4160 primary delta
480 volt secondary wye
Dual rated 1500/1935
Whats the best this transformor can be expected to put out .
I know 1935x1000=1935000 divided by 7196.8 (1.73x4160)=268.9 amps on pri.
1935000 divided by divided by 830.4 (1.73x480) = 2330
450.3a for fusing pri. and secondary
Supervised location
But what percentage of transformer full load current can one trully expect a transformer to perform at and be reliable???
reason I;m asking, its designed to feed a 5000 amp buss with a load I calulatate at min 3500 amps .Just interested in transformer info not a bunch of unrelated

DETAILS.
