A 40 Ω is to be impedance matched by transformer to a source with internal resistance of 4000. If open circuit voltage of source is 60 V. Then the secondary power in watts will be:

1. 0.02
2. 0.075
3. 0.095
4. 0.2

Solution:

For maximum power transformer, half of source voltage is dropped in internal resistance of source.

Voltage across primary = 60/2 = 30

——————————————–

Zp = (N1/N2)^2 * Zs

4000 = (N1/N2)^2 * 40

N1/N2 = 10

———————————————

From Formula Vp/Vs = N1/N2

Vs = Vp/(N1/N2)

Vs = 30/10=3

Secondary power (Ps) = (Vs^2)/R = 3/40 = 0.075

## A low voltage electrical system employs a 300V to 75 step down transformer for safety. The equivalent resistance of electrical system is 15 ohms. Considering the transformer to be ideal and overall system as lossless and power system as 1, what is the power used

A low voltage electrical system employs a 300V to 75 step down transformer for safety. The equivalent resistance of electrical system is 15 ohms. Considering the transformer to be ideal and overall system as lossless and power system as 1, what is the power used.

1. 200 W
2. 375 W
3. 600 W
4. 1285 W

Explanation:

The above numerical can be solved using two methods. Either on parimary side or on secondary.

Method 1:

Secondary current (Is) = Vs/R = 75/15 = 5 A

P = Vs * Is * PF = 75 * 5 * 1 = 375 W

Method 2

Primary current (Ip) = (Vs * Is)/Vp = 1.25 A

P = Vp * Ip * PF = 300 * 1.25 * 1 = 375 W
