The Oc and Sc Test Data Are Given Below for a Single Phase, 5kva, 200v/400v, 50hz Transformer - Basic Electrical and Electronics Engineering


The OC and SC test data are given below for a single phase, 5KVA, 200V/400V, 50Hz transformer

OC test from LV side 200V 1.25A 150w
SC test from HV side 20V 12.5A 175w

Determine the following :- 
1) Draw the equivalent circuit of the transformer referred to LV side.
2) At what load or KVA the transformer is to be operated for maximum efficiency?
3) Calculate the value of maximum efficiency.
4) Regulation of the transformer at full load 0.8power factor lagging.

(1) Approximate equivalent circuit.
From OC test (meters are connected on LV side i.e. secondary)

`cosvarphi_0^'=W_0/(V_0I_0^')=150/(200xx1.25)=0.6     sinvarphi_0^'`

`I_W^'=I_0^'cosvarphi_0^'=1.25xx0.6=0.75A`      `R_0^'=V_0/I_W^'=200/0.75`=266.6Ω

`I_mu^'=I_0^'sinvarphi_0^'`=1.25×0.8=1A  `X_0^'=V_0/I_mu^'=200/1`=200Ω

From SC test (meters are connected on the HV side i.e. primary)
π‘Šπ‘†πΆ=175𝑀 𝑉𝑆𝐢=20𝑉 𝐼𝑆𝐢=12.5𝐴

`Z(01)=V_(SC)/I_(SC)=20/12.5=1.6Omega`    `R(01)=W_(SC)/I_(SC)^2=175/12.5^2=1.12Omega`





(2) Maximum efficiency and load at which it occurs.

π‘ŠπΆπ‘ˆ= 𝐼22𝑅02



Load KVA = Full-load KVA×`sqrt(W_1/W_(cu))=5xxsqrt(150/700)=2.314KVA`

Pf =1

`%eta_(max)=("load KVA" xx "pf")/("load KVA" xx "pf"+W_i+W_i)xx100`



(3) Regulation of transform at full load 0.8power factor lag.

`% "regulation"=(I_2(R_(02)cosvarphi+X_(02)sinvarphi))/E_2xx100`

`% "regulation"=(12.5(4.48xx0.8+4.57xx0.6))/E_2xx100=19.76%`

`% "regulation"=19.76%`
