Explanation: First the height of the window is obtained. Then the axial depth is calculated using the formula axial depth = number of secondary turns * width of the conductor and substituting in the above formula provides the window clearance.

9. What is the formula to calculate the radial depth of low voltage windings?

a) radial depth of the lv windings = number of layers * radial depth of the conductors * insulation between layers

b) radial depth of the lv windings = number of layers * radial depth of the conductors – insulation between layers

c) radial depth of the lv windings = number of layers / radial depth of the conductors + insulation between layers

d) radial depth of the lv windings = number of layers * radial depth of the conductors + insulation between layers

View Answer

Explanation: The number of layers is first taken note of. Then the radial depth of the conductors is calculated along with the insulation between layers. On substituting the values in the above formula the radial depth of the low voltage windings is obtained.

10. What is the formula for the inside diameter of the low voltage windings?

a) inside diameter = diameter of the circumscribing circle + pressboard thickness insulation between l.v winding and core

b) inside diameter = diameter of the circumscribing circle – pressboard thickness insulation between l.v winding and core

c) inside diameter = diameter of the circumscribing circle + 2*pressboard thickness insulation between l.v winding and core

d) inside diameter = diameter of the circumscribing circle – 2* pressboard thickness insulation between l.v winding and core

View Answer

Explanation: For calculating the inner diameter, first the diameter of the circumscribing circle is obtained using the corresponding formula. Then the pressboard thickness insulation is calculated.

11. What is the assumption for width of the largest stamping for the stepped core transformer?

a) 0.9*d

b) 0.71*d

c) 0.85*d

d) 0.8*d

View Answer

Explanation: If the width of the largest stamping is not provided, then for stepped core a = 0.9*d. For the cruciform it is a = 0.85*d and for the square core it is a = 0.71*d.

12. What is the range for the current density at HT side for a distribution transformer?

a) 2.4-3.5 Amp per mm^{2}

b) 2-2.5 Amp per mm^{2}

c) 1-3.5 Amp per mm^{2}

d) 2-3.5 Amp per mm^{2}

View Answer

Explanation: 2.4-3.5 Amp per mm

^{2}is the range for the current density at HT side for a power transformer. 2-2.5 Amp per mm

^{2}is the range for the current density at HT side for a distribution transformer.

13. What is the relation of the height of the window with the winding height with respect to the rectangular conductors?

a) winding height = 60% * window height

b) winding height = 50% * window height

c) winding height = 80% * window height

d) winding height = 70% * window height
