525.) Two single-phase transformers with identical voltage ratings are proposed to be connected in parallel to serve a load. The following rating and impedance data are provided:

Transformer 1: 1,000kVA, Z= 4.5%

Transformer 2: 2,000kVA, Z= 6.0%

The maximum total load (kVA) that can be served by the bank without overloading either transformer is most nearly:

A.) 2,333

B.) 2,500

C.) 2,667

D.) 3,000

Okay, I don't know much about paralleling transformers. Could someone give me an explanation on this one.....particularly on the solution's statement: "The transformers will load in inverse proportion to their impedances."

Thanks guys
