Voltage and Turn Ratio Test of Transformer
Transformer Ratio TestThe performance of a transformer largely depends upon perfection of specific turns or voltage ratio of transformer. So transformer ration test is an essential type test of transformer. The voltage should be applied only in the high voltage winding in order to avoid unsafe voltage.
Ratio Test of Transformer and Check of Phase DisplacementActually the no load voltage ratio of transformer is equal to the turn ratio. So ratio test of transformer.
Procedure of Transformer Ratio Test
- First, the tap changer of transformer is kept in the lowest position and LV terminals are kept open.
- Then apply 3-phase 415 V supply on HV terminals. Measure the voltages applied on each phase (Phase-phase) on HV and induced voltages at LV terminals simultaneously.
- After measuring the voltages at HV and LV terminals, the tap changer of transformer should be raised by one position and repeat test.
- Repeat the same for each of the tap position separately.
Let's have a discussion on transformer turns ratio (TTR) meter method of turn ratio test of transformer. A phase voltage is applied to the one of the windings by means of a bridge circuit and the ratio of induced voltage is measured at the bridge. The accuracy of the measuring instrument is < 0.1 %.
This theoretical turn ratio is adjusted on the transformer turn ratio tested or TTR by the adjustable transformer as shown in the figure above and it should be changed until a balance occurs in the percentage error indicator. The reading on this indicator implies the deviaton of measured turn ratio from expected turn ratio in percentage.
