Question
`why HT voltage rating in multiple of 11`
Question Submitted By :: Electrical-Engineering
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By

# 1
form factor of alternating current is 1.1, which is the
ratio of rms value to average value of alternating current.
so generation of ac is in multiple of11, like
11kv,22kv,33kv,44kv etc

 Is This Answer Correct ? 129 Yes 18 No

# 2
The value of form factor is 1.1 which is calculated for the
sine wave. At this value of form factor, leakage flux is
minimum and efficiency is maximum for any electrical
machines. These machines are operated at sine waves.

 Is This Answer Correct ? 27 Yes 9 No

# 3
because the form factor=rms value/average value.so, for
factor is 1.1 .so the rating is always multiple of 11

 Is This Answer Correct ? 18 Yes 9 No
Saran.then

# 4
we know that the form factor is the ratio r m s value
to average value which result is 1.1 so ht voltage
rating is multiply of 11.

At the time of generation there are many type of losses
therefore earlier use to write 10(+/- 1%)kv so thats why we
generally use to write it as 11kv.Since our ancestral make it
a standard of 11kv,33kv,66kv and as the year pass,many
engineers added a new myth of form factor,10% loss of actual
power.....and thus it make us to suffer a lot.
Since there is 230kv and still like 765kv which are not
multiple of 11.
and production in 11kv and 33kv is more ecnomical

 Is This Answer Correct ? 3 Yes 2 No

# 6
Production of power in 10KV is more economical than 11kv dear REMO

# 7
if 1.11 form factor is reason thnt what about 230v
400v ..............

 Is This Answer Correct ? 0 Yes 0 No

# 8
its not a joke.FF is the exact answer for 11 multiples but
we can also get different voltages by tappings in the
transformer secondary.

 Is This Answer Correct ? 9 Yes 16 No

# 9
it seems that it is due to form factor but Actually it is
not due to form factor,if there is necessarily multiple of
11 then how can we get 400,127 or etc etc....

i think by changing factors and certain conditions it is
possible to minor change in form factor then how we are
getting same form factor since the production of
electricity....

it is just a misconception of introduction of form factor....

 Is This Answer Correct ? 3 Yes 19 No

# 10
because naveen kumar's luckey number is 11,that's way HT
voltage is multiple by 11.there is no role in ff(=RMS
value/avg value)1.1

 Is This Answer Correct ? 2 Yes 21 No
