ECE 3072 Prana Koirala Lab#3 Transformers Page 1 of 6 Lab 3 – Transformers 111Equation Chapter 1 Section 1 Procedure CAUTION! High voltages are present in this lab. Do not make or modify any connections with the power on. Prior to energizing circuits, the TA should check all connections. Never exceed the rated voltage and/or current on ANY of the transformer windings or load modules for more than a few seconds. Damage to these units can occur. Single Phase Transformer 1. List the voltage and power ratings of windings 1-2 and 4-5 indicated on the front panel of the module. What would the current flowing through each winding be when the transformer is operated at rated voltage and power? What is the theoretic turns ratio of this transformer (N 1 /N 2 )? Voltage Power Current (Power/Voltage) Winding 1-2 208 V 250 W 1.20 A Winding 4-5 120 V 250 W 2.08 A Theoretical Turn Ratio e1/e2 = I 2 /I 1 = 0.577 2. Before energizing the transformer, using the digital multimeter, measure the resistance of windings 1-2 and 4-5. Winding 1-2 R 1-2 = 5.74Ω; Winding 4-5 R 4-5 = 4.50Ω 3. Connect the (0 - 120 V) AC-power supply (line-to-neutral), the transformer module, and the data acquisition interface as depicted in Fig. 4 . Use the Lab-Volt Metering tool to also setup power meters to measure input and output real power, P 1 and P 2 . Make sure that the meters are set to measure AC values. Figure 4. Single-phase transformer wiring diagram for steps 3-6.

Connect a 1200 Ω resistive load across windings 1-2, as shown in Fig. 4 . After verifying all connections, energize the circuit by adjusting the input voltage to 120 V. Record V 1 and I 1 . Using these values determine the resistance seen by the power supply. Compare this result with the resistance obtained by referring the 1200 Ω resistor to the primary using the theoretic turns ratio calculated in step 1. Comment on any differences observed.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
