Why transformer rating in kVA not in kW?..

The iron loss in transformer is depend upon voltage and
copper is depend on current. The transformer is not depend
on power faotor. Thus transformer is rated in va and for
big transformer it is KVA & MVA

TRANSFORMER DEPENDS UP ON THE VOLTAGE AND CURRENY

 Is This Answer Correct ? 5 Yes 5 No

Why transformer rating in kVA not in kW?..

Transformer is independent of power factor,it depends on
Voltage and current.

 Is This Answer Correct ? 2 Yes 2 No

Why transformer rating in kVA not in kW?..

Because the load connected on it's side will determine the Kw of it.
Similarly,Generators are rated in VA and motors in KW because motor is itself a load.
