INTRODUCTION
 A transformer is a device that changes ac electric power at one
voltage level to ac electric power at another voltage level
through the action of a magnetic field.
 There are two or more stationary electric circuits that are
coupled magnetically.
 It involves interchange of electric energy between two or more
electric systems
 Transformers provide much needed capability of changing the
voltage and current levels easily.
 They are used to step-up generator voltage to an appropriate
voltage level for power transfer.
 Stepping down the transmission voltage at various levels for
distribution and power utilization.
WHAT IS TRANSFORMER
 A transformer is a static piece of apparatus by means of
which an electrical power is transferred from one
alternating current circuit to another electrical circuit
 There is no electrical contact between them

##  The desire change in voltage or current without any

change in frequency
 Symbolically the transformer denoted as

NOTE :

## It works on the principle of mutual induction

STRUCTURE OF TRANSFORMER

##  The transformer two inductive coils ,these are electrical

separated but linked through a common magnetic current
circuit
 These two coils have a high mutual induction

##  One of the two coils is connected of alternating voltage .this

coil in which electrical energy is fed with the help of source
called primary winding (P) shown in fig.
 The other winding is connected to a load the electrical energy
is transformed to this winding drawn out to the load .this
winding is called secondary winding(S) shown in fig.
 The primary and secondary coil wound on a ferromagnetic
metal core
 The function of the core is to transfer the changing magnetic
flux from the primary coil to the secondary coil
 The primary has N1 no of turns and the secondary has N2 no of
turns the of turns plays major important role in the function of
transformer
WORKING PRINCIPLE
 The transformer works in the principle of mutual induction

“The principle of mutual induction states that when the two coils are
inductively coupled and if the current in coil change uniformly then the
e.m.f. induced in the other coils. This e.m.f can drive a current when a
closed path is provide to it.”

##  When the alternating current flows in the primary coils, a

changing magnetic flux is generated around the primary coil.
 The changing magnetic flux is transferred to the secondary coil
through the iron core
 The changing magnetic flux is cut by the secondary coil, hence
induces an e.m.f in the secondary coil
 Now if load is connected to a secondary winding, this e.m.f
drives a current through it
 The magnitude of the output voltage can be controlled by the
ratio of the no. of primary coil and secondary coil

## The frequency of mutually induced e.m.f as same

that of the alternating source which supplying to the
primary winding b
CONSTRUCTION OF TRANSFORMER
 These are two basic of transformer construction
 Magnetic core

 Windings or coils

 Magnetic core

##  The core of transformer either square or rectangular type in

size
 It is further divided into two parts vertical and horizontal

##  The vertical portion on which coils are wounds called limb

while horizontal portion is called yoke. these parts are
 Core is made of laminated core type constructions, eddy
current losses get minimize.
 Generally high grade silicon steel laminations (0.3 to 0.5mm)
are used
WINDING
 Conducting material is used in the winding of the transformer
 The coils are used are wound on the limbs and insulated from
each other
 The two different windings are wounds on two different limbs

##  The leakage flux increases which affects the performance and

efficiency of transformer
 To reduce the leakage flux it is necessary that the windings
should be very close to each other to have high mutual
induction
CORE TYPE CONSTRUCTION

##  In this one magnetic circuit and cylindrical coils are used

 Normally L and T shaped laminations are used
 Commonly primary winding would on one limb while
secondary on the other but performance will be reduce
 To get high performance it is necessary that other the two
winding should be very close to each other
SHELL TYPE CONSTRUCTION

##  In this type two magnetic circuit are used

 The winding is wound on central limbs

 For the cell type each high voltage winding lie between two
voltage portion sandwiching the high voltage winding
 Sub division of windings reduces the leakage flux

##  This type of construction is used for high voltage

LOSSES IN TRANSFORMER

 Copper losses :
It is due to power wasted in the form of I2Rdue to
resistance of primary and secondary. The magnitude of
copper losses depend upon the current flowing through
these coils.

The iron losses depend on the supply voltage while the copper depend
on the current .the losses are not dependent on the phase angle between
current and voltage .hence the rating of the transformer is expressed as
a product o f voltage and current called VA rating of transformer. It is
not expressed in watts or kilowatts. Most of the timer, is rating is
expressed in KVA.
Hysteresis loss :
During magnetization and demagnetization ,due to hysteresis
effect some energy losses in the core called hysteresis loss
Eddy current loss :
The leakage magnetic flux generates the E.M.F in the core
produces current is called of eddy current loss.
IDEAL V/S PRACTICAL TRANSFORMER
 A transformer is said to be ideal if it satisfies the
following properties, but no transformer is ideal in
practice.
 It has no losses

## While the practical transformer has windings resistance ,

some leakage flux and has lit bit losses
APPLICATION AND USES

##  The transformer used in television and photocopy

machines
 The transmission and distribution of alternating power is
possible by transformer
 Simple camera flash uses fly back transformer

amplifier

## Todays transformer is become an essential part of

electrical engineering

THREE PHASE TRANSFORMERS

## Almost all major generation & Distribution

Systems in the world are three phase ac
systems
Three phase transformers play an important
role in these systems

## 3 phase transformers can be constructed from

(a) 3 single phase transformers
(b) 2 single phase transformers
(c ) using a common core for three phase
windings
3 phase Transformer connections

## By connecting three single phase transformers

1. Star- Star connection
2. Delta- Delta connection
3. Star – Delta connection
4. Delta – Star connection
*
*The generation of an electrical power is usually three
phase and at higher voltages like 13.2 KV, 22 KV or
some what higher, Similarly transmission of an
electrical power is also at very high voltages like 110
KV, 132 KV, 400 KV. To step up the generated voltages
for transmission purposes it is necessary to have three
phase transformers.
*
*Less space
*Weight Less
*Cost is Less
*Transported easily
*Core will be smaller size
*More efficient
*Structure, switchgear and installation of single three
phase unit is simpler
*
*The three cores are arrange at 120° from each other.
Only primary windings are shown on the cores for
simplicity.

supply.

## *The three fluxes is also zero at any instant.

*Hence the centre leg does not carry any flux.

## *So if centre leg is removed, any two legs provide the

return path for the current and hence the flux in the
third leg.

## *This is the general principal used in the design of

three phase core type transformers.
*

## *The primary and secondary winding of three phase

transformers as three phase winding can be connected
in different ways such as in star or in delta. With
suitable connection the voltage can be raised or
lowered.

## *In this section some commonly used connections for

three phase transformers are discussed.
*Star-Star connection
*Delta-Delta connection
*Star-Delta connection
*Delta-Star connection
*Open Delta or V connection
*Scott connection or T-T connection

Necessary Condition for parallel Transformer
Both transformer have
1. Same voltage ratio/Rating
2. Same polarity
3. Same Phase sequence(RYB-ryb)
4. Same percentage Impedance &
Phase shift
1) Same Voltage Ratio
* . Now say the secondary of these transformers are
connected to same bus,
*What happen if voltage ratio is not same?
Apply KVL on secondary side :
Its result voltage difference created between two
transformer

Ea-Eb ≠ 0
small voltage difference may cause
sufficiently high circulating current causing
unnecessary extra I2R loss in primary and
secondary
2)Same polarity
•Both have different polarity than in
transformer
Can’t nullify(cancel out each others
effect)Circulating current
This current create ohmic loss in
transformer Primary and secondary and
efficiency is decrease
•So transformer needed to maintain same
polarity
*3) Same Phase sequence(RYB-ryb)
*Opposite phase sequence not give
result

 Phase shift create unequal voltage
difference in transformer and it results
circulating current
