Typical transformer X/R ratios

Typical transformer X/R ratios

Typical transformer X/R ratios

Is there a source of information that outlines typical transformer X/R ratios depending on MVA and voltage rating?

Also would be helpful to have the same information for underground cables.

RE: Typical transformer X/R ratios

IEEE 141 the Red Book has curves indicating typical X/R ratios.

RE: Typical transformer X/R ratios

For US market, the Red book gives X/R values. (Annexure 4A of IEEE 141-1993) But these values were taken from IEEE C 37.010 of 1979 -Application guide for HV circuit Breakers.C37.010 was revised in 1999. So, fig 17 of C37.010 will be more appropriate. For IEC areas, typical %Z values are given in IEC/TR 60909-2ed2.0-2008- Short circuit current calculation - Data of equipment for short circuit current calculation.

RE: Typical transformer X/R ratios

Thanks prc for the insightful reply.
The current revision of IEEE C37.010 is dated 2016.
Not sure whether there is any further change in X/R value chart for transformers!
