    transformer utilization factor

    Hi,
    can anyone help me?
    what is TUF (Transformer Utilization Factor ??? I think) mean?
    and what is it used for?
    thanx

    Transformer Utilization Factor (TUF) can be used to determine the rating of a transformer secondary.

    It is determined by considering the primary and the secondary winding separately.

    electronics tuf

    Salahshoor,
    TUF is the ratio of DC power provided by a rectifier to the average of the VA ratings of the primary and secondary.
    ~
    TUF = Pdc/((VAp + VAs)/2) = 2Pdc/(VAp + VAs).
    ~
    TUF is a function of the rectifier topology.
    Regards,
    Kral

    Re: TUF???? in power electronics

    Please take a look at the following presentation

    http://cas.web.cern.ch/acceleratorin.../Visintini.pdf

    it not only gives the definition of TUF, but it also provides the TUF for
    several well-known topologies.

    Best regards,
    v_c
