Homework Help: Transformers connected in wye-delta

  1. May 31, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Three single phase transformers rated 100kVA, 13.2kV/2.4KV are connected in wye-delta on a 3-phase, 18kV line.

    I need to find the maximum load that can be connected to the transformer bank and the outgoing line voltage.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I am completely stuck, so far I've got:
    Voltage across primary is 2.4kV therefore voltage across secondary is 13.2kV

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This can't be right can it? Do you have a 2.4KV transformer connected to an 18KV line?

    I'm not 100% sure if that's what the question is implying as I'm completely stuck on it.
    Thanks for the quick reply though.

    Well, I don't know how 3 phase transformers are voltage rated, as I haven't studied them. However, if the voltage of a Delta is measured from phase to phase and voltage of a Wye is measured neutral to any phase, then you don't use the factor of sqrt(3).
