Center tap capacity of a center tapped delta secondary
Applies to Transformers with center tapped delta secondaries by SquareD/Schneider Electric
Center tap capacity must be limited based on Transformer design factors
Delta-Delta connected Transformers are intended to supply balanced three-phase loads, such as motors. Unbalanced loading will cause a circulating current to flow in the windings. This additional current is like a ``hidden`` load with the Transformer windings and can severely de-rate or even overload the Transformer. Adding a center tap on the secondary for a combination of a 240V three-phase and 120V single-phase loads will exacerbate the effect in a more severe imbalance. In older design Transformers by SquareD/Schneider Electric, such as those with catalog numbers ending in T6HCT, the amount of the imbalance was limited to 5% to help prevent excessive circulating currents. Newer designs, such as the EE75T151HCT, have a much higher, 30% limit to loading on the center tap. See below attachment for more details.
