What will happen if we apply DC volt across transformer?

Asked By: dhirendra singh | Asked On: Jul 21st, 2007

Answered by: Sunilkumar Rathod on: Aug 10th, 2014

As we know all, the frequency of DC is zero. So inductive reactance is zero. Therefore it will damage primary coil

Answered by: Shashank Lohia on: Jul 24th, 2014

Transformer coils are generally designed with a very high inductance and low resistance values. When DC voltage is applied to the primary of transformer, the change in flux would be zero, so no voltag...

Answered by: D MANISH on: Aug 5th, 2014

If any body ask this question then you can tell him 765KV, 1200KV,400KV etc. is multiple of 11?

these are not multiple of 11 then how anybody ask this question that why voltage is always multiple of 11?

Why we are preferring 4 pole alternator in the production of electric power instead of 2 pole alternator ?

Answered by: s.asokan on: Jul 28th, 2014

Speed is depend on number of poles and frequency. Commomnly all motors are used 1500 RPM and Indian standrad frequency 50hz also motor used 4 pole. In rare case nearly 3000 RPM (high speed motors, ht alternators) machines are used 2 poles.

Answered by: RAKESH KUMAR GHOSH on: Jul 28th, 2014

Because, speed is inversely proportional to number of poles for synchronous machine.

Sc test

Asked By: goel1982 | Asked On: Feb 3rd, 2010

Why sc test is performed on lv side?

Answered by: KM Mahesha on: Jul 22nd, 2014

Load are in LV side and also max SC faults occurred in Load side. If SC Faults occurs protect load and Net work system

Answered by: vasu on: Jul 21st, 2014

Generally we are conducting sc test on low voltage side because meter protection

Why is the transformer rated in kva?

Editorial / Best Answer

Answered by: NagaseshaReddy.M

Answered On : Sep 10th, 2007

kVA is the unit for apparent power. Apparent power consists of active and reactive power. Active power is the share of the apparent power which transmits energy from the source (generator) to the user. Reactive power is the share of the apparent power which represents a useless oscillation of energy from the source to the user and back again.

It occurs when on account of some »inertia« in the system there is a phase shift between voltage and current. This means that the current does not change polarity synchronous with the voltage. But the heat generated in a winding as well as the eddy current losses generated in a transformer core depend on the current only, regardless of whether it aligns with the voltage or not.

Therefore the heat is always proportional to the square of the current amplitude, irrespective of the phase angle (the shift between voltage and current). So a transformer has to be rated (and selected) by apparent power.

Answered by: kalyan sundar dalai on: Jul 5th, 2014

Transformer loss depends on voltage & current and its efficiency is depends its losses obviously its rating in kva.

Answered by: RITU on: Jul 4th, 2014

An efficiency of the transformer depends on core loss(related to voltage) and copper loss(which relates to current), and that does not depend on power factor so the transformers are rated in volt ampere

1. to develop starting torque.
2. to split phase upto 90 degree.

Answered by: manoj on: Jun 15th, 2014

Capacitors are used in1single phase induction motor to maintain pf ;no voltage drop .1single induction motor is not a self stating .the net torque in 1 phase motor is zero .by connecting capacitor at supply side required can obtained get started.

2 phase winding of induction machine

Asked By: Basireddy Malakondareddy | Asked On: Jun 7th, 2014

If we take the winding displacement as 180 degrees in 2 phase winding what will happen?

Answered by: Himang on: Jun 9th, 2014

Non uniform torque will be produced which would make the operation noisy.

Transformer reactive power

Asked By: mansoor_vm | Asked On: Jul 1st, 2010

Though transformer consist winding which usually cause reactive power change in both generator and motor but it wont affect reactive power passing through transformer why?

Answered by: Dnyanesh on: Jun 7th, 2014

In rotating motor, power factor can not be maintain at unity bcz these all are inductive, but in case of transformer, we can maintain the power factored at unity, and whenever pf is unity, there will be zero reactive power

If two systems are synchronized by having their voltage magnitudes, frequencies and phase synchronized, how does current flow as it can flow only in case of potential difference?

Asked By: prateektaneja | Asked On: Feb 25th, 2013

Answered by: ilamurugan on: May 4th, 2014

Both source becomes single source of higher capacity and at the time of syn only entities are taken for reference. Once syn done its.single.source so need of current flow within that source

Answered by: atul sudhakar on: May 2nd, 2014

In that case ,current flows due to the difference in load angle. synchronizing the system increases the efficiency of the power flow
