AIM OF THE EXPERIMENT:
To MeasureThree Phase Power By 2 Watt Meter Method. And calculate the percentage error.
APPARATUS REQUIRED:
THEORY:
A watt meter is an instrument for measuring power directly in a circuit. It has two coils
which when connected in series give the lower current range of the instrument and when
connected in parallel gives the double the range. The pressure circuit has a coil of high resistant.
The current coil is connected in series with the circuit in which power is measured and pressure
coil across the circuit. Two wattmeter’scan be used to measure power in a three phase 3-wire
circuit, by making the connections as shown in below. The load may be balanced or unbalanced.
The current coils are connected in series with two phases and the pressure coils between either
phase and the third. If one of the wattmeters tends to read negative, the current coil is reversed,
but reading of this instrument must be regarded as negative the total power consumed=
w1+w2(alzebric sum).
Here current through the current coil W1=IR and W2=IB
While potential difference across voltage coil of W1=VRY and W2=VBY
According to the phasor diagram given below
W1=VRYIRcos(30+ ) and W2=VBYIB cos(30- )
Here total power drawn by 3 phase load is W1+W2=VRYIRcos(30+ ) + VBYIB cos(30- )
Here VRY=VBY=VL
Then W1+W2= 3 VL I cos (after solving) which is 3 phase power
And W2-W1=VLI sin
Now tan =

THEORY:
The circuit to be used for measurement of power in an A.C. circuit using three
ammeter is shown in fig 1. We know in a D.C. circuit the power is given by the product of
voltage and current, whereas ,in A.C. circuit it is given by the product of voltage, current and
power factor. For this reason, it is not possible to find power in an A.C. circuit simply from the
readings of a voltmeter and ammeter. In A.C. circuits power is normally measured by wattmeter.
However, this method demonstrates that the power in a single –phase A.C. circuits can be
measured by using three ammeters and 3 voltmeter method.
3 AMMETER METHOD:
FIG-1 is used for measurement of power by 3 ammeter method here from the
circuit it concludes that I1 is the summation of I2& I3vectorically. Here in this circuit a fixed
resister is used which value is known and I2 is the current in that path. And I3 is the current
flowing through load.
So the phasor diagram of above circuit will be as shown below

PROCEDURE:
RUN-1 : Measurement of power by three-ammeter method:
1. Connect as per the circuit diagram fig-1.
2. Give supply voltage 60V for measurement. If this voltage will more than 60V then the

3. Vary the load impendence insteps and note down the reading of the meter in each case. Here
in each case I2 and V is constant in all over the experiment.
RUN-2: measurement of power by three-voltmeter method:
1. Connect as per the circuit diagram(fig-2)
2. Give supply voltage 120V for measurement. If this voltage will more than 120V then the
inductor will make sound.
3. Vary the load impendence (i.e inductor) in steps and note down the reading of the meters in
each case.Here V1 is constant in all over the experiment.

4 1 energy meter 1500 RPK 1
5 Voltmeter 0-600V(MI) 1
6 Tipple Pole Iron Clad Switch 1
THEORY:
1. ENERGY METER: it is used to calculate energy (kilo watt hour) at each instant of time
so this type of instrument is indicating type instrument.
2. WHY TESTING: In all supply meters a meter constant is made in them. This
constant is expressed in revolutions per kilowatt hour (RPK) usually. Full load current
and line voltage for which the meter is intended, are also stated. From these data the
number of revolutions per minute which the meter should make, when tested with a
certain fraction of its full load can be calculated. The number of revoltions per minute
which it actually does make when tested at this load is then observed and the error is
calculated.
3. TESTING OF 1 ENERGY METER: for testing of 1∅ energy meter in
different power factor is done by help of two phase that is 2400
displaced. Here R phase
and B phase are 2400
displaced. In the arrangement given in circuit diagram pressure coil
of energy meter is always taking voltage from R phase only and current coil of energy
meter has the provision for taking current from R phase and B phase simultaneously or
individually.
When VRN =0 and VBN has some voltage then current coil of energy meter will
take current from B phase. So power factor angle=600
as shown below phasor
diagram.
And Power factor=cos600
=0.5
13.
13 | P a g e
When VBN has equal voltage withVRN then current coil of energy meter will take current
from B phase and R phase equally. So power factor angle=300
as shown below phasor
diagram. Power factor=cos300
=0.866
When VBN =0 and VRN has some voltage then current coil of energy meter will take current
from R phase. So power factor angle=00
as shown below phasor diagram. And Power
factor=cos00
=1

