Sol. Core loss consisting of eddy current loss and hysteresis loss.
i.e., core loss= eddy current loss+ hysteresis loss.
Core loss is mainly due to magnetic properties. So, core loss is also called magnetic loss.
Copper loss is due heat generated due to resistance of winding.
Sol. An open circuit test is also known as a no-load test. It is used to find the iron loss at the rated applied voltage to the primary side. Iron loss of the transformer is not varying with a change in load. The iron loss also helps to determine the voltage regulation and efficiency of the transformer. Open circuit test of a transformer is carried out on the low voltage side by keeping the high voltage side open.
Sol. % regulation= (R cosϕ+X sinϕ)×100
For resistive load: 𝟇=0⁰
∴% regulation=3×1+6×0=3%=200×3/100=6 V
∴Terminal voltage=200-6=194 V
Sol. Transformer Oil is basically an Insulating Oil.
An Insulating Oil must have the following properties:
Excellent dielectric properties resulting in minimum power loss.
High resistivity leading to better insulation values between windings.
High flash point and thermal stability facilitating reduction in evaporation losses.
Low volatility etc.
Sol. During short-circuit test of a transformer, low voltage side is short-circuited and during open circuit test, high voltage side is open circuited.
Sol. As we know, the transformer is a static device based on the principle of mutual
induction with no rotating part, so there is no frictional loss.
Sol. Load for maximum efficiency.
(S_η)max =S_full load √(P_i/P_cufl )
=100 kVA√(1/2)=70.7 kVA
Sol. Iron loss given by
∴P_i/f=a+bf………STRAIGHT line with positive slope
Sol. The secondary winding of the current transformer is always kept closed because if it open-circuited, the current transformer would develop an extremely high voltage across the secondary terminals. It may lead to damage to the transformer insulation as well as arcing across the terminal.
Sol. η=√(Pi/Pcufl )=√(400/800) ×100=70.7 %
