Why transformer rating in kVA?
As Cu loss of transformer depends on current and iron loss
on voltage. Hence, total transformer loss depends on volt-apmere (VA) and not
on phase angle between voltage and current. i.e it is independent of load power
factor. That is why rating of transformers is in KVA and not in KW.
