3
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections The low voltage winding of a standard distribution transformer connected to a single-phase circuit is normally made with two equal coils. These sections are arranged so that they may be connected in series or parallel.

4
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections Transformer polarity may be subtractive or additive.

5
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections The polarity of a transformer may be determined using a known transformer or with AC voltage.

6
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections A delta connection has the wires from the ends of each coil connected end-to-end to form a closed loop.

7
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections Studying the current in a delta-connected system at both 0° and 90° illustrates the current flow in a delta- connected system.

8
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections A wye connection has one end of each coil connected together and the other end of each coil left open for external connections.

9
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections Studying the current in a wye-connected system at both 0° and 90° illustrates the current flow in a wye- connected system.

10
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections A 3-phase delta-to- wye connection is often used for distribution where a four-wire secondary distribution circuit is required.

11
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections Three single-phase transformers may be connected in a wye-to-wye connection to form a 3-phase transformer.

12
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections A wye-to-delta connection permits single-phase and 3- phase loads to be drawn simultaneously from the delta- connected secondary at the same voltage.

13
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections In a wye-to-delta connection of three single- phase transformers, one unit may be disconnected from the circuit and service maintained with the secondary operating in open delta connection at 57.7% of normal bank capacity.

14
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections In a delta-to-delta connection, the voltage of each transformer is equal to the 3-phase line voltage and the current in each of the transformers is only 57.7% of the line current.

15
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections Grounding one of the midpoints of the windings provides 240 V/120 V, single-phase, 3-wire service for lighting applications.

16
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections An open delta connection makes 3-phase power available anywhere along the distribution line with the use of only two transformers rather than the usual three.

17
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections A delta connection with a high leg to ground provides 240 V, 3-phase power to equipment and 120 V power for lighting and receptacles.

18
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections The phase sequence on the secondary of a three-phase transformer is the same as the phase sequence on the primary.

19
Chapter 4 Transformer Connections Transformers are classified into connection groups according to their phase shift.
