Calculate the main dimensions for a 250KVA, 3000/400Volts, 50Hz, 3-Phase, Delta /
Star, Core type, oil immersed self-cooled, outdoor type distribution transformer. Assume
suitable values for various design constants and specific magnetic loading.
Derive the expression of voltage regulation of a single-phase transformer. Also, deduce
the conditions for zero and maximum voltage regulation conditions.
Show that the specific electric loading of a rotating machine is constant provided the
current density, ratio of conductor to slot area, ratio of slot width to slot pitch & the slot
depth are constant.
A 12.0 HP, 4-pole, 3 phase, 50Hz, 440V delta connected induction motor has the
Effective turns per phase = 214, Diameter of stator = 20cm, Length of stator = 12.5cm,
Radial air-gap on one side = 0.055cm, Gap coefficient = 1.33
Find the air-gap ampere-turns required.
a) Calculate the magnetizing current of a 3-phase, 415V, 4-pole, 50Hz induction motor
having the following data :
Stator slots = 36, conductors per slot = 36, stator bore = 0.2m, stator core length
= 0.18m, effective gap length = 1.05mm, distribution factor = 0.95, full pitch
winding and iron permeability is infinite.
b) Discuss the different types of cross-sections used in the design of power and
distribution transformers. Find out the net core area for cruciform core in terms of
a) Calculate the main dimensions for a 300 kVA, 5500 / 440Volts, 50Hz, 3-Phase,
Delta/Star, Core type, oil immersed self-cooled, outdoor type distribution
transformer. Assume suitable values for various design constants and specific
b) A transformer at the design stage is found to have a voltage regulation of 7.5%. What
alterations should be made in the transformer design so as to get a voltage regulation
Deduce for a 3-phase induction motor an expression showing the relationship between
HP output, its main dimension, speed, the specific electric and magnetic loadings,
efficiency and power factor. Hence, using this expression, obtain suitable values for the
main dimensions of the stator of a 3-phase, 60HP, 2000V, 50Hz, induction motor with a
wound rotor and to run at about 600rpm.
