Step-up Transformer Applications

Step-up transformer

Step-up transformer is an electric device that raises the voltage of the secondary side (winding) to the primary side (winding). A transformer is a static device that is used to step up voltage and step down the voltage. Power remains the same on the primary side and the secondary side of the transformer. As we …

Transformer Cooling Methods and Systems

Transformer Cooling methods

Transformer Cooling Methods A transformer in operation develops heat as a result of the copper and core losses during operation. Heat is not produced rapidly in small transformers, but the rate is much higher in large transformers. The rate of heat production determines how high the operating temperature rises above the ambient temperature. There are many  …
