With the help of Scott connection, proposed by C.F. Scott, it is possible to obtain 2phase supply which is required for furnaces or even three phase load can be driven from the available 2phase supply source. The Scott connection which is serving this purpose is shown in the Fig.1.

Fig. 1 |

This connection uses tow transformers with different rating. But identical transformers with suitable tapping may also be used for the interchangeability and provision of spares. One of the transformers having 50% taping is called main transformer and other one having 86.6% tapping is called teaser transformer. If the secondaries of the tow transformers are connected as shown in the Fig. 1 then tow phase, three wire system is obtained.

One end of the primary winding of the teaser transformer is connected to the centre tapping provided on the primary winding of the main transformer.The tow ends of the primary winding of the main transformer and 86.6 tapping point on the teaser transformer is connected to a balanced three phase supply. The voltage per turn is same both in primary of both main and teaser transformer. With the equal number of turns on secondaries of both the transformers, the secondary voltage will be equal in magnitude which results in symmetrical 2phase system.

The main transformer primary winding consists of N

_{1}_{ }turns connected between lines Y and B of a symmetrical three phase supply. V_{RY, }V_{YB}and V_{BR }are all line voltages. Hence VRY= V_{YB}= V_{BR }= V_{L }. But RO being the altitude of the equilateral triangle, the voltage V_{RO}is (√3/2)V_{L}. The voltage per turn will be same in primaries of both the transformers if number of turns between R and O are (√3/2)N_{1}. With this then the terminal voltages on the secondary windings having same turns will be equal in magnitude and have a same difference of between them. The point O is not the neutral point of 3 phase supply voltage as its voltage with respect to any line is not V

_{L}/√3. N is the neutral point shown in Fig. 3. Voltage V_{RN}is nothing but V_{L}/√3 whereas V_{RO}is (√3/2)V_{L}. Hence the voltage between N and O will be_{L}- (1/√3)V

_{L}= 0.288 V

_{L }

__~__0.29V

_{L}

Since 0.29 is one third of 0.866, N divides the teaser winding RO in the ratio 2 :1.

Now let us consider the unity power factor load. The teaser secondary is supplying a current of I

The main transformer primary winding forms a return path for the teaser primary current which is divided into tow halves at point O in either direction.

The current in each half is equal to (I

_{Y }= I_{B }= √**(**( I_{1M })^{2}+ (0.5 I_{1T })^{2}**)** The currents in the lines Y and B are obtained vectorially. The teaser transformer currents flowing in the tow halves of the primary winding of the main transformer in the opposite direction and have no magnetic effect on the core and does not take part in balancing the secondary ampere turns of the main transformer. Thus when tow phase load of unity power factor is balanced then three phase side is also balanced.

Now let us consider balanced row phase load at a lagging p.f. of cosΦ. The corresponding phasor diagram is shown in the Fig. 4. The three phase side is again balanced as the currents drawn from the three phase system are equal balanced and lag by angle Φ with respect to their respective phase voltages. This can be shown mathematically.

Let us consider the equal currents at a power factor of cos Φ lagging from secondary side

From the phasor diagram we have

_{1M}= K I_{2M}= K I_{2} I

_{1T}= 1.16 K I_{2T}= 1.16 K I_{2}Substituting I

I

_{R}= 1.16 K I_{2}I

_{Y}= I_{B}= √**(**(K I_{2})^{2}+(0.5 x1.16 I_{2})^{2}**)** = 1.16 K I

_{2} Thus all the currents in the primary side are equal in magnitude.

We have from the phasor diagram

Primary voltage = 415 V

Secondary voltage = 225 V

Transformation ratio, K = Secondary voltage / Primary voltage = 225/415 = 0.5421

Turns ratio = N

Secondary current = (150 x 10

Primary current = 300 x 0.5421

= 162.63 A

For teaser transformer

Primary voltage = (√3/2) x 415 = 359.40 V

Secondary voltage = 225 V

Transformation ratio, K = Secondary voltage/ Primary voltage = 225/359.4 = 0.6260

Turns ratio, K = N

Primary line voltage = 3300 V

Secondary voltage = 125 V

Load carried by teaser secondary = 300 kW at 0.707 p.f.

Load carried by main secondary = 400 kW at 0.707 p.f.

Transformation ratio for main transformer, K =V

Transformation ratio for teaser transformer, K = 1.1547 x Transformation ratio for main transformer

= 1.1547 x 0.0378 = 0.0436

Power supplied by teaser transformer = 300 kW at 0.707 p.f.

Secondary current in teaser transformer, I

Primary current in teaser transformer, = Transformation ratio for teaser transformer x I

= 0.0436 x 3394.62 = 148 A

Secondary current in main transformer, I

Primary current in main transformer, I

= 0.0378 x 452.16 = 171.08 A

In addition to this current each half of the primary winding of the main transformer carries half of teaser primary current.

Total current carried = √

I

The three line currents are I

Since the power factors of the load for the main transformer and the teaser transformer are equal, the phase angle between the secondary currents is also 90°. The angle between the primary currents I

_{1T}and I_{1M}is also 90°. Thus the three line currents I_{R},I_{Y}and I_{B}are displaced from each other by 120° and lag the respective phase voltages by an angle Φ. This proves that if the tow phase load is balanced then the loading on the three phase side is also balanced. Now we will consider the case of unbalanced tow phase load having different currents and different power factors. The phasor diagram for this case can be constructed in a similar manner. It is shown in the Fig. 5.

Fig. 5 |

**Example 1**: Two transformers are required for a Scott connection operating from a 415 V, 3 phase supply for supplying two single phase furnaces 225 V on the two phase side. If the total output is 150 KVA, calculate the secondary to primary turns ratio and the winding currents for each transforme.

**Solution**: For the main transformer

Primary voltage = 415 V

Secondary voltage = 225 V

Transformation ratio, K = Secondary voltage / Primary voltage = 225/415 = 0.5421

Turns ratio = N

_{2}/N

_{1}= 0.5421

Secondary current = (150 x 10

^{3})/( 2 x 225) = 30 A

Primary current = 300 x 0.5421

= 162.63 A

For teaser transformer

Primary voltage = (√3/2) x 415 = 359.40 V

Secondary voltage = 225 V

Transformation ratio, K = Secondary voltage/ Primary voltage = 225/359.4 = 0.6260

Turns ratio, K = N

_{2}/N

_{1}= 0.6260

**Example 2**: In a Scott connection, calculate the values of line currents on the three phase side, if the loads on 2 phase side are 300 kW and 400 kW, both at 125 V and 0.707 p.f. and the three phase line voltage is 3300 V. The 300 kW load is on the leading phase of the 2 phase side. Neglect the losses.

**Solution :**

Primary line voltage = 3300 V

Secondary voltage = 125 V

Load carried by teaser secondary = 300 kW at 0.707 p.f.

Load carried by main secondary = 400 kW at 0.707 p.f.

Transformation ratio for main transformer, K =V

Transformation ratio for teaser transformer, K = 1.1547 x Transformation ratio for main transformer

Power supplied by teaser transformer = 300 kW at 0.707 p.f.

Secondary current in teaser transformer, I

_{2T}= (300 x 10

^{3}) / (125 x 0.707) = 3394.62 A

= 0.0436 x 3394.62 = 148 A

**.**Line current, I

In addition to this current each half of the primary winding of the main transformer carries half of teaser primary current.

awesome tut!!

ReplyDeletethnx a lot. it really helped me.

question1) secondary current should be 333.33 Amps.... its a minor calc. mistake

Thank you very much.
