2 ThreePhase Transformers When more power is needed  three transformers can be tied together. This is called threephase. Here s a simple way of comparing singlephase to threephase power. SinglePhase ThreePhase Think of singlephase as one guy driving a stake into the ground; Threephase as three guys, working together, driving the same stake into the ground. 25
3 Generating ThreePhase Threephase power is delivered from a generator with three separate windings. These windings are equally spaced around a rotating cylinder (rotor) with each winding occupying onethird of the rotor circumference. Threephase generator windings are spaced 120 apart for a total of Because the three source voltages timed at three different intervals, they can be transmitted over just three conductors (rather than the six conductors needed to transmit three separate singlephase loads) A threephase system can produce 173% higher effective voltage than a singlephase system. This is very useful for higher power loads such as large motors. 26
4 We calculate the total voltage (of all three lines of a threephase transformer) by multiplying the voltage of each single winding (phase) by the square root of 3 (!3). The reason for this is the angles of each phase are always 120 apart By using this trigonomic formula (don t get scared) we can see where we derive the square root of three. sin = =!3 sin Wye Connection One way of tying three transformers together is in parallel (+ to +) and ( to ). This is called a Wye connection. Here s how a Wye connection is wired: Line Phase eutral 27
5 We call each of the singlephase transformer windings Phases.The combination (hooked together) of the three singlephase transformers ( ) is called the Line. We really only draw threephase from the Line side. Also, Line Amps on a Wye connected transformer equals Phase Amps. It would seem that current would not remain the same in a parallel circuit. But, three transformers wired in parallel are not like three resistors in parallel. Transformers produce, instead of consume voltages, so the opposite rules would would apply in this case. A more simplified representation of a Wye looks like this: A B C If we tie together three singlephase, olt, transformers in a Wye configuration our output voltage would look like this: 208 v 3Ø Why do we get 208 volts, threephase on the Line side ()? Just multiply olts times the square root of 3 (!3). Remember phase angles of three olt sources. olts x (!3) = 208 volts 28
6 We can also get 208 volts, singlephase on the Line side of this transformer by connecting (); "A" 208 v 1Ø "C" "B" As you see, we are connecting only two of the three singlephase transformers available. We still only get 208 volts (120 x!3) from this connection, and it is just singlephase. But, we have the capability of using two transformers ( A & B ) to help share the load. Also, we can use two other possible connections () and () to feed other 208 volt, singlephase loads. Guess what! Yes, it s even possible to get olts, singlephase out of the same transformer. "A" "C" "B" 1Ø Remember, we have the benefit of a neutral conductor and, by connecting () we can feed olt, singlephase loads. And, seeing that we are only using one singlephase transformer ( B ), that leaves two other possibilities ( ) and () for serving other olt circuits. What s also very useful is that we can balance three olt circuits on just one neutral. In other words, A 208/olt (Wye configured) transformer could supply olt, singlephase equipment (like fluorescent lights), 208 volt, singlephase 29
7 equipment (like range or oven), and 208 volt, threephase equipment (like heavy machinery). This is what makes threephase so great! Delta Connections Another way of tying three transformers together is in series (+ to ). This is called a Delta connection. Here s how a Delta connection is wired: Line Phase A more simplified representation of a Delta configuration looks like this: A B C 30
8 By connecting three (240 volt) singlephase transformers (Delta) we get 240 volts, threephase. We don t multiply by!3 because Line volts equals Phase volts on Delta transformers. It would seem that voltage, would not remain the same in a series type circuit. But, three transformers wired in series are not like three resistors in series. Transformers produce, (instead of consume) voltages, so the opposite rules would would apply in this case. 240 v 240 v 240 v 240 v 3Ø Connect () and you ll get 240 volts, singlephase. Connecting () or () will also give us 240 volts, singlephase. otice how three different 240 volt (1Ø) loads utilize three different transformers. 240 v 240 v 240 v 240 v 1Ø We can still get olts, (singlephase) out of a 240 volt Delta system, but it s going to take some additional work. We are going to have to centertap one of the 240 volt, singlephase transformers. It s customary to centertap transformer C... "C" 240 v, 1Ø, 1Ø 31
