Also know, what does a transformer do and why is that important?
Transformers play an important role in the power system. Transformers have two groups of coils — primary and secondary those are associated with magnetic fields that act as conductors. Step-up transformers are used to increase the voltage and step-down transformers are used to reduce the voltage levels.
what is the purpose of matching current transformer? Transformers can be used to transform impedance as well as voltage and current. When this is done to improve power transfer to a load, it is called impedance matching.
Also know, what is the difference between a step up transformer?
The major difference between step-up and step-down transformer is, step-up transformer raises the output voltage, whereas step-down transformer reduces the output voltage.
How do you know if a transformer is primary or secondary?
- First turn ON digital multimeter and select continuity mode.
- Connect the test leads to the Transformer terminals.
- Read the measurement value is displayed.
- displayed multimeter value is between 300 to 700, this side is primary.
- displayed multimeter value is between 2 to 3, this side is secondary.
