For simulation method ,aSIMULINK model of transformer is designedand finally both the method has been compared.Keywords: Transformer losses ,non linear loads,harmonic current, KVA rating ,Eddy currentINTRODUCTIONTransformer is most important electricalmachine of power system and it is interfacesbetween consumer and supplies. With increasingdemand of electrical energy, number of distributiontransformer to be installed is increasing .Efficiencyof transformer is usually 97% to 99% as we allknow but because of increase in total number oftransformer in power system network ,losses hasincreased. Now days use power electronics devicehas increased .Because of use of non linear device,has detoriated and reduced the life of transformer.There are many reason that detoriates theinsulation of transformer. Harmonic also effectoverall performance of a transformer ,which in turnreduces the life of a transformer ,which may alsocalled aging of transformer .The major effects ofharmonic distortion is to increase both load and noload losses. Most important losses due to eddycurrent losses occurring in winding. Increase ofeddy current loss because of harmonics increasesthe temperature of transformer and as mentionedabove reduces life of transformer.In this paper we have used MATLAB software anddesigned a SIMULINK model and calculatedlosses due to linear load by simulation method andfinally we have compared this simulation methodwith our analytical method. Also we havecalculated losses and rated output under harmoniccurrent analytically and has compared withanalytical method used for calculating losses due tolinear load.LOSSES IN TRANSFORMERTwo types of losses occur in transformer (1) noload losses or core losses (2) load lossesTotal loss =no load loss +load lossPTOTALLOSS=PNOLOADLOSS+PLOADLOSS(1)Load losses = copper losses +eddy current losses inwinding+ other stray lossesPLOADLOSSES=PDC+PEDDYCURRENT+POTHERSTRAYLOSSES(2)NO LOAD LOSSES:The No load losses or core losses arises intransformer because of the voltage which isinduced in core. As we know that the number ofdistribution transformer is high in power systemnetwork and they are always in service. So no loadlosses is high but it is merely constant. These lossesoccur because of eddy current and hysteresisphenomenon in the core. Load losses which consistof (a) I2R LOSSES (b) EDDY CURRENTLOSSES (c) OTHER STRAY LOSSES.PDC is calculated by knowing the value ofresistance and square of load currentPDC=I2RIII .EDDY CURRENT LOSSES INWINDINGTwo effect is responsible for eddy current losses inwinding(1) SKIN EFFECT (2) PROXIMITY EFFECTThe eddy current losses occurring inwinding in power frequency spectrum is directlyproportional to f2and I2,where f and I arefrequency and load current. The effect of low orderharmonics on skin effect is usually taken negligiblein windings of transformer.

The core and LV windingcuts the flux density and hence eddy current whichis also called circulating current is produced. Wecall this effect proximity effect. This effect iscaused by magnetic field or current carryingconductors that induce currents in other conductorsin close proximity to the other current carrying ormagnetic fields. Power loss Pec will occur due eddycurrents.Fig 1. Forming eddy current by proximity effectThe proximity effect loss is given byPPE= . (3)where n is number of conductor, d is stranddiameter, and I is maximum current. Gr isproximity factor and by consideringOther stray losses in transformerTotal stray losses=sum of eddy current losses+other stray losses(4)With the help of above equation, we can calculateother stray losses. As we have studied earlier,whenever a conductor is linked byelectromagnetic flux. Because of this a voltage isinduced in the conductor. Hence eddy current isproduced. The losses which takes place instructural parts of transformer for example likeclamps, tanks ,walls of enclosure are known asother stray losses. The other stray losses are thepart of eddy current loss which takes place instructural part of transformer. Many experimentshave been done to determine the effect offrequencies on other stray loss value.At low frequency (0-360) HzROSL=1.29 mΩ (5)At high frequency (420-1200) HzROSL=9.29-.59 (6)Hence POSL is proportional to (i) I2i.e square ofload current (ii) f.8Where f is frequencyHARMONIC EFFECT ON NO LOADLOSSESAs we know by Faraday’s law that the voltage atthe terminal determines the transformer flux levelN =v (t) (7)We transfer the above equation in frequencydomainN j (h )=V h (8)So from above equation it is clear that, themagnitude of flux is directly proportional toharmonic voltage and is inversely proportional toharmonic order h. Also in most power systems, thetotal harmonic distortion THD of the systemvoltage is below 5%. The harmonic component ofvoltage is small if compared to fundamentalcomponent. So by neglecting the effect ofharmonic voltage and hence considering that the noload losses which occured by the fundamentalvoltage component will give rise to an insignificanterror. But in case THDV is not negligible then thelosses which occurs under distorted voltagescalculated with following equation based on ANSI-C.27-1920 standard.P=PM [Ph+Pec( )2]. (9)V h r ms and V r ms are the r ms values of distortedand sinusoidal voltages, PM and P are no-loadLosses under distorted and sinusoidal voltages, PHand PEC are hysteresis and eddy current losses.HARMONIC EFFECT ON NO LOADLOSSES EFFECT OF HARMONICCURRENT ON OHMIC LOSSESThe I2R losses occur due to distortedprimary and secondary current flowing throughprimary and secondary winding of transformer. TheI2R loss occurring in winding of transformer undereffect of harmonic condition is given by.PDC=RDC*I2=RDC*( ) watt (10)EFFECT OF HARMONIC CURRENT ONEDDY CURRENT LOSSES IN WINDINGThe eddy current losses varies by thesquare of I2RMS and f2.where f is frequency and IRMSis rm s value of current.Pec=Pec- (11)FHL= = (12)Ih &I1 is harmonic current and fundamental currentand IR is rated load currentSo, it is important to multiply eddy current lossesoccurring in winding by harmonic loss factor FHL.According to IEEEC57.110 standards, amount ofrated eddy current loss of windings is about 33% oftotal stray loss for oil-filled transformers

These calculation determinesthe transformer equivalent KVA, when it issupplying non linear load. From above calculation,we conclude that losses increase when transformeris supplying non linear load because of harmoniccomponent and hence rated capacity get decreasedunder harmonic current. Also we conclude thatwhenever there is change in harmonic current,there is change in harmonic loss factor anddefinitely change occur in losses and capacity oftransformer. Also we conclude that by simulationmethod, losses are less and hence we conclude thatsimulation method is more accurate than analyticalmethod .So in power system network it is importantto monitor voltage and current, so that to reach theuseful capacity of transformer based on availablestandard and proposed model if harmoniccomponent is existing.REFERENCE[1] IEEE Std C57.110-1998, “IEEERecommended Practice for EstablishingTransformer Capability When SupplyingNon sinusoidal Load Currents”[2] SAFET AYASUN,1 CHIKAO.NWANKPA “Transformer Tests UsingMATLAB/SIMULINK and theirIntegration into Undergratuade ElectricMachnery Courses.IEEETRANSEDU,2005 .[3].
