You DO NOT NEED A TRANSFORMER!!! You Have 220 Volts Commint Into Your Breaker Box. Install A 50 Amp 2 Pole Breaker And Run A Circuit With 6 Guage Romex Wire To The Stove. You May Need To Go Under The House Or Whatever To Reach The Stove But Do It This Way. You won't have the capacity

Is it possible put a 33 kv to 400 v electric transformer inside an apartment building?

Yes, many large buildings are built with electrical vaults to house the electrical distribution system. The high voltage enters the building usually underground, where it connects to a transformer. The secondary side of the transformer is connected to a distribution system where the supply voltage is then sent to the individual apartment sub panels.

What would cause half your house to lose electric and the breaker not go off?

If all of the breakers are on one side, then you have lost one leg of the power coming into the house. Probably between the house and the nearest transformer.

What type of transformer is found outside a residential house?

Stepdown Transformer.

To moderate the high voltage of currents entering a house from power lines a is used?

transformer YES but transmission is 475kv and distribution is 16kv and finally one phase out of a transformer on a pole or on the ground. An electric switch yard will have transformers to reduce to distribution voltage.

What do they replace when upgrading from 60 amp to 100amp?

Usually you just have to replace the electric panel and maybe the electric meter and entrance cable. It would be unusual, but the power company may want to replace the cable from the local transformer to your house.

Which transformer step up or step down is used for supplying current from power house to home?

The transformer at your house steps down the voltage from the power company for use in your house.

What is the average voltage a house outlet will give?

The average voltage a house outlet will give actually depends on how far of a distance the house is from a transformer on the pole. If the house is fairly close to the transformer, it will probably give around 120 volts. However, if the house is a bit far from the transformer, it will probably give around 107 volts.

When would an arrow be used in a flowchart?

An arrow is used in a flowchart because it links one part to another. For example, a flow chart describing the process of electric energy: [Power plant] ---> [Transformer] ---> [Power lines] ---> [Transformer] ---> [House] ---> [Transformer] ---> [Device] As you can see, the arrows show the direction of where the flow chart is leading, telling the viewer where to begin, and where the to.

What is the minimum safe distance from a house and an electric transformer 13.8 KV?

The transformer enclosure should isolate the transformer sufficiently from the environment. I believe OSHA specifies 2 feet, 1 inch as the minimum appoach distance to 13.8kV, so I suppose a transformer could be put this close to a building and still be safe. My guess is there are codes in place in your local area that prevent this and specify some greater distance.

What is the duration of The Electric House?

The duration of The Electric House is 1320.0 seconds.

Which type of transformer is found outside a residential house?

In North America the transformer outside your home is classed as a step down transformer. It steps down a higher voltage (14000) to the split house working voltage of (120/240).

Can electricity be lost when the utility switches out the meter?

It is not entirely clear to me what you are asking, however I will answer the question I think you want the answer for. When the electric company technician unplugs the old kilowatt hour meter that will disconnect the electric power from your house of business. When the electric company technician plugs in the new kilowatt hour meter that will reconnect the electric power to your house of business. For his own safety before switching the meters the electric company technician will probably disconnect the electric power from your house of business on the power pole or in the utility transformer box before beginning the work. So, yes you will have no electric power while this work is being done.

What is unit transformer?

UniT transformer are step up transformer which is connected to generating house & step up voltage from 11/15kV votlage to 220/400kV voltage level as requirement or line design parameter. It is just like transformer but connected to unit of the generating house that's why we called it unit transformers.

How much voltage comes from the pole to the house?

What does a transformer between utility wires and your house do?

The transformer steps down the voltage from 600kilo volts which is what is at the power pole/lines to multiple strands of 120v or hot wires which is what your house runs off of.

What do electric substations do?

Electric substations either step up voltage or step down voltage for electric power distribution. For example, power being generated at a power plant would be stepped up in voltage for transmission over the electric grid. On the other hand, power coming into a residential neighborhood from the electric grid would be stepped down in voltage for distribution to individual homes. This increasing or decreasing of voltage will be accomplished by using transformers in the substation. There will also be electric circuit breakers in the substation located on both the high and low voltage sides of the transformer. These circuit breakers are used to be able to isolate the transformer from the electric grid for maintenance purposes or in case of an electrical fault that could damage the transformer. Most substations will also contain a Control House that contains all of the control equipment for the substation as well as battery backups in case of loss of power. Type your answer here...