AIM OF THE EXPERIMENT:
To perform the open circuit and short circuit test on a single phase transformer and to
draw the equivalent circuit after determining its constants.
APPARATUS REQUIRED:
SLNO NAME OF THE EXPERIMENT RANGE AND TYPE QUANTITY
1 Single phase transformer 3KVA,230/230V,50 HZ 1
2 Wattmeter 2.5/5A LPF 1
3 Wattmeter 10/20A UPF 1

6 Voltmeter 0-300V 1
7 Voltmeter 0-30/75V 1
8 1 variac 0-300V,15A 1
THEORY:
The performance of a transformer can be calculated on the basis of its equivalent circuit
which contains four main parameters, the equivalent resistance R01 as referred to primary( or
secondary R02), the equivalent leakage reactance X01 as referred to primary, the core-loss
conductance G0 and the magnetizing susceptance B0. These constants or parameters can be easily
determined by two test i.e. Open circuit test and short circuit test. These are very economical and
convenient, because they furnish the required information without actually loading the
transformer. In fact, the testing of very large a.c machinery consists of running two test similar
to the open and short circuit test of a transformer.
The purpose of this test is to determine no load loss or core loss and no load I0 which is
helpful in finding X0 and R0. One winding of the transformer whichever is convenient but
usually high voltage winding is left open and the other is connected to its supply of normal
voltage and frequency. A wattmeter(W), Voltmeter (V) and ammeter (A) are connected in the
low voltage winding i.e. primary winding in the present case. With normal voltage applied to the
primary, normal flux will be setup in the core, hence normal iron losses will occur which are
recorded by the wattmeter. As the primary no load current I0 is small, Cu loss is negligibly small
in primary and nill in secondary. Hence, the wattmeter reading represents practically the core
loss under no load condition.
For short circuit test, one winding usually the low voltage winding, is solidly short-
circuited by a thick conductor ( or through an ammeter which may serve the additional purpose
of indicating rated load current).
A low voltage ( usually 5 to 10% of normal primary voltage) at correct frequency (though for Cu
losses it is not essential) is applied to the primary and is cautiously increased ill full- load current
are flowing both in primary and secondary( as indicated by the respective ammeters).
Since, in this test, the applied voltage is a small percentage of the normal voltage, the mutual flux
ø produced is also a small percentage of its normal value. Hence, core losses are very small with
the result that the wattmeter reading represents the full load Cu loss or i2 R loss for the whole
transformer i.e. both primary Cu loss and secondary Cu loss. The equivalent circuit of the

currents, then Z01= Vsc/I1
a two winding transformer can be represented by means of an equivalent circuit as shown

Precautions:
1. Don’t switch on power supply without concerning respected teachers.
2. Auto transformer must be kept at minimum potential point. Before switch on the
experiment.

23 | P a g e
OPEN CIRCUIT TEST PROCEDURE:
1. Connect circuit as shown in the circuit diagram.open circuit the secondary and apply full
load voltage to the primary through a variac. The cupper loss is negligible since there is
only no load current is flowing.hence power consumed are the core losses of the core.
2. Note voltmeter and ammeter and wattmeter reading.

SHORT CIRCUIT TEST PROCEDURE:
1. Connect as shown in the circuit diagram. Short circuit the secondary and apply a low
voltage to the primary through a auto transformer. The iron losses are negligible
since the flux will be very low on account of the primary and secondary.
2. Increase the voltage gradually till full load current flows in the primary. Note
voltmeter and ammeter and wattmeter reading.

CIRCUIT DIAGRAM:
THEORY:
When the secondary winding of a transformer is completed through a load and a voltage
Vis applied to the primary winding. The transformer is said to be operate under load condition.
Under this condition transformer cupper loss increases with increase in current .due to that
efficiency changes. At half load efficiencies reaches to maximum it gradually decreases when
further load increases. This is because at half load cu loss is less and iron loss is also less but
below half load iron loss will more this result efficiency is less.This situation happens when
transformer is distribution transformer.When load increases beyond half load cupper loss will
increase which again reduces the efficiency.

