Pass Criteria:

In order to establish that the vector group of transformer is Dyn11, following conditions must be satisfied:

1. 1W-2w < 1W-2v
2. 1V-2w =1v-2v
3. 1U-2W = 1U-2v


1. Position the OLTC on tap 1.
2. Apply three phase 415V to HV winding using a 3-phase voltage source. Record the voltages on each phase of the HV and LV windings.
3. Calculate the voltage ratios for each phase and the average of the three ratios. Calculate the % difference with respect to the nominal ratio corresponding to the tap position.
4. Repeat the above for all the tap positions of the OLTC.


1. Connect the supply to HV side, keeping the LV winding open circuited
2. Record the applied voltage and the excitation current drawn by the transformer.


1. Keep the tap position in normal tap(NT).
2. Apply 415V AC across U - V phase of the HV winding using a 3-phase voltage source.
3. Record the phase to phase voltages across other combinations of HV windings. i.e. between
V – W and U – W.
4. Repeat the above procedure for other two phase combinations i.e. VW and WU.


 Measurement of resistance of HV winding.

1. Connect the Current source between terminals 1U and 1V to measure the resistance of U phase winding.  Keep the tap position at 1
2. Apply a current of 5 Amps. Record the value of voltage in the Voltmeter connected across the terminals. Repeat the measurements for all the tap positions.
3. Repeat the measurement in a similar fashion for 1V-1W and 1W-1U windings.
4. Calculate the resistance values at each tap position and their mean value corrected to 75°C.

 Measurement of resistance of LV winding.:

1.Connect the Current source between terminals 2u and 2N to measure the resistance of U phase winding. 
2.Apply a current of 5 Amps. Record the value of voltage in the Voltmeter connected across the terminals 2u and 2N.
3.Repeat the measurements for V phase and W phase windings.
4.Calculate the resistance values of U phase; V phase and W phase windings and their mean value corrected to 75°C..


R75  =  Rt x [ (235 + 75) / (235 + t°) ]
Rt     =  Resistance Measured at t°C.


1. Check that the power supply source.
2. Check operation of cooler fans. Verify that the fans are running and their direction of rotation is correct. Next change the position of switch to auto position. Turn the needle on the WTI dial to 55°C and verify that the fans start running due to closure of WTI contact. Repeat the test for OTI operation.
3.Check for control circuit as per scheme.


By operating the micro switch manually


1.Check the alarm and trip contact of the following devices.

  • Oil thermometer
  • Winding temp.indicator
  • Gas relay for transformer

2.    Max and min of Oil level gauge for transformer

3.    Trip contact of Protective relay for OLTC & pressure relief device
