Star Connection in a 3 Phase System

In the Star Connection, the similar ends (either start or finish) of the three windings are connected to a common point called star or neutral point. The three-line conductors run from the remaining three free terminals called line conductors. The wires are carried to the external circuit, giving three-phase, three-wire star connected systems. However, sometimes …

Parallel Operation of a Transformer

The Transformer is said to be in Parallel Operation when its primary winding is connected to a common voltage supply, and the secondary winding is connected to a common load. The connection diagram of the parallel operation of a transformer is shown in the figure below. The parallel operation of a transformer has some advantages likes …

Polyphase System

Polyphase System is a combination of two or more than two voltages having same magnitude and frequency but displaced from each other by an equal electrical angle. As poly means, many (more than one) and phase means windings or circuits. Each of them has a single alternating voltage of the same magnitude and frequency. The …

Parallel Resonance

Parallel Resonance means when the circuit current is in phase with the applied voltage of an AC circuit containing an inductor and a capacitor connected together in parallel. Let us understand the Parallel Resonance with the help of a circuit diagram shown below: Consider an Inductor of L Henry having some resistance of R ohms …
