Transformer Losses and Efficiency

Types of losses incurred in a transformer: 1. Copper losses 2. Core losses (hysteresis losses and eddy current losses)

Transformer Losses and Efficiency


Types of losses incurred in a transformer:

1.     Copper I2R losses

 

2.     Core losses (hysteresis losses and eddy current losses) Transformer efficiency may be calculated using the following:


Ideal transformer will have maximum efficiency at a load such that copper losses = iron losses
