Answer
# 11
As per our Indian standard it is derived from the form
factor I quite agrree to this answer because one question
arise why not 22,44,55,77..... & why 400 KV?

any one who say that it is due to form factor is incorrect ,
no such reason for this question, at starting addison
produce 110 v dc, and that production nature also follow in
ac system.

It is because of the power factor reasons as we have
nornally approximate .90-.91 power factor for transmission
line ..if we calculate for POWER VIcos@ then we will have
exactly a intergral no.

For ex 11000*I*.91=10I Kw
33000*I*.91=30I KW

TO REDUSE THE OVERALL LOSSES,LIKE COPPER LOSS OF
CONDUCTORBECAUSE HIGH VOLTAGE MEANS LESS CURRENT.

due to less current losses will be minimun
and finly get more result

First let us define form factor before we go into the
question:

The form factor of an alternating current waveform (signal)
is the ratio of the RMS (Root Mean Square) value to the
average value (mathematical mean of absolute values of all
points on the waveform). In case of a sinusoidal wave, the
form factor is approximately 1.11.

The reason is some thing historical. In olden days when the
electricity becomes popular, the people had a misconception
that in the transmission line there would be a voltage loss
of around 10%. So in order to get 100 at the load point
they started sending 110 from supply side. This is the
reason. It has nothing to do with form factor (1.11).
Nowadays that thought has changed and we are using 400 V
instead of 440 V, or 230 V instead of 220 V.
Also alternators are now available with terminal voltages
from 10.5 kV to 15.5 kV so generation in multiples of 11
does not arise.

The reason for these "odd" voltage figures dates back
years.The original idea was to make up for the voltage drop
in long transmission line conductors , hence 11KV was
designed to deliver 10 KV at the end of the line , 132 KV
was designed to deliver 130KV at the end of the line and so
on. It has nothing to do with form factor . Also this has
long been abandoned and nowadays the voltage supplied at
the end of the line should be the voltage stated plus or
minus a very small percentage. 400 KV voltage appeared
after this idea was abandoned , hence it is a " round "
figure . Otherwise it might have been 405 or 410 KV !

i think it is not related with form factor as many replied
because if so then why 400 kv or 765 kv is followed as
these r not multiple of 11.i think becuse of constrainst in
gen voltage that is between 10.5 to 15 kv we[earlier]to
choose 11 kv and 33 66 132 kv r multiple of 11 to suite
our transformation ratio.if once follewed it continuied
otherwise i dont find any reason that with 12 kv gen why v
cant have 44 144 kv transmission.

all voltages in rms values.thats y multiple of 11.
10kv means 10kv in rms=10k*form factor=11.1kvapprox=11kv

Dear Sirs, I am a technical persons.In one of our Electrical Sub- Station, We have installed three numbers of 1250KVA ,11KV/0.415KV Transformer to feed the Factory load. We have found some abnormality. In one of our Transformers the leakeage current from transformer body to earth through earth continuity wire is almost 86 Amp but in other transformer it is (5-10)Amp. where the load current on three phase and neutral are respectively 1360Amp,1400Amp,1370 Amp & 176Amp. So please any technical person help me about the reasons of this situation and how I can rectify the fault. Moreover,I have measured the earth resistance of the Earth continuity wire which is less than 1 Ohm. Thanks Tapas Barua   2
