Using Voltage Regulation to find load capacitance (Transformer)

  1. Sep 9, 2012 #1
    Hi,
    I did an experiment, involving transformers. Where we did open circuit and short circuit tests then test with a resistor, capacitor and inductor.

    For the last question it asks Calculate the load capacitance and inductance from the voltage regulation readings.

    Voltage regulation readings were: Capacitors -

    Initial Voltage (Switch off) Final Voltage (Switch on) Voltage Regulation
    110.2 V 110.5 V -0.271%

    Inductors -

    Initial Voltage (Switch off) Final Voltage (Switch on) Voltage Regulation
    110.4 V 110.1 V 0.272 %


    THREE LOADS
    Capacitors -

    Initial Voltage (Switch off) Final Voltage (Switch on) Voltage Regulation
    110 V 110.9 -0.812 %

    Inductors -

    Initial Voltage (Switch off) Final Voltage (Switch on) Voltage Regulation
    110 V 107.9 V 1.95 %

    Help please I think i am missing something because I am not sure of the linking formulea.
