CHAPTER 5: Transformer
1.

A transformer has 600 primary turns connected to a 1.5kV supply.
Determine the number of secondary turns for a 240V output voltage
assuming no losses.

2.

A transformer has a primary to secondary turns ratio of 1:15. Calculate the
primary voltage necessary to supply a 240V load. If the load current is 3A,
determine the primary current. Neglect any losses.

3.

A 20 resistance is connected across the secondary winding of a singlephase power transformer whose secondary voltage is 150V. Calculate the
primary voltage and the turns ratio if the supply current is 5A, neglecting
losses.

4.

A transformer takes a current of 1A when its primary is connected to a
300V, 50Hz supply, and the secondary being on open-circuit. If the power
absorbed is 120W, calculate:
a. Iron loss current
b. The power factor on no-load
c. The magnetizing current

5.

A 60kVA, 1600V/100V, 50Hz, single-phase transformer has 50 secondary
windings. Calculate:
a. The primary and secondary current
b. The number of primary turns
c. The maximum value of the flux

6.

A 3.3kV/110V, 50Hz, single-phase transformer is to have an approximate
e.m.f per turn of 22V and operate with a maximum flux of 1.25T.
Calculate:
a. The number of primary and secondary turns
b. The cross-sectional area of the core

7.

A single-phase transformer has 2400 turns on the primary and 600 turns on
the secondary. Its no-load current is 4A at a power factor of 0.25A lagging.
Assuming the volt drop in the windings is negligible, calculate the primary
current and power factor when the secondary current is 80A at a power
factor of 0.8 lagging.

8.

A transformer has 1200 primary turns and 200 secondary turns. The
primary and secondary resistances are 0.2 and 0.02 respectively and
