Easy way to calculate transformer and motor details

Transformer details:

  1. Transformer size
  2. Transformer secondary voltage (v2)
  3. % Impedance (z)
  4. Allowable voltage drop in system

Motor details for one and more motors:

  1. Motor full load current (ILM)
  2. Locked rotor current multiplier (Min)
  3. Locked rotor current multiplier (Max)
  4. Locked rotor current (L1) (Min)
  5. Locked rotor current (L2) (Max)
  6. Motor inrush KVA at starting (IrsM)
  7. How many times motor starts per hour

and Calculations:

  1. Full load current of transformer (ILX)
  2. Short circuit current at transformer secondary (Isc)
  3. Maximum KVA of transformer at Isc (Q1)
  4. Motor inrush KVA At starting (IrsM)
  5. Voltage drop at transformer secondary due to motor inrush (Vd)
  6. Transformer secondary voltage

Results you get:

  • Motor Full Load Current
  • Voltage Drop at Transformer Secondary Due to Motor inRush
  • Transformer Size:(20% Added due to motor starts more than once/Hour)

Calculation formulas used:

  • ILX = KVA / (1.732 x v2)
  • ILM = (Kw x 1000) / (1.732 x Vm x P.F)
  • Isc = ILx / z
  • Q1 = (v2 x ISC x ILM x 1.732) / 1000
  • IrsM = (Vm x L2 x 1.732) / 1000
  • Vd = IrsM / Q1
