**Sample EE6401 Question Bank:**

1. Mention the difference between core and shell type transformers.

In core type , the windings surround the core considerably and in shell type the core surround the winding.

2. What is the purpose of laminating the core in a transformers ? (April –98) To reduce eddy current loss.

3. Give the emf equation of a transformer and define each term (April –99)

Emf induced in primary coil E1 = 4.44 fΦ mN1 volt

Emf induced in secondary coil E2 = 4.44fΦ mN2 volt

Where f is the frequency of AC input

Φ m is the maximum value of flux in the core

N1, N2 are the number of primary and secondary turns.

4. Does the transformer draw any current when secondary is open ? Why ?

Yes,it (primary) will draw the current from the main supply in order to magnetise the core and to supply iron and copper losses on no load . There will not be any current in the secondary since secondary is open.

5. Define voltage regulation of a transformer (April –98)

When a transformer is loaded with a constant primary voltage , the secondary voltage decreases for lagging power factor load, and increases for leading pf load because of its internal resistance and leakage reactance . The change in secondary terminal voltage from

no load to full load expressed as a percentage of no load or full load voltage is termed as regulation.

% regulation down = (0V2-V2) x 100/0V2

% regulation up = (0V2-V2) x 100/V2

6. Full load copper loss in a transformer is 1600 watts. What will be the loss at half load ?

If x is the ratio of actual load to full load then copper loss = x2(full load copper loss).Here Wc = (0.5)2 x 1600 = 400 watts
