Teaching Calculation of Transformer Equivalent Circuit Parameters using MATLAB/Simulink for Undergraduate Electric Machinery Courses


Background/Objectives: Computer-based educations have become popular thanks to their useful and flexible structures in classroom environment. Methods/Statistical analysis: This paper presents MATLAB/Simulink implementation of transformer tests, namely dc, open-circuit, and short-circuit tests performed to identify equivalent circuit parameters and effective education of transformer modeling at electric machinery courses and reinforcement of the theoretical concepts given at these courses. Results: The proposed method has been successfully integrated into electric machinery courses at Author University with very encouraging results. The results show that relative errors are negligible, and the proposed simulation models accurately predict equivalent circuit parameters. Conclusion/Application: This method will be very helpful for students when they carry out hardware laboratory experiments in electric machinery courses
