So as you can see from the diagram that every unit has a generator which is connected
to the grid through 23.5KV/400 KV generator transformer (GT). The generator also
supplies power to the unit transformers which are 23.5KV /11KV. These are used to
supply power to 11 KV drives.  Meanwhile the grid is connected to the same droves
through the station transformer which is 400KV /11KV transformer. The fig clearly
shows the interconnection between the unit and station transformer buses. This
arrangement is done so that if one of the unit transformer is under maintenance then
the other should take up all the load. If in case the generation had itself stopped due
to in adequate steam parameters, or some essential drive failure etc the other drives
may be kept under service by taking the power from the grid and keeping the plant
alive until the main problem is sorted out.  The main reason behind this is if due to
some interruption

The rating of this transformer (MVA rating) will be almost equal to the alternator or generator rating. And auxillary transformers are those which are used for the auxillary machines which are used inside the plant to run the plant. 2016 Generator Transformer: This is the main power transformer employed in the power plant.6kV (230/6. we can't afford losing it.6kV or 400kV/6. To sustain the generation. demineralised cooling water pump etc.    So here enters the unit auxiliary transformer which steps down from 11KV to 3.6kV) and supply the power to the electrical auxiliaries present in the plant (motors. it takes a lot of money. forced draft fan.3KV and supplies to most of the auxiliaries like condensate extraction pump. 5.

These are all vital and take most of the portion of auxiliary power consumption. Further the unit transformers branch into unit service transformers  (not shown in the diagram) which step down 11KV to 415V abs station transformer branches into station service transformers again stepping down to 415V.

The same interconnection between these 415V buses as you can see in the 11KV buses are done and this will provide a firm supply to all the LT(low tension ) switchgears. So to sustain your income you pay a small portion as a salary to that boy. the generator gives a small portion to its auxiliaries which help it in running. Auxiliary cooling water pump.
