What size transformer do I need for a 100 amp panel?

It’s very common to see a 100 amp breaker in a 480 panel feeding a 75 KVA transformer and a 225 amp main in the 120/208 panel.

What size transformer do you need for a 200 amp panel?

A single 50 kVA transformer would supply a 200 ampere residential service, NOT a 400 ampere service.

How do I work out what size transformer I need?

Since you know kVA = V * l / 1,000, we can solve for V to get V = kVA * 1,000 / l. So you’ll multiply your kVA rating by 1,000 and then divide by the amperage. If your transformer has a kVA rating of 75 and your amperage is 312.5, you’ll plug those numbers into the equation — 75 * 1,000 / 312.5 = 240 volts.

How much load can a 50 kVA transformer handle?

Three Phase Transformer

KVA 208V 2400V
37.5 104 9.03
45 125 10.8
50 139 12.0
60 167 14.5

What size breaker feeds a 45 kVA transformer?

For a 45kVA transformer, 125A×1.25=156A, so use a 175A protection device.

What size 110v transformer do I need?

The closest 110v transformer would be a 1.5 kVA, but, as mentioned above, I would go for a 2 kVA at least because the maximum ratings are for intermittent use (ie. power tools, sprayers, etc.) and 1.35 is a bit close to the maximum.

How many houses can a 50 kVA transformer supply?

However, at 1500 kWHr/month or 50 kWHr/day or at 2.083 kWHr/Hr or 2.083 kVA average. but this is average. I’d say most at one time might be 5 times that or 10kVA so one 50kVA transformer could supply 5 homes.

What size breaker do I need for a 75 kva transformer?

The rated current of the transformer can be used as the basis for a breaker. The rated current of a 3 phase, 75 kva transformer is 112 Amps, which is 25% of the rated current of a 125 Amp breaker.
