Why the transformers are rated in kva?

Answers were Sorted based on User's Feedback

Why the transformers are rated in kva?..

the losses depends purely on voltage and current . that is
core loss is proportional to voltage and cu loss is
proportional to current, thats why the tr is rated in KVA
not in KW

Why the transformers are rated in kva?..

Transformer is AC Static Inductive M/c where there are no
moving parts.Hence frictional losses are nil.In AC M/cs
power factor i.e.cosine of angle between voltage & current
is important.The relation between KVA & KW is given by
following formula. KVA = KW /P.F. or KW = KVA X P.F. This
angle between Voltage & current decides actual power
available.Transformer being highly inductive m/c power
factor is never = 1.Hence actual KW available is always
less than KVA. Hence X'mers are rated in KVA.

Why the transformers are rated in kva?..

because of there are two type of loses in transformer one is iron loss and second is copper lose.iron lose is proportional to the voltage and copper lose is depends upon current hence transformer losses is measured in KVA.

Why the transformers are rated in kva?..

and yes , one more thing the output of a transformer has no
realtion to the power factor of the load , ie the active and
exceed the max current limit . this will also give you the
answer to why motors are rated in KW , as the power output
of a motor is dependent on only the active power it consumes

Why the transformers are rated in kva?..

in oder machines lik motors also core loss is prop to
voltage n cu loss is prop to current..but dey are rated in
kw nly...y s t so???

Why the transformers are rated in kva?..

current , so , specifying a transformer in KVA with a given
current in both the sides. coupled with the transformer base
impedence , it also gives the regulation and losses at any

 Is This Answer Correct ? 4 Yes 3 No

Why the transformers are rated in kva?..

KW = KVA * PF

According to this formula since power factor depends on
can say that the rating of transformer is in KVA.

 Is This Answer Correct ? 3 Yes 2 No

Why the transformers are rated in kva?..

kva=kw/p.f
as pf never more than unity,so it can be varied with the
angle between voltage and current.so kw alsom may be
varied.as a result tranformer is rated as kva.

How do i perform grounding of star point of Genset (400V) for making connection with step up transformer of DELTA-DELTA (400V to 20KV) ? while Genset itself has its own neutral and grounding bus bar inside genset breaker box whereas we have another neutral and grounding busbar in synchronizing panel next to genset at maximum distance of 6meter, would someone pls advice if we can only perform neutral grounding in synchronizing panel or should we ground neutral on both places inside genset breaker box and synchronizing panel.
