Impulse testing of large power transformers is a routine test, which is designed to mimic a lightning strike in service. At the design stage, it is useful to have a detailed circuit model of the transformer in order to simulate the impulse test and to check for possibly damaging voltage stress levels. In the authors' model, which includes capacitive and inductive couplings, as well as resistive effects, they apply an ideal full or chopped waveform to the impulsed terminal. In an actual impulse test, it is sometimes difficult to approximate the ideal waveform, particularly the full-wave one, and a trial-and-error approach is often taken. Here, they describe an approach that couples a circuit model of the impulse generator with a transformer circuit model and show how, from this combination, they can arrive at close to ideal settings for the generator, provided such settings are possible
