Linear nonideal delta-delta transformer with three-limb core

Library

Passive Devices / Transformers

Description

The Delta-Delta Transformer block models a linear, nonideal transformer with a three-limb core, in which both the primary and the secondary windings are configured in a delta connection. The block includes linear winding leakage and linear core magnetization effects.

The figure shows the equivalent circuit diagram for the delta-delta transformer.

  • w1a is the primary winding connected between the a-phase and the b-phase.

  • w1b is the primary winding connected between the b-phase and the c-phase.

  • w1c is the primary winding connected between the c-phase and the a-phase.

  • w2a is the secondary winding connected between the a-phase and the b-phase.

  • w2b is the secondary winding connected between the b-phase and the c-phase.

  • w2c is the secondary winding connected between the c-phase and the a-phase.
