c) height = height of window + 2* width of the largest stamping
d) height = height of window – width of the largest stamping
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: First the height of the window is obtained. Then the width of the largest stamping is calculated and substituting in the above formula provides the height of the single phase shell type transformer.

9. What is the formula to calculate the voltage per turn of the transformer?
a) voltage per turn = space factor * square root of output power
b) voltage per turn = space factor / square root of output power
c) voltage per turn = space factor / square root of output power
d) voltage per turn = space factor * 2*square root of output power
View Answer

Answer: a

10. What is the formula for the net cross sectional area of the core of the transformer?
a) cross sectional area = voltage per turn * 4.44 * frequency * magnetic field
b) cross sectional area = voltage per turn / 4.44 * frequency * magnetic field
c) cross sectional area = voltage per turn * 4.44 / frequency * magnetic field
d) cross sectional area = voltage per turn * 4.44 * frequency / magnetic field
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: For obtaining the cross sectional area, the voltage per turn is obtained. The frequency is always 50 Hz. Then the magnetic field is obtained and substituted in the above formula.
