Q.3 (a) The efficiency of a transformer is high compared to other electrical machines. Give reasons .

(b) Write short note on no load and short circuit tests.

(c) What do you mean by efficiency of a transformer ? Derive the condition for maximum efficiency.

(d) A 200 kava transformer has an efficiency of 98% at full load. If the maximum efficiency occurs at 75% of lull load, calculate the efficiency at half load. Assume negligible magnetizing current and pf at 0.8 atall load.
