EE369 Industrial Automation 3-Wire Edison Distribution Transformer Example Refer to the following diagram and calculate the currents I1, I2, I3 and In. Also determine the total secondary side (load) power. Solution: Vs1 = (208/2) / 4 = 26V Vs2 = (208/2) / 4 = 26V I3 = (Vs1+Vs2) / 10 = 5.2A Using mesh loop with Ia, Ib and Ic assumed in a clockwise direction around each of the three respective loops: Ic = I3 = 5.2A Loop a: 26 = 6 (Ia - Ic) Ia = (26/6) + 5.2 = 9.53A Loop b: 26 = 4 (Ib - Ic) Ib = (26/4) + 5.2 = 11.7A I1 = Ia = 9.53A I2 = Ib = 11.7A I3 = Ic = 5.2A In = Ib – Ia = 2.17A

Power calculations: We find the individual power of each resistor and then we will sum the powers up to find the total power. P = I 2 R = (I1 – I3) 2 R = (9.53 – 5.2) 2 (6) = 112.5 W P = I 2 R = (I2 – I3) 2 R = (11.7 – 5.2) 2 (4) = 169 W P 10Ω = I 2 R = (I3) 2 R = (5.2) 2 (10) = 270.4W P total = P + P

Unformatted text preview: + P 4Ω + P 10Ω = 551.9W NOTE: In this case, all the secondary loads were resistive. If there were reactive loads as well, we would have to find the corresponding reactive powers. This could be done similar to the above process, where we find the individual reactive powers and then sum them up. E.g.: If there was a capacitor in series with the 4Ω resistor, we would use Qc = I 2 Xc, where ‘I’ is the current going through the capacitor, (I2 – I3). Also, if there was an inductor in series with the 10Ω resistor, we would use Q L = I 2 X L , where ‘I’ would be the current going through the inductor, I3. The total reactive power is then simply Qc+Q L . The total power would then be the phasor sum of real and reactive powers, called the apparent power measured in VA: S Total = 2 2 total total Q P +...

### 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.
