Regular Delta-Wye Transformer VS -30 Degree Phase Shift Transformer

10/03/2012 3:00 PM

True or false?

"A regular delta-wye transformer (probably most common type TX in low voltage distribution ) provides a phase shift between primary and secondary of +30° WHEREAS a Harmonic mitigation transformer like the Type THR 30-Degree Phase Shift by Eaton provides phase shift between primary and secondary of -30 °."

I am working on a harmonic mitigation scheme that uses NEG -15° phase shift , POS +15 ° phase shift , NON (or zero) ° phase shift and +30° phase shift transformers. The calculations look good on paper but i want to make sure i can get +30° and -30° shifts. I know -15° and +15° are commercially available.

I forget which is which, but I think vector group 1 or 11 does this (the numbers give lead or lag in 30° increments, just like a clock).

Dyn11 = -30°

Dyn1 = +30°

Spot on Tornado with the clock face

Incorrect!

Dyn 11 is + 30 degree

Dyn1 is - 30 degrees

Well it seems i got good answers. Does any of you know why Eaton uses THR to describe their -30 phase shifting transformers?

What does THR stand for?

Thank you guys.
