: single phase transformer

    urgent: single phase transformer

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A 2200/220 V, 500kVA, 50Hz distribytion transformer has been tested by means of the open circuit. the test data obtained is as follow:
    open circuit test: V(l)= 220V, I(l)= 85A, P(oc)= 1800W
    short circuit test V(h)=95V, I(h)=227.3A P(sc)= 8.2kW

    2. Relevant equations

    1.equivalent resistance referred to the low voltage side (state all assumption)

    2. resistance of the low side winding only

    3.transformer copper loss of the secondary winding during the open circuit test

    4. transformer core loss when rated voltage is applied

    5. explain if it justified to use the power input during the open circuit test as core loss?

    3. The attempt at a solution
