B. BASIC THEORY
a. BASIC THEORY OF OPEN CIRCUIT TEST
Parameter of transformer core losses can determine with open circuit test and
short circuit test. For open circuit test is :
1. In no load condition, the current flow is too small. Because of it, the copper
losses and reactance transformer can be ignored. So we just measure the
transformer core losses.
2. In no load condition, the source is used nominal voltage so the output is nominal
transformer core losses.
3. In no load condition, if the primary coil connected with voltage source (V
1
), so I
o

will be flow through the primary coil. From the measuring input power (P
1
),
input current (I
o
), and input voltage (V
1
), we can get :

From measuring in no load test, we can determine Rc and Xm value. The
transformer core losses consist of hysteric losses and eddy current losses and the
transformation number.

b. BASIC THEORY OF SHORT CIRCUIT TEST
- Short Circuit Test
The short circuit test is performed by short circuiting one of the two
windings, by supplying the other one with a voltage adjustable from zero, until
reaching the value of the rated current of the winding itself. In this test, the
whole absorbed power corresponds to the only copper losses of the two
windings, since, the low applied voltage given (in the short circuit test of the
transformer), the magnetizing current, the flux in the core and the consequent
losses are negligible. In these conditions we determine the equivalent resistance
of the transformer.
- Copper Losses
The value of copper losses influenced by :
 The quality of email and enamel of transformer.
 There are terminal which advers in high voltage side and low voltage side
cause a warming and make copper loses increases.
- Measuring Cooper Losses And Impedance
Measuring copper looses have a purpose to know the value of power
losses when trafo work arising out of cooper (W
CU
) and Strey Lose (W
S
) of
transformer.
We can measuring cooper looses by give a nominal current in one of side
and the other side shorted, it will arise nominal current in that side, so that the
transformer “as-if” fully loaded.
In short circuit test we need to know in advance the value of In. Aim to
avoid damage (for security). In can be searched by:

In short circuit test, we get the cooper loss, which I in Short Circuit test is
very large so that R is relatively small.

Explanation :
 Nominal current is the reference of the test
 At the time of practice should not be too long-time because of the warmingof
transformer and if repeated it will cause chaos to the data obtained because of
the losses.
 Short circuit test can also be used to find the transformation rate by

c. BASIC THEORY OF TRANSFORMER POLARITY TEST
By looking at the way the coils wrapped around the transformer can be
determined the direction of the induced voltage is raised and the polarity of the
transformer. When the primary coil which is a high-voltage coils were tegngan,
twisted way as in figure 1 below will generate the induced voltage as indicated by
respective arrows. This means that the terminal T1 (+) have the same polarity to the
terminal R1 (+), while T2 (-) have the same polarity with R2 (-). Polarity in the form
known as the polarity of the reduction. When the polarity of the T1 (+) = R2 (+) and
T2 (-) = R1 (-), meaning how the low voltage coil wrapped around the R1R2
opposite of figure 2, and this relationship is called the polarity of the sum. ( Zuhal,
Teknik Tenaga Listrik)

d. BASIC THEORY OF FULL LOAD TEST
Give the secondary side with load and the primary side with voltage. Because the
secondary side are having load, so the current would be flows through both of
transformer coil.

Figure 5. Load transformer equivalent circuit
From the circuit above, we can conclude that :

From that conclusion, we will know that the primary current is a function from the
load current. Controlling the voltage or we called it regulation is drop voltage at
output side in load condition. The aim of regulation is :
- Controlling the input voltage to be stabled with load
- Controlling the coil to changing the voltage (Tap Changer)
Regulation could be determined by using formula :

In the other side, efficiency is the equivalent between output power and input power
for determine the magnitude of the transformer power and as indicator the
transformer loses.
()

From the open circuit test and short circuit test, transformer equivalent circuit at load
condition who had been transformed to the primary side could be replaced like in the

Figure 7. Load transformers phasor diagram (a) resistive (b)induktive (c) capasitive
Reactive load characteristic will dominantly affect the voltage magnitude at
secondary transformer. Inductive load characteristic will significantly causes drop
voltage at secondary side (V
2
). Capasitive load will make the secondary voltage
higher than the primary voltage.

e. BASIC THEORY OF PARALEL TEST
Sometimes, in load condition needs to paralleling the transformers. The main
purpose of paralleling transformers is to make the load each transformers are
proportional with his power ability, so the overload can be minimized.

Figure 8. The right circuit of parallel transformers

Figure 9. The wrong circuit of parallel transformers
For that circuit, we needs some requirement, such as:
1. The transformers have the same voltage ratio (Look in the nameplate)
If the voltage ratio didn’t same, the induction voltage at secondary coil of
each transformer will be not same. This dissimilarity causes the Eddy’s current
at secondary coil in load condition. This current makes the secondary coil warm
up.
2. The transformers have the same polarity (Look at the transformers terminal or
the result of polarities test)
3. The transformers have the same impedance voltage at full load condition (Look
in the nameplate or in the short circuit test)
From equivalent formula we can conclude :
V

The parallel transformers could be described as :

Because,

Figure 10. Divider current at parallel transformers
From that formula is meaning that the transformers, to makes the
transformers dividing the current as the Volt-Ampere ability, so the impedance
voltage at load condition must be similarity (I
1A
x Z
1A
= I
1B
x Z
1B
). Therefore we
can conclude that both of the transformers are having the same impedance unit.
4. The reactance ratio to resistance should be same as (Short circuit test)
If the R/X ratio is same, both of transformers will be working at the same
work factor.
