There are four main types of transformers viz.Distribution TransformersPower TransformersAutotransformersInstrument TransformersDistribution TransformersThe transformers which are used to step down the transmission voltage to the distribution voltage or the distribution voltage to a standard service voltage are known as distribution transformers. These transformers have variable load which is considerably less than ... Read More

In case of the star-delta connection of a transformer, the primary winding of the transformer is connected in star while the secondary winding is connected in delta (see the figure).Primary Winding – Since the primary winding is connected star fashion. Therefore, the primary line voltage is equal to the √3 ... Read More

The rectifiers are used to convert alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC). The advantages of increased number of phases of the AC supply are given as follows −A smoother waveform is obtained on the DC side as the number of phases of the AC supply is increased.The objectionable harmonics ...

A potential transformer (P.T.) is an instrument transformer which is used for the protection and measurement purposes in the power systems. A potential transformer is mainly used to measure high alternating voltage in a power system.Potential transformers are step-down transformers, i.e., they have many turns in the primary winding while ...

When the primary windings of two or more transformers are connected to a common voltage supply and their secondary windings are connected to a common load. Then, the transformers are said to be connected in parallel, i.e., parallel operation of the transformers. The figure shows two transformers T1 and T2 ... Read More

If one transformer of delta-delta connected transformer bank is damaged or opened, then rest of the system will continue to supply the 3-phase power. If this damaged transformer is isolated, the remaining two transformers will function as a 3-phase bank with rating reduced to about 58 % that of the ... Read More
