Ql (a) Define regulation of a transformer and derive an approximate expression for it in terms of equivalent
circuit parameters when the transformer delivers current at lag,cring power factor (cos(}) load. [6}
(b) A 350 k VA, 240 V /4800 V, 50 Hz single phase transformer gave the following test results.

parallel with the loads so that" the current drawn from the source will be at unity power factor? 
(b) For the magnetic circuit shown in Figure 1, (i) estimate the excitation current necessary in a 200 turn
