To: Dr. Jeffrey D. Johnson Chief, Electronics Division From: Jonathan Brate Electronics Division Subject: Parallel Transformers to Increase High Voltage Power Date: 12/1/2010 Introduction: This technical memorandum was written to discuss the possible upsides and downsides of running multiple transformers in parallel to increase the high voltage output of an electrical system. For the purpose of this paper, I shall expand upon the specifics of how it all works. Transformer paralleling is generally used for justifiable reasons. Some examples include, power distribution expansion or rebuilt with some expansion, significant savings on using smaller standard transformers off-the-shelf, specialty applications, and to obtain high currents. Figure 1 is a good depiction of what running transformers in parallel looks like and how it works. Problem Statement: Basically, when transformers are in parallel they combine their voltage outputs across a series of
