The Question
A single phase transformer has the following rating: 120 kVA,
2000 V/100 V, 60 Hz with 1000 primary turns.

Determine:

(A) the secondary number of turns
(B) the rated currents on the primary and secondary
(C) The maximum flux
(D) given a maximum flux density of 0.25 T, the cross sectional area of the core.

Equations used

NP (primary number of turns) VP (primary voltage) IS (Secondary current)
NS (Secondary number of turns) VS (secondary voltage) IP (primary current)

I (current) = P (Power)
V (Voltage)

The attempt at a solution

(A) NP = VP
NS = VS

1000 Turns = 2000V
NS 100V

NS = 100V
2000V

= 0.05V X 1000 Turns

= 50 Turns

(B)i I (current) = P (power)
VP (primary voltage)

I = 120000VA
2000V

= 60 A on the primary

ii I (current) = P (power)
VS (seconday voltage)

I = 120000VA
100V

= 1200 A on the Secondary

(C) I am struggling with this question i understand that I must calculate the maximum flux but am completly lost could someone please advise me in the correct direction?!

(D) as above

Any help would be great thanks!!

Part C: Remember emf = -dPHI/dt?
Part D follows immediately.
