Description : Why Transformer rating is given in kVA?
Answer : 1) The output of transformer is limited by heating due to the losses. Two types of losses in the transformer (i) Iron loss, (ii) Copper loss. 2) Iron loss depends on the transformer voltage (V). ... by load power factor. - Hence the transformer output is expressed in VA or kVA and not in kW.
Description : The kVA rating of Three-phase transformer with Voltage = 200V and Current = 100A will be : (A) 34.64 kVA (B) 75 kVA (C) 20 kVA (D) None of the above
Answer : The kVA rating of Three-phase transformer with Voltage = 200V and Current = 100A will be : 34.64 kVA
Description : 55 When a 400Hz transformer is operated at 50Hz its KVA rating is A. Reduced to 1/8 B. Increased 8 times C. Unaffected D. Increased 64 times
Answer : A. Reduced to 1/8
Description : 4] In operating a 400hz transformer at 50Hz A. Only voltage is reduced in the same proportion as the frequency B. Only KVA rating is reduced in the same proportion as the frequency C. Both voltage and KVA rating are reduced in the same proportion as frequency D. None of the above
Answer : B. Only KVA rating is reduced in the same proportion as the frequency
Description : Define kVA rating of transformer.
Answer : kVA rating of transformer is defined as the product of voltage (V) and current (I) on primary side of transformer or secondary side of transformer divided by 1000. On both side the VA rating remains ... Mathematically kVA rating is given by, kVA rating of transformer = V1I1/1000 =V2I2/1000
