What are the types and characteristics of transformers?

How the transformer works The primary winding and the secondary winding of the transformer are equivalent to two inductors. When an alternating voltage is applied to the primary winding, an electromotive force is formed on the primary winding, generating an alternating magnetic field, and the secondary winding is subjected to the primary winding. The induced … Continue reading What are the types and characteristics of transformers?
