Transformer parallel operation conditions
Parallel operation of transformers is required in cases such as the power to bedelivered is more than the individual transformer rating. In such cases operating two or more transformers to facilitate the power flow is possible, but certain conditions to befollowed while operating transformers in parallel condition
Conditions for parallel operation of Transformers:
Polarities of the transformers must be same (wrong polarity leads to deadshort)
The voltage rating of both primary and secondaries are identical. Thismeans that the transformation or turns ratio must be same for the transformerswhich are operated to be parallel. (Voltage ratio is to be maintained to avoidcirculation current)
Percent (or per unit ) impedance of the transformers are to be same inmagnitude and should have the same phase angle (X/R ratio should be same for transformers operating in parallel else division of load will not be proportional tothe kVA ratings of transformers)
Phase displacement between the primary and secondary line voltages of the transformers should be same (transformers of star/star and delta/star cannotbe paralleled because of the phase difference of -30
making parallelingimpossible (cannot be compensated))
Phase sequence of the transformers should be same. (Phase sequence isthe order in which the terminal voltage attains their maximum value. Therefore inparalleling the two three phase transformers those terminals whose voltageattains maximum values simultaneously must be paired up.
Conditions 1,4 and 5 are absolutely essential and must be fulfilled, condition 2 must besatisfied to a close degree and condition 3 (X/R ratio) must be satisfied in order to haveequal loading on the transformers.
Electrical Engg. InterviewQuestions And Answer
Thursday, April 28, 2011
Electrical interview question
:What is electric traction?
:Traction means using the electric power for traction system i.e. for railways,trams,trolleys etc. electric traction means use of the electricity for all these . now a days, magnetictraction is also used for bullet trains. basically dc motors are used for electric traction systems.
Electrical interview question
:How can you start-up the 40w tube lite with 230v AC/DC withoutusing any choke/Coil?
:It's possible by means of Electronic choke.otherwise it's not possible to ionize theparticles in tube. light, with normal voltage.
Electrical interview question
:What is "pu" in electrical engineering?
Pu stands for per unit and this will be used in power system single line diagram there itis like a huge electrical circuit with no of componenes (generators, transformers, loads) withdifferent ratings (in MVA and KV). To bring all the ratings into common platform we use puconcept in which, in general largest MVA and KV ratings of the component is considered asbase values, then all other component ratings will get back into this basis.Those values arecalled as pu values. (p.u=actual value/base value).
Electrical interview question
:Operation carried out in Thermal power station?
:The water is obtained in the boiler and the coal is burnt so that steam is obtained thissteam is allowed to hit the turbine , the turbine which is coupled with the generator generatesthe electricity
Electrical interview question
:Why link is provided in neutral of an ac circuit and fuse in phaseof ac circuit?
:Link is provided at a Neutral common point in the circuit from which various connectionare taken for the individual control circuit and so it is given in a link form to withstand high Amps.But in the case of Fuse in the Phase of AC circuit it is designed such that the fuse rating iscalculated for the particular circuit (i.e load) only.So if any malfunction happen the fuseconnected in the particular control circuit alone will blow off.
Electrical interview question
: what is the diff. btwn. electronic regulator and ordinary rheostatregulator for fans?
:The difference between the electronic and ordinary regulator is that in electronic reg.power losses are less because as we decrease the speed the electronic reg. give the power needed for that particular speed but in case of ordinary rheostat type reg. the power wastage issame for every speed and no power is saved.In electronic regulator triac is employed for speedcontrol.by varying the firing angle speed is controlled but in rheostatic control resistance isdecreased by steps to achieve speed control.
Electrical interview question
:How tube light circuit is connected and how it works?
:A choke is connected in one end of the tube light and a starter is in series with thecircuit. When supply is provided ,the starter will interrupt the supply cycle of AC. Due to thesudden change of supply the chock will generate around 1000volts . This volt will capable of tobreak the electrons inside the tube to make electron flow. once the current passes through thetube the starter circuit will be out of part. now there is no change of supply causes choke voltagenormalized and act as minimize the current.
Electrical interview question
:whats is MARX CIRCUIT?
:It is used with generators for charging a number of capacitor in parallel and dischargingthem in series.It is used when voltage required for testing is higher than the available.
Electrical interview question
:What is encoder, how it function?
:An encoder is a device used to change a signal (such as a bitstream) or data into acode. The code may serve any of a number of purposes such as compressing information for transmission or storage, encrypting or adding redundancies to the input code, or translatingfrom one code to another. This is usually done by means of a programmed algorithm,especiallyif any part is digital, while most analog encoding is done with analog circuitry.
Electrical interview question
:What are the advantages of speed control using thyristor?
:Advantages :1. Fast Switching Characterstics than Mosfet, BJT, IGBT 2. Low cost 3.Higher Accurate.
Electrical interview question
:Why Human body feel Electric shock ?? n in an Electric trainduring running , We did nt feel any Shock ? why?
