Homework Help: Voltage Regulation -- Transformer

  1. Dec 19, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    5. A 415V to 11 kV transformer has a rating of 200 kVA. The winding resistance and leakage reactance when referred to the primary are 0.014 Ω and 0.057 Ω respectively.

    (a) Determine the % regulation of the transformer at 0.8 power factor lagging.

    (b) In designing a particular 415V to 11 kV, 200 kVA transformer, the primary winding resistance is to be 10 mΩ. Find the maximum winding resistance of the secondary winding if the transformer is to have 2% regulation at unity power factor.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
