Description

The Three-Phase Transformer 12 Terminals block implements three single-phase, two-winding linear transformers where all the twelve winding connectors are accessible. The block can be used in place of the Three-Phase Transformer (Two Windings) block to implement a three-phase transformer when primary and secondary are not necessarily connected in Y or Delta.

Dialog Box and Parameters

[Three-phase rated power Frequency]

The total nominal power of the three phases, in volt-amperes (VA), and the nominal frequency, in hertz (Hz).

Winding 1: [phase voltage R X]

The nominal voltage of the three primary windings (labeled 1) in volts RMS (Vrms), the winding resistances, in pu, and the winding leakage reactances, in pu.

Winding 2: [phase voltage R X]

The nominal voltage of the three secondary windings (labeled 2) in volts RMS (Vrms), the winding resistances, in pu, and the winding leakage reactances, in pu.

Magnetizing branch: [Rm Xm]

The resistance and reactance simulating the core active and reactive losses, both in pu. For example, to specify 0.2% of active and reactive core losses, at nominal voltage, use Rm = 500 pu and Lm = 500 pu. Lm can be set to inf (no reactive core losses), but Rm must have a finite value.

Example

See power_3phPWMpower_3phPWM for an example of use of the Three-Phase Transformer 12 Terminals block in a three-phase double-bridge voltage-sourced converter.
