Audio Frequency Transformer

Audio Frequency Transformer: Audio Frequency Transformer is used at the output stage of Audio Frequency electronic amplifier for matching the load to the output impedance of the power amplifier stage. Here the load is fixed but the frequency is variable over a band (audio, 20 Hz to 20 kHz), the response being the ratio V2/V1. …

Phase Conversion in Transformer

Phase Conversion in Transformer: Three Phase to Two Phase Conversion Transformer (Scott-T transformer or Scott Connection): Phase conversion from three to two phase is needed in special cases, such as in supplying 2-phase electric arc furnaces. The concept of 3/2-phase conversion follows from the voltage phasor diagram of balanced 3-phase supply shown in Fig. 3.61(b). …

Three Winding Transformer

Three Winding Transformer: Three Winding Transformer may be built with a third winding, called the tertiary, in addition to the primary and secondary. Various purposes which dictate the use of a tertiary winding are enumerated below: To supply the substation auxiliaries at a voltage different from those of the primary and secondary windings. Static capacitors …

Three phase Transformer Bank of Single phase Transformers

Three phase Transformer Bank of Single phase Transformers: The different Three phase Transformer Bank of Single phase Transformers are namely, Delta/delta connection: The supply voltage provides only sinusoidal magnetizing current so that core flux is flat-topped; but the third-harmonic emfs induced (cophasal) cause circulating currents in deltas restoring the flux to almost sinusoidal. The third-harmonic …

Choice of Transformer Connection Diagram

Choice of Transformer Connection Diagram: The different choice of Transformer Connection Diagram are namely, Star/star: This is economical for small HV transformers as it minimizes the turns/phase and winding insulation. A neutral connection is possible. However, the Y/Y connection is rarely used because of difficulties associated with the exciting current. Delta/delta: This Choice of Transformer …
