Evaluation of 3 Phase Dry Transformer under Non-Sinusoidal Load Currents and Unbalanced Voltage Supply

  title={Evaluation of 3 Phase Dry Transformer under Non-Sinusoidal Load Currents and Unbalanced Voltage Supply},
  author={Seyed Reza Karimpour-Mouziraji and Iman Ahmadi},
Unbalanced voltages can result in adverse effects on equipment, which is intensified by the fact that a small unbalance in the phase voltages can cause a disproportionately larger unbalance in the phase currents. In this paper a 15 kVA 3-phase dry transformer has been analyzed using theoretical modeling. Specifically, modeling the transformer under nonlinear and linear loads under un-balanced supply voltage in 3D has been investigated. Transformer loss under linear loads is compared with non…

Effects of DC Bias on Regional Flux and Magnetostriction of a Single-Phase Transformer Core Modeled by 3-D MACC
Traditionally, flux distributions in transformer cores are modeled as a 2-D problem. However, experimental studies indicate that 3-D models are needed. The main reason is that limbs of circular cross
Interlaminar Magnetic Flux Assessment of a Transformer Core Measured by an Extra-Thin Printed Foil Detector
The results prove the important role of sensor thickness for precise detection of off-plane induction and develop an extra-thin reusable foil detector with handles for easy and precise insertion and positioning in the interior of a laminated core.
