Equivalent Resistance | Reactance of Transformer

The primary and the secondary winding of an actual transformer have some resistance which is represented by R1 and R2 respectively (shown external to the windings in the figure). The resistances of the two windings can be transferred to any one side. It is done in order to make the calculations easy.
 
The resistance is transferred from one side to the other side in such a manner that percentage voltage drop remains the same on either side.
 

Equivalent Resistance of Transformer Referred to Primary

 
Let
R1 = primary winding resistance
R2 = secondary winding resistance
K = transformation ratio
Then,
Secondary resistance referred to primary R2’ can be calculated by the formula given below.
R2’ = R2/K2
 
The equivalent resistance of transformer referred to the primary is represented by R01.
 
Therefore, R01 = R1 + R2’ = R1 + R2/K2

Equivalent Resistance of Transformer Referred to Secondary

 
The primary resistance referred to the secondary is denoted by R1’ and can be calculated by the formula given below.
 
R1’ = K2R1
 
The equivalent resistance of transformer referred to the secondary is represented by R02.
 
Therefore, R02 = R2 + R1’ = R2+ K2R1

Equivalent Leakage Reactance of Transformer

 
The flux that links with both the windings of the transformer is called mutual flux and the flux which links only with one winding of the transformer is called leakage flux.
 
Due to leakage flux of the primary winding and the secondary winding, an EMF is induced in the respective winding. The primary and secondary voltage will have to overcome these induced EMFs. Thus these induced EMFs are considered as the voltage drops across the factitious reactances placed in the series with the primary and secondary windings. These reactances are called as the leakage reactances and they are shown in the figure.
 
As done in the case of resistances, the reactances can also be transferred to either side. The reactance from one side to other is transferred in such a manner that percentage voltage drop remains the same on the either side.
 

Equivalent Reactance of Transformer Referred to Primary

 
Let
X1 = primary winding reactance
X2 = secondary winding reactance
K = transformation ratio
Then,
Secondary reactance referred to primary X2’ can be calculated by the formula given below.
 
X2’ = X2/K2
 
The equivalent reactance of transformer referred to the primary is represented by X01.
 
Therefore, X01 = X1 + X2’ = X1 + X2/K2

Equivalent Reactance of Transformer Referred to Secondary

 
The primary reactance referred to the secondary is denoted by X1’ and can be calculated by the formula given below.
 
X1’ = K2X1
 
The equivalent reactance of transformer referred to the secondary is represented by X02.
 
Therefore, X02 = X2 + X1’ = X2+ K2X1

Impedance of the Transformer

 
The primary impedance Z1 = R1 + jX1
And secondary impedance Z2 = R2 + jX2
 
The transfer of impedances takes place on the same lines as that of the resistances. The transfer of impedances can take place from primary to secondary and vice versa.
 
Z01 = (R012 + X012)1/2 impedance referred to primary side.
 
Z02 = (R022 + X022)1/2 impedance referred to secondary side.

    A winding machine has included with metal wire, string or paper, onto an inside, spool, or bobbin, which are unmistakable sorts of bowing machines from direct manual manage machines to complex PC numeric control (CNC) machines. Considering, the epic part of the winding machines has turn winding, rope winding, and picked fiber winding. The winding machine has kept up unmistakable relationship, for example, contraption, materials and wire tries. A manual winding machine is having concentrate on a turn and clients physically doled out the wires, ropes and pulling back materials.Transformers
