We are doing a job that involves the installation of two 30kva UPS units. There is a 600 volt feeder coming from an ATS feeding an MDP which feeds two 75 KVA 600-120/208 volt transformers.
Both transformers have a panel on their secondary sides. Each panel has two breakers, UPS 1 and UPS 2 so the UPS units are double fed. That all makes sense but one of the transformers is 30 degrees out of phase while the other is 0...I am curious as to why they would use a phase shifting transformer in this setup? Can't say I have come across this before...
All delta/wye transformers have a 30° phase shift primary to secondary. That being said I am not sure how you can get a 30° phase shift between the secondaries of the two transformers, I could understand a 60° shift, but not a 30.
