# Scott 'T' transformer

Transformer consists of 2 single phase transformers connected in a special way. The unit allows to convert 3-phase voltage to two single-phase voltages.

Problem type:
Plane problem of AC magnetics.

Geometry:

Given:
Voltage (RMS) U=36 V,
Frequency f=50 Hz,
Core permeability μ=1000,
Copper conductivity g=56e6 S/m,
Transformer1: N1=168 (with central tap), N2=168,
Transformer2: N1=145, N2=168.

Calculate input currents and output voltages in open circuit mode.

Solution:
The large resistance R=10 kOhm is connected to the secondary winding. It is used to measure output voltage.

Results:

 Winding name Voltage, U Phase current, I A 36√2 @ 0° V 1.95 @ -89° A B 36√2 @ 120° V 1.94 @ 31° A C 36√2 @ 240° V 1.94 @ 150° A p 88 @ 0° V - q 88 @ 90° V -
