Homework Help: Three phase full load current

  1. Oct 7, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    What is the maximum full-load primary current that you could safely design for a three phase 500 kVA transformer bank to provide if it has a high-voltage winding of 25GndY/14.4 kV?

    What does the notation 25GNDY/14.4kV really mean? Is it 25kV three phase and 14.4kV single phase?

    2. Relevant equations

    Full load current = VA / 1.73*Primary Voltage

    3. Attempt at solution

    Full load current = 500kVA / (1.73*25kV) = 11.56A *Assuming 25kV for primary voltage

    Full load current = 500kVA / (1.73*14.4kV) = 20.07A *Assuming 14.4kV for primary voltage

    A google search does turn up uses of the GndY notation, but I haven't been able to figure it out its meaning.

    Do you have the textbook's answer to this question?
