TRANSFORMER MVA SIZING USING ETAP By Waqar Hussain Electrical Dept.

INTRODUCTION 

y , transformer is one of manyy In p power systems, devices whose proper size is critical to the design of a power delivery system.

ETAP has complied p the information contained on standards ANSI – IEEE C57, IEC 60076-2 and IEC 60726 into a program that can easily determine the proper size of a power transformer

FACTORS FOR TRAFO MVA SIZING IN ETAP ETAP takes into consideration the following factors for trafo MVA sizing Ambient temperature Altitude Cooling Stage Type (dry or liquid fill) Expected future growth Short circuit requirement (trafo impedence and BIL)

2 WINDING TRAFO MVA SIZING The two winding transformer MVA sizing calculation sizes the following parameters of a transfomer Rated

MVA Maximum MVA Percentage impedance Maximum MVA is 1.25 times the rated MVA for ONAN – ONAF trafo.

2 WINDING TRAFO MVA SIZING (CONTD.) (CONTD ) Transformer Loading This section allows you to find the operating load ( l l t d from (calculated f load l d flow fl analysis) l i ) or connected t d load to this transformer and then use either load for sizingg p purposes p  Also you can manually enter the loading for the transformer  While sizing transformer based on connected load, spares can also be included 

2 WINDING TRAFO MVA SIZING (CONTD.) (CONTD ) Load Variation

Growth Factor – For allowance for future growth. Growth factor is used for calculating the rated MVA of a transformer. If “Use growth factor for max MVA” is checked, then it is used for calculating the max MVA Load Factor – is 100 % if the transformer carries required load continuously all the time

2 WINDING TRAFO MVA SIZING (CONTD.) (CONTD ) Installation

ETAP adjusts the calculated required Rated MVA based on trafo’s altitude value. For example p for Liquid q Immersed Forced Air Cooled trafo, the MVA rating is derated by factor 0.5 % for every 330 ft above 3300 ft. ft Ambient Temp. ETAP adjusts the required Rated MVA based on ambient temperature value

2 WINDING TRAFO MVA SIZING (CONTD.) (CONTD ) p Impedance

Basic Impulse p Level ((BIL)) Limit - ETAP utilizes this value for determining the trafo minimum impedance according to ANSI – IEC standards Limit Short Circuit kA – If this option is checked, then ETAP calculates % impedance based on short circuit kA, trafo type and BIL Limit

2 WINDING TRAFO MVA SIZING (CONTD.) (CONTD ) Results

Any one of the three results can be selected: Larger size, Required size or smaller size

OTHER REQUIRED DATA FOR TRAFO SIZING ON ETAP

     

Standard (IEC or ANSI) Type (Liquid fill or Dry) Sub type (mineral oil oil, synthetic liquid etc …)) Class (ONAN, ONAN-ONAF, OFAF etc …) Temperature rize Primary Winding kV rating

REGULATION OF TRAFO ON MOTOR START 

One of the factors to be considered while sizing a trafo is the voltage drop on the terminals of the largest motor (connected to trafo secondary) during motor start.

According to IEEE Brown Book, the voltage at terminals of starting motor should not fall below 80% of rated voltage for typical NEMA design B motors

This voltage drop is proportional to the regulation of trafo during motor start

The voltage drop at trafo secondary (regulation) during motor start is inversely proportional to trafo short circuit kVA and directly proportional to motor starting kVA

The Transformer MVA Sizing Module of ETAP does not take into account this factor. The regulation of trafo can be checked by Motor Starting Study on ETAP

REGULATION OF TRAFO ON MOTOR START pp g p y Approximate voltage drop on the transformer secondary   can be calculated by the following formula

Where D = % Voltage drop on secondary side D  % Voltage drop on secondary side P = Peak Load on trafo in kVA other than largest Motor  M = Starting kVA of largest Motor M = Starting kVA of largest Motor S = Short circuit capacity of trafo in kVA

SIZING MODULE 

Based on Operating transformer load, t f l d 120 % growth factor (for max MVA or ONAF) and 28 degree C p , the ambient temp. recommended size by ETAP is 20-25 MVA at ONAN-ONAF

Here worst case load is considered for GT, HRSG and ST MCC MCC, as provided by HET. (This load is included as “lump 1” in ETAP model)

Increase in trafo output kVA as trafo ratingg is increased. ? 20 % of the lump load in UCH2 ETAP model is static

For good voltage regulation at trafo sec. the static load consumes more kVA

Decrease in trafo input kVA as trafo ratingg is increased. ? Trafo % Z is taken as contant at 10 %

For ONAN – ONAF rated trafo, ETAP performs Load flow at ONAN rating

As per IEEE Standard 399-1997, IEEE Recommended Practice for Industrial and Commercial Power System Analysis (Brown Book), the Voltage at terminal of Motor g duringg startingg shall not fall below 80 % of rated voltage.

Hence this condition is satistfied for all the three different trafo ratings

Motor Rated Voltage: Please note that the motor rated voltage is 6.3 kA where as the MV bus and trafo sec. rated voltage is 6.6 kV For ONAN – ONAF rated trafo, ETAP performs Motor Start at ONAN rating

Almost same results using formula and ETAP, confirms the validity of the formula used in UCH2 trafo sizing calculations

Starting kVA of motor = Full Load kVA x 6 = 11412 kVA Peak load on trafo excluding motor load = 13869 kVA

SUMMARY ……. UPSIZING OF UCH2 UAT FROM 16 -20 MVA TO 20 – 25 MVA Before addition of 1 MW colony feeder and two 825 kW HSD Electric Heaters

For 16 – 20 MVA trafo, at motor start the voltage at MV bus was greater than 90 %

After addition of 1 MW colony feeder and two 825 kW HSD Electric Heaters

For 16 – 20 MVA trafo, at motor start the voltage at MV bus became lesser than 90 %

Mushtaq Sb. (from PMT) required the voltage to be greater than 90 %

To incorporate this comment, UAT rating was increased to 20 – 25 MVA trafo at 8 % Z
