What is all day efficiency or operational efficiency with respect to transformers?
To understand all day efficiency first commercial efficiency of a transformer needs to be calculated. Commercial efficiency is the ratio of output (in watts) to input (in watts) for a given transformer. For distribution transformers core losses occur throughout the day but copper losses occur only when the transformer is under a load. In such a case the commercial efficiency decreases. To judge a transformer's practical efficiency all day efficiency is calculated as the ratio of output (in watts) to input (in watts) for a period of 24 hours.
Subject: C++ Programming
What is the use of vectors in C++ and how is it different from arrays in C++?
Vectors are a contiguous storage element used in C++. They are similar to arrays in this aspect. They have a key difference with respect to arrays as their size is dynamic. The pointer operations that are valid for arrays are also valid for vectors as memory access is similar for both kinds of data structure elements.
