Solution

## The correct option is D 3.753%Given maximum efficiency of transformer is 98% at 80% of full load at 0.8 p.f lagging. At maximum efficiency, x2Pcu=Pi x=0.8 So, (0.8)2Pcu=Pi 0.98=0.8×0.80.8×0.8+Pi+(0.8)2Pcu 2Pi=0.64(10.98−1) 2Pi=0.01306 p.u Pi=(0.8)2Pcu =0.00653p.u (0.8)2Pcu=0.00653 Pcu=0.0102p.u. Pcu=I22R2=0.0102p.u. %ofR2=1.02% and leakage reactance, X2=5%or0.05p.u. Voltage regulation=I2R2cosϕ+I2X2sinϕV2 =0.0102×0.8+0.05×0.61=0.03816(or)3.816%
