Aim: To Calibrate LPF wattmeter by Phantom Loading. Apparatus: 1) Voltmeter - 300V Digital --> 1 2) Ammeter - 10A Digital --> 1 3) Phase shifting Transformer - 415V/15A --> 1 4) Auto Transformer - 240V/0-270V,10A --> 1 5) Power Factor meter - 230V,10A-Dynamometer --> 1 6) Wattmeter(LPF) - 230V,10A-Dynamometer --> 1 7) Connecting wires Procedure: 1) Keep connections as per circuit diagram. 2) Keep Auto Transformer in minimum position and On toggle Switch. 3) Vary the transformer at Power coil till voltmeter reads rated value. 4) Vary phase shifting transformer to set power factore at 0.2 lag. 5) Now slowly vary the auto transformer at Current coil in Steps. 6) Note the values of wattmeter at each step of current. 7) Repeat the above step till Ammeter reads rated current. 8) Calculate percentage of error. Plot the graph between current and percentage of error, keep current on X-axis and % error at Y-axis. Calculations: Wa = VxIxCosQ watts. Wm = watts. % error = [(Wa-Wm)*100]/Wm. Precautions: 1) Avoid loose connections. 2) Avoid parallax errors.
• 3) Keep wattmeter and P.F meter in parallel.

# How do you calibrate single phase energy meter by phantom loading?

The phantom loading is that no external load is connected in actual sense and the current and pressure coils are connected seperatly so that it will consume only less power. I

Phantom loading is the power supply being used in your home thatyou do not think about or realize. This power consumption is theresult of items in the home that are kept on st

The phantom loading is that no external load is connected in actual sense and the current and pressure coils are connected seperatly so that it will consume only less power. I

# How do you Calibrate energy meter with the help of wattmeter and stop watch?

A watt is one joule per second - a joule is the SI unit of energy.

# What is difference between lpf and upf wattmeters?

LPF wattmeter is used for measuring power in highly inductive circuits & UPF wattmeter is used for measure power in resistance circuit in which the power factor ranges from 0.

# Application of calibration wattmetre by phantom loding?

When you are building a circuit of unknown reliablity then you will need to test it to find out if it works. The term bech testing is a method of building a ciruit, applying a

# How do you calibrate three phase energy meter by phantom loading?

These devices contribute to the energy-wasting phenomenon called "phantom power," or vampire energy. Simply put, this is the power that is used when electronic devices draw en

# Why is LPF wattmeter used for no load test?

In case of no load only magnetizing current is flowing which is somewhere around 75 degree out of phase and so the power factor is very low.

it refers to the electric power consumed by electrical or electronic appliances when they are in stand by mode. eg:-tv, computer,laptop.

# Why lpf wattmeter used in no load?

Basically at noloads the current value is less so we use lpf at no loads

# How do you measure power by three wattmeter in balanced load?

The three-wattmeter method work in a 3-phase system even when it'sunbalanced. For a system that's guaranteed balanced one wattmetercan be used, and mutiply the answer by 3.

# What is LPF?

LPF is Low power factor, which is used to calculate overall power in VA (voltamps) kind of like calculating overall power in watts.

# What is the definition of phantom load?

A load that is not really there.

# Is there any difference in values between the two wattmeter method and three wattmeter method if you apply these two methods in same load?

Blondel's Theorem states that you can have one less wattmeter than there are conductors supplying a balanced or unbalanced load. In either case, the sum of the wattmeter readi

# What does wattmeter indicate in blocked and no load test?

A water meter that says no load test means one thing. The thingthat it means is iron loss.

# Why we are using inductive loads for calibration?

You need to specify the kind of calibration you are asking, to getthe right answer
