Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT)

Tweet 151 Views What is an LVDT? LVDT is an acronym for Linear Variable Differential Transformer. It is a common type of electromechanical transducer that can convert the rectilinear motion of an object to which it is coupled mechanically into a corresponding electrical signal. LVDT linear position sensors are readily available that can measure movements as […]

Three-phase Y and Delta Configurations | Polyphase AC Circuits

Tweet 319 Views Initially we explored the idea of three-phase power systems by connecting three voltage sources together in what is commonly known as the “Y” (or “star”) configuration. This configuration of voltage sources is characterized by a common connection point joining one side of each source. (Figure below)             Three-phase “Y” connection has three voltage […]

Vector Group of Transformer

Tweet 110 Views Vector Group of Transformer Introduction: Three phase transformer consists of three sets of primary windings, one for each phase, and three sets of secondary windings wound on the same iron core. Separate single-phase transformers can be used and externally interconnected to yield the same results as a 3-phase unit. The primary windings […]