9 As you can see, we can get olts, (singlephase) from a Delta configuration () (). Unfortunately, all olt loads must be carried on transformer C. Types Of ThreePhase Transformers With the possibility of wiring both the primary and secondary of threephase transformers, there are four possible configurations: (1) Wye/Wye is commonly used for interior wiring systems. (2) Wye/Delta is used to stepdown utilities high line voltages. (3) Delta/Delta is often used for industrial applications. (4) Delta/Wye is popular for stepping down transmission lines to fourwire services when neutrals are needed. The most commonly used threephase transformer is a Delta/Wye configuration. It s used primarily for power distribution from utilities to residential and commercial services. 480 v 3Ø Primary 480 v 480 v 480 v Secondary 208 v 1Ø 208 v 3Ø 1Ø The given voltage designations for a Delta/Wye threephase transformer is: PrimaryLine/SecondaryLine/SecondaryPhase Or in this case: Delta/Wye (480/208/120) 32
10 PhaseToPhase Let s not forget that threephase is a product of three individual singlephase transformers. When calculating the PhaseToPhase relationship the same rules apply as any singlephase transformer. In other words, Our PhaseTo Phase voltage below is 480 to 120 which is a ratio of 4:1. Line Phase Phase Line "A" 480 v "A" "B" 480 v R A T I O "A" eutral "C" 480 v "A" We can also use the the same ladder chart we used for a typical singlephase transformer. Primary Phase Secondary Phase x VA R 480 A 120 T I O x Don t forget that this is just one of three singlephase transformers. There may be efficiency or power factor losses between the primary and secondary phases. But, we ll assume that this transformer is 100% efficient with no power factor loss so the Primary va will equal the Secondary Watts. 33
11 Calculate the Primary va, Primary Amps and Secondary Watts assuming that our Secondary Amps = 100. Primary Phase Secondary Phase x 480 VA R A T I O x Did you get 12,000 Primary va? Multiplying 12,000 by 3 (three transformers) will give us 36 kva (36,000 va). We ll call this our Line kva, which is the sum total of all threephases. In other words, our transformer rating is 36 kva. It s important to understand the difference between Phase and Line. Phase is the singlephase transformer relationship. Line is the result of the combination of all three transformers hooked together. LineToLine There are a few of rules we must remember. (1) Line Watts = Phase Watts x 3 (or) Phase Watts = Line Watts 3 (2) Delta Phase Volts = Delta Line Volts (3) Wye Phase Amps = Wye Line Amps Yes, we can use the ladder LineToLine on threephase transformers Check this out... Primary Secondary! 3 VA 36, ! 3 36, x! 3 x! 3 34
12 For example, knowing the values of Secondary Line Amps (100) and Secondary Line Volts (208) we would multiply going up the ladder to find Secondary Line Watts. In this case, because we are dealing with threephase, we ll multiply our answer by!3 (1.732). Here s what it looks like... Line Amps (100) x Line Volts (208) x!3 (1.732) = Line Watts (36,000) I know! You get 36, watts. The problem is that 208 volts (3Ø) is not exactly 208 volts. olts x = So we round up! Remember, whenever we see 3Ø, the square root of three!3 must be involved. On the Primary side. stepping down the ladder... Primary va (36,000) Primary Volts (480)!3 (1.732) = Primary Amps (43.3) The key to using the ladder in threephase is multiplying the answer by!3 going up the ladder, and divide the answer by!3 going down the ladder. Here s a chart that may be useful.!3 va e i x!3 delta line line volts=phase volts amps phase to phase va e i line phase!3 watts line phase 3 w e i volts line phase!3 wye line w e i line amps=phase amps!3 x!3 On the bottom of this chart are a few helpful tools: For the Delta side Amps... line amps phase amps x!3 For the Wye side Amps... line volts phase volts x!3 For the Watts... line watts phase watts x 3 Just cover the value you need to know. For example: line amps = phase amps x!3 (or) phase amps = line amps/!3 35
13 Here s one for you to try; Primary Secondary! 3 VA ! x! 3 x! 3 Delta/Delta A Delta/Delta connected transformer looks like this... Primary Secondary! 3 VA! 3 x! 3 x! 3 There are the rules we must remember. (1) Line Watts = Phase Watts x 3 (or) Phase Watts = Line Watts 3 (2) Delta Phase Volts = Delta Line Volts PhaseToPhase Although our transformer is connected Delta/Delta the PhaseToPhase situation has not changed. We still have three singlephase transformers. Let s do some calculations for a Delta/Delta 480/240/120 transformer. First we must find the Secondary Watts, then the Primary va and Primary Amps... 36
