An electrical substation is an installation with electrical equipment capable of interrupting or establishing electrical circuits and changing the voltage, frequency, or other characteristics of the electrical energy flowing in the circuits. The substation provides interconnection of transmission circuits and transformation between the network of different voltages. The … [Read more...] about Electrical Substation: Equipment, Types, Components & Functions
Transformer bushing types are categorized based on their material, manufacturing, and design mainly into the following types: OIP (Oil-Impregnated Paper) Bushing RIP (Resin Impregnated Paper) Bushing RIS (Resin Impregnated Synthetic) Bushing Resin Bonded Paper (RBP) Bushing Cast Epoxy Bushing You can read about all other types of electrical bushings in … [Read more...] about Transformer Bushing Types : RIP Bushing vs OIP Bushing
Please read Ideal Transformer and Practical Transformer before continuing. Consider a practical transformer on no load i.e., secondary on open-circuit as shown in figure below. The primary will draw a small current I0 to supply (i) the iron losses and (ii) a very small amount of copper loss in the primary. Hence the primary no load current … [Read more...] about Practical Transformer on No Load
Amazed why secondary of current transformer should not be open? If it is left open it may destroy the current transformer. So it is very important that the secondary of Current Transformer should not be kept open. The reason is quite interesting. Either it should be shorted or must be connected in series with a low resistance coil such as current coils of watt meter, coil of … [Read more...] about Why Current Transformer (CT) Seconday Should not be Open ?
Ideal Transformer An ideal transformer is one that has no winding resistance no leakage flux i.e., the same flux links both the windings no iron losses (i.e., eddy current and hysteresis losses) in the core Although an ideal transformer cannot be physically realized, yet its study provides a very powerful tool in the analysis of a practical transformer. In … [Read more...] about Ideal Transformer and Practical Transformer
