    (VL-L/sqrt(3)) = VL-G
    Great answer thank you. I think line to neutral voltages can be confusing.

    Your Answer: 1:20

    The test considered this answer wrong. The primary to secondary voltage ratio is 1 to 20. I'm sure the correct answer is 20:1, but grammatically speaking, the 1:20 answer is more correct. The following is from the noted study material:

    Since there is a ratio of 1 to 4 between the turns in the primary and secondary circuits, there must be a ratio of 1 to 4 between the primary and secondary voltage and a ratio of 4 to 1 between the primary and secondary current. Please advise.
    7200/1.732=4157
    4157/360=11.5

You should always use the phase voltages to get a ratio, especially when dealing with a WYE-Delta configuration. Using phase voltages your math should be 4,160V/360V = 11.55:1 Ratio not 1:11.55. Turns ration is stated with the Primary Turns First. So in this case the Primary voltage is higher so the ratio will begin with the higher number of turns.
    thats right

    Question is wrong?

    I believe this question is wrong. On D-D system there's only Line voltage. So the answer it's a direct division between the two available voltages 7200/360 = 20:1.

    On Y-D, you must divide the Line voltage on the primary to get the related phase voltage. In the secondary there's only one available voltage, which is the Phase one. So, the \TTR would be 7200/sqrt(3) / 480 = 11.55:1
