It might be.

Or it might not.

You need to specify the transformer's turns ratio or its impedance ratio, and th eload on the secondary.

### The purpose of transformer percentage impedance?

Inherently, the actual impedance seen at the secondary voltage
will be different than that seen at the primary voltage. To make
things easy, we use symmetrical components, where transformers are
reduced to a p.u. (per unit) impedance. 100 x p.u. is equivalent to
the percentage impedance you are referring to. When converted to
per unit, a transformer has one impedance, not two, so it does not
matter whether you are looking through the transformer from the
secondary or the primary.

### What is the relationship between frequency and the size of a transformer?

Basically the characteristics of a transformer depends on the
impedance(resistance) and on the coupling of its primary and
secondary coils.
The impedance of a coil depends on the frequency, as the
frequency increases you need less volume of iron core and less
number of turns in the coil for a given impedance, then reducing
the size of the transformer.

### When 440 volts and 300 amps is given as an input to the transformer the output obtained is 11 kva in this secondary current will decrease or not?

Your question reveals a misunderstanding of how a transformer
works.
The primary current of a transformer is determined by the
secondary current, not the other way around. When the
secondary voltage is applied to a load, a secondary current flows,
and its value is determined by the secondary voltage and the load
impedance. This secondary current then determines the value of the
primary current.

### Impedance of a 500kVA transformer?

When transformer secondary is short circuited & primary
voltage is raised, current in the secondary winding increases from
0 to rated current (say, 667A at 433V), a small voltage appears at
the secondary windings. This percentage of this voltage to the
rated secondary voltage is expressed as %age impedance. IEC table
76-5 provides following details :
Rated KVA %impedance

### Fundamental principle of current transducer?

The basic principle of current transformer is same as that of
the power transformer. Like the power transformer current

Whenever an alternating current flows through the primary winding
alternating magnetic flux is produced, which then induces
alternating current in the secondary winding. In case of current
transformers the load impedance or "burden" is very small.
Therefore the current transformer operates under short circuit
conditions. Also the current in the secondary winding does not

### What current does a supply transformer produce under short circuit conditions?

This depends on source impedance, voltage level, and transformer
impedance.
If you wish to assume zero source impedance (maximum short
circuit currents), you can calculate a three phase fault by:
I = (V) / (1.732 x Zt x Zb)
I = the individual phase current
V = phase to phase voltage
Zt = the transformer percent impedance (usually between
4-20%)
Zb = scalar of base MVA used to calculate the percent
impedance
Zb = V^2 / (BASE MVA)
