General Description

General Description

The two-winding transformer model is a highly-detailed model for various kinds of three-phase,
two-winding transformers in power systems. It can be used to represent network transformers,
block transformers, phase-shifters, auto transformers or MV-voltage regulators.
The 2-winding transformer model in PowerFactory is comprised of the 2-winding transformer
element (ElmTr2), and the 2-winding transformer type (TypTr2). The transformer element allows
input of data relating to the control of the transformer under steady-state conditions, and the
transformer type allows input of the physical properties of the transformer. For simplicity, these
will simply be referred to hereafter as the ‘element’ and the ‘type’, respectively.
The first section of this document describes the general model which is valid for all PowerFactory
calculation functions. Other aspects such as saturation or capacitive effects, which are only
relevant to specific calculation functions are described in later sections. Section 7 provides
useful tips for special applications of the 2-winding transformer model.

1.1.1

Positive and negative sequence models

The positive sequence (per-unit) equivalent circuit of the transformer is shown in Figure 1.1.
The leakage reactances and winding resistances are included on the HV and LV sides, and the
magnetising branch accounts for core losses. These losses are represented by the magnetising
reactance and a parallel resistance. The ideal transformer has a complex winding ratio with a
magnitude of 1:1 and models the phase shift representing the vector groups of the two windings.

The relation between the mathematical parameters in the model and the parameters in the
