in star connection
line voltage is=(3)^(1/2)*phasevoltage
line current is=phase current
in delta connection
line voltage is =phase voltage
line current is =(3)^(1/2)*phase current

power ratio=( ((3)^(1/2)*phasevoltage*phase current)/((((3)^
(1/2)*phasevoltage*phase current))
so power ratio is =1.

Power ratio between star and delta is 1:1
because power in star=line voltage(3^1/2*Vph)*line current
(Iph)=3^1/2VphIph
power in delta =line voltage(Vph)*line current(3^1/2*Iph)
=3^1/2VphIph

IIly in star connected vphase=Vline/rt3,
Iline=Iphase
ie Power = rt3 vpahseIphaseCos
ie. in both star and delta power remain same
therefore the Power ratio = 1.

i think transformer just step up or step down voltage or
current only but power remains same(constant).so ratio of
p1 to p2 is 1 when same transformer connected in star or
delta.

The power transformation ratio in the transformer is
1:1.Only the voltage and currents are subjected to
change.Pri MVA=Secondary MVA. Except to compensate for some
losses.

If placing 3 resistors in Delta rather than Star will end
up with 3 times more heating power. This is because you
have sq root of 3 times more voltage across each resistor
in Delta and hence end up with the sq root of 3 times more
current through each resistor. The sq root of 3 of more
voltage times the sq root of 3 of more current than, star
connected resistors means 3 times more power. Capacitor
are often connected in Delta for power factor correction as
this offers 3 times more reactive power than in Star
connection, though be aware they need to be able to cope
with line voltage across each Cap in Delta.

Now assume any type of load; for simplicity assume it a
only resistive load.

And let it be ?R? per phase.

For Delta connected load:

Calculation for per phase power; PD= I2R

Where I ? load current (per phase)

And,

I = ?3Vs/R {as line voltage of the supply is directly
applied to the phase of the delta load}

So,

Pd = (?3Vs/R )2R = 3Vs2/R watts per phase.

For 3 phases:

P3D = 3Pd = 3*3Vs2/R = 9Vs2/R watts.

Now for Star connected load:

PS = I2R = (Vs/R)2R = Vs2/R watts

For 3 phases: P3S = 3PS = 3 Vs2/R watts

Conclusion:

P3S / P3D = 3Vs2/R / 9Vs2/R = 1/.

In Transformer testing at Shop test we normally test for
vector group, open ckt.,short ckt. but what are the other
test performed for transformer once it reaches at site.For
e.g:if the transformer is dry having rating 1000KVA?

draw waveform of capacitor or inductor in a d.c ckt(during
transient) with zero resistance with it(in series or
parallel)also neglect resistance of wire

what will happen if instead of neutral we use earth wire as
return conductor?if we can use ,then why we are not using in
our day to day appliances?please justify the answer

Why electrical engineer use Cu Strip for transformer
neutral why not GI Strip? What if we use GI instead of Cu
does it affects the transformer performance.

I have a shop heater with a 1/3 hp capacitor start,
induction motor driving the fan. Intermittently, the fan
motor speeds up significantly for several seconds (15-60
sec) then slows to normal operating speed. The manufacturer
suggested changing the capacitor which made no sense, but I
did it to no avail.
Could this possibly be caused by the centrifugal switch
intermittently reconnecting the start winding?