14 Primary Phase Secondary Phase x 480 VA R A T I O x Then, we can calculate the values for Line...

15 Wye Transformer Balancing We might have forgotten the real purpose of a threephase transformer which is to serve loads. Wye connected 208/olt secondaries can feed loads at three different levels: (1) 208 volts, 3Ø () (2) 208 volts, 1Ø () or () or () (3) olts, 1Ø () or () or () "A" "B" "C" A 208 volt (3Ø) load would be distributed on all three Phases... 1/3 on Phase A 1/3 on Phase B 1/3 on Phase C A 208 volt (1Ø) load would be distributed on two Phases... 1/2 on one Phase 1/2 on one Phase A olt (1Ø) load would be distributed on one Phase % on any one Phase For example, Let s balance the following loads Ø, 208 volt, Motor at 9,000 watts 31Ø, 208 volt, Ovens at 6,000 watts each 31Ø, olt, Light Circuits at 1,800 watts each 38
16 The 208 volt (3Ø) Motor can be distributed on all three Phases... Load Phase A Phase B Phase C Motor (3Ø) 3,000 w (1/3) 3,000 w (1/3) 3,000 w (1/3) The three 208 volt (1Ø) Ovens can be distributed on two Phases each... Load Phase A Phase B Phase C Oven (1Ø) 3,000 w (1/2) 3,000 w (1/2)  Oven (1Ø) 3,000 w (1/2) 3,000 w (1/2) Oven (1Ø) 3,000 w (1/2) 3,000 w (1/2) The three olt (1Ø) Light Circuits can be distributed on one Phases each... Load Phase A Phase B Phase C Light Ckt (1Ø) 1,800 w (100%)   Light Ckt (1Ø)  1,800 w (100%)  Light Ckt (1Ø)   1,800 w (100%) Totals 10,800 w 10,800 w 10,800 w So, our total demand is 32,400 watts (10,800 x 3). We re lucky, our loads balanced evenly, otherwise, we would have to multiply our largest Phase by three. Looks like we need a 45 kva (standard size) Wye/Wye or Delta/Wye connected transformer. Delta Transformer Balancing What if we had a Delta connected (240/) secondary Delta connected 240/olt secondaries can also feed loads at three different levels: (1) 240 volts, 3Ø () (2) 240 volts, 1Ø () or () or () (3) olts, 1Ø () or () A 240 volt (3Ø) load would be distributed on all three Phases... 1/3 on Phase A 1/3 on Phase B 1/3 on Phase C A 240 volt (1Ø) load would be distributed 100% on one Phase only... 39
17 100% on Phase A 100% on Phase B 100% on Phase C A olt (1Ø) load would be distributed on Phase C only % on Phase C only Let s balance the same loads on a Delta Ø, 208 volt, Motor at 9,000 watts 31Ø, 208 volt, Ovens at 6,000 watts each 31Ø, olt, Light Circuits at 1,800 watts each The 240 volt (3Ø) Motor can be distributed on all three Phases... Load Phase A Phase B Phase C Motor (3Ø) 3,000 w (1/3) 3,000 w (1/3) 3,000 w (1/3) The three 240 volt (1Ø) Ovens can be distributed on one Phase each... Load Phase A Phase B Phase C Oven (1Ø) 6,000 w (100%)   Oven (1Ø)  6,000 w (100%)  Oven (1Ø)   6,000 w (100%) The three olt (1Ø) Light Circuits can be distributed on Phase C only... Load Phase A Phase B Phase C Light Ckt (1Ø)   1,800 w (100%) Light Ckt (1Ø)   1,800 w (100%) Light Ckt (1Ø)   1,800 w (100%) Totals 9,000 w 9,000 w 14,400 w Poor old Phase C has to carry 1/3 of all threephase loads, 100% of any 240 volt (1Ø) loads that distributed on it, and 100% of all olt loads. Our total demand is 43,200 watts (14,400 x 3). This time we re not so lucky, our loads did not balanced evenly. But, we can still use a 45 kva (standard size) Wye/Delta or Delta/Delta connected transformer. 40
18 Open Delta One benefit of a Delta threephase configuration is that it can still work with just two singlephase transformers. An OpenDelta or Vconnected transformer can be used in a emergency or temporary situation.the only problem is that there is a power reduction to just 57.7% of full power. Primary Secondary A third singlephase transformer can be added later if needed. Or, if one original transformer should fail, it can be removed temporarily for repair. In this situation, partial service can be maintained temporarily. ThreePhase Transformer Sample Problem Problem: Calculate the threephase 480/208/olt transformer required to feed the following loads: one 10 hp, 208 volt, 3Ø Motor (11,096 w) three 3 kw, 208 volt, 1Ø Heaters three 1 kw, olt, 1Ø Light Banks Solution: Loads Balanced: Phase A Phase B Phase C 3Ø Motor (1/3 per phase) 3,699 w 3,699 w 3,699 w 1Ø Heaters (1/2 per phase) 1,500 w 1,500 w   1,500 w 1,500 w 1,500 w  1,500 w 1Ø Light Banks (100% per phase) 1,000 w ,000 w w 7,699 w 7,699 w 7,699 w 41
