Transformers in parallel

  1. Feb 1, 2015 #1
    For the transformers in parallel.. there's a relation
    Z1/Z2 = S2 (rated)/S1(rated)
    where Z1 & Z2 are the impedences while S1 & S2 are KVA ratings of the two transformers.
    Now why we are taking rated KVA values..??
    I mean if Z1/Z2 < S2(rated) / S1(rated)... we increase S1 to satisfy the relation but we are already taking the rated value..so we can't increase it...!!! Maybe I am going wrong..
    please correct if I am mistaken..basically I want to understand the relation practically...!!
