors and
DC motors.
2. During staring, the current by the motor is too high about (5 to
7times its full load value) simply because at the instant of
starting, the motor is not rotating and the slip is 1.0 and the
counter emf or back emf is zero.
3. Motors should be protected at the instant of starting to prevent
damage on the windings and to lessen the effect on the other
equipment connected on the same line wires.
Note: for small motors (usually 10 hp below) use across the line,
