Full load condition of real transformer

  1. Aug 17, 2014 #1
    What is the full load condition of a transformer.

    Then in reference to the equation:

    Vp = aVs + Req*Ip + jXeq*Ip (the very common complex equation of a simple equivalent circuit )

    Should I use Vs= 230 V or Vp = 2300 V in full load load condition or will the magnitude of the primary voltage be greater than 2300 V in full load condition , if it is given that the secondary current is 0.8 power factor(PF) lagging.
    if so why??

    Usually we take VS, Rp, Xp but R’s, X’s and V’L that means the secondary parameters referred to primary. R’s=Rs*np/ns; X’s=Xs*np/ns V’L=VL*np/ns If np/ns=Ep/Es~ Vprated/Vsrated then V’L=VL*Vprated/Vsrated[Vsrated at no-load].
    The load p.f. it is cos(fi) –fi the angle between VL and Iload.

    R's=Rs*np^2/ns^2; X's=Xs*np^2/ns^2

    If we neglect the upstream voltage drop only the secondary voltage decreases with the load.
