The efficiency of a power transformer is of the order of 98 percent.

Description : State why a transformer always have an efficiency of more than 90%.

Last Answer : As transformer is static device with no moving parts, the losses due to friction & windage are completely absent. Hence transformer has efficiency of more than 90%.

Last Answer : An ideal transformer will have maximum efficiency at a load such that copper loss equal to iron loss.

Description : For a transformer, operating at constant load current, maximum efficiency will occur at?

Last Answer : For a transformer, operating at constant load current, maximum efficiency will occur at unity power factor.

Description : The efficiency of a transformer, under heavy loads, is comparatively low because?

Last Answer : The efficiency of a transformer, under heavy loads, is comparatively low because copper loss becomes high in proportion to the output.

Description : Transformer efficiency

Last Answer : Transformer efficiency

Description : A transformer operates 24 hours day at full -load. It's full -load efficiency is : (A) equal all day efficiency (B) more than all -day efficiency (C) less than all -day efficiency (D) equal to maximum efficiency

Last Answer : A transformer operates 24 hours day at full -load. It's full -load efficiency is : equal all day efficiency

Last Answer : The efficiency of transformer is Greater than electrical Machine because there is no rotational losses in transformer and there is no air gap losses in transformer so losses is less in transformer compare to electrical machine so efficiency is higher in case of transformer.

Last Answer : Transformer efficiency is maximum when copper losses are equal to iron losses.

Description : The efficiency of two identical transformers under load conditions can be determined by?

Last Answer : The efficiency of two identical transformers under load conditions can be determined by back-to-back test.

Last Answer : In a transformer, routine efficiency depends upon load current and power factor of load.

Last Answer : The maximum efficiency of a distribution transformer is at 50% full load.