Vefification of thevnine theorem RL+ Rin
THEORY OF THEVENIN THEOREM:
In a passive ,linear,bilateralnetwork,the current in any element is given by the ratio of
the open circuit voltage(obtained by open circuiting the element under consideration) to the
sum of the resistance of the element and internal resistant,where the internal resistant is
obtained by looking across to terminals of the element with the element removed and with all
sources assumed to be dead.
Then IL=Voc
Where IL is the current in the element RL
Voc=open circuit voltage across the element RL with RL removed.
Rin=internal resistant across the terminal to which RL is connected with (RL removed and all
sources made dead). This is thevenine’s theorem. In this experiment, we find out the current in
a resistor element RL in the following network, using thevenine’s theorem.

Theory:
Magnetization curve is also called the open circuit characteristics (o.c.c) .It is the plot
between no load or open circuit armature terminal voltage (the induce e.m.f) versus the field
current at a constant speed. Hence the name o.c.c.It is also called magnetization characteristic
because the induce emf α flux and flux density and the field current is α H and hence the curve
is a B-H curve.
PRECAUTION:
1. Do not switch on the power supply without concerning respected teacher.
2. Do not make rheostat position of armature to minimum and field rheostat position to
maximum at the time of starting.

PROCEDURE:
Make connection as shown in the diagram. Run the motor and bring it up to rated speed.
With zero excitation in the field circuit, take the voltmeter reading. This represents the residual
magnetism. Increase the excitation slowly and take reading of ammeter and voltmeter after
adjusting the speed constant. While making the field current adjustments do not retrace.
Continue till the induce voltage is more than the rated value.
2. Reduce the excitation and take reading of ammeter and voltmeter at constant speed –Do not
retrace while reducing excitation.
Run II: - Keep the excitation of the generator constant at a partial value and vary the
speed.
Observations:-
Run I: - Speed constant
SL NO. If increasing V If decreasing V
Run II:- Excitation constant
SL NO. N V
GRAPHS:
1. Plot the curves of induced voltage versus field current for increasing and decreasing
excitation.
2. Plot the curve of induce voltage vs. speed taking care to choose the scale such as point (0,
0) is included in the graph paper.
DISCUSSION QUESTION:
1. The shape of the open circuit characteristic curve? What do you mean by saturation?
2. Can you obtain the o.c.c from the experimentally determined o.c.c for a different speed? If so, plot
the o.c.c for a speed which is half the value at which you performed the experiment.
3. Why does the induced voltage Vs speed curve pass through (0, 0) but not the induce voltage Vs
excitation curve?
4. Explain the effect of variation of the field resistance.
5. Discuss effect of variation of speed on build up voltage.
6. List the condition to be satisfied for voltage build up of a DC generator.

Theory:
If V is the applied voltage across the motor terminals, Ebis the back emfdeveloped,then V
= Eb+ IaRa. Where Iaand Ra the current and resistance in the armature circuit respectively.
But, Eb= = K .Hence V =K + IaRa .i.e. N = K ᶦ
This shows that:-
i. An increase in the IaRadrop will decrease the value of speed if V remains constant.
ii. Speed varies inversely as the field flux and hence varies inversely as the exciting current, if
below saturation. Thus, by increasing the resistance in the armature circuit, a motor can be
operated at speed below normal. By increasing the resistance in the field circuit, a motor can be
operated at speeds above normal.

Procedure:-
CASE A:
Speed control by variation of armature circuit resistance.
i. Connect as shown. Make R and Rf zero at the time of starting the motor (which is run on no
load) with the motor starter.
ii. The motor is on load. Adjust Rf and bring the motor to the rated speed. Note the terminal
voltage, V and normal excitation which correspond to the rated speed of motor. Keep Ifconstant
throughout, During starting, ammeter A2 may be by passed.
iii. With the exciting current kept constant, increase R in steps, at each step note the value of V
and the speed in r.p.m.
CASE B: -
Speed control by variation of field circuit resistance.
i. Run the motor as before and bring it to the rated speed at no load.
ii.Cut out the field regulating resistance, Rfin steps and note the speed and the field current ,If in
each case . Keep the voltage across the armature constant. Take reading for decreasing values of
speed by increasing field current.
iii. Take reading for increasing values of speed corresponding to same values of If as in 2.
iv. Measure Ra after test.
Observations:-

Graphs:
Case A:- plot a graph between speed along y-axis and volts across arm. Along x-axis.
CaseB: - Plot a graph between speed along y –axis and exciting current If along x-axis.
Discussion question:
1.compare the two methods and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each method.
2. If, by chance, there be a loose contacts in the field circuits rheostat what will be the
consequences .What precautions do you take to avoid these consequences.
3. Discuss the graph you obtained.
