Abstract

This paper presents a virtual laboratory for testing a single-phase autotransformer using MATLAB Simulink environment. The model is implemented according to a practical laboratory used at electric machines’ discipline for the undergraduate level in electrical engineering. The model presented herein is a copy of a practical experiment for an autotransformer made in the test laboratory. The rating of the autotransformer is taken to be 2 kVA, 230/0÷230 V, and it was set at a transformer ratio of 1.5. The used model is a linear one and run for a pure resistive load test. In the same time, it was aimed the simulation accuracy as it was used a linear model, neglecting the magnetic saturation effect.

Keywords: single-phase autotransformer; Simulation; Virtual tests; Virtual laboratory
