Introduction to Power Transformers

What Are Power Transformers?

Power transformers are devices used to transfer electrical energy from one circuit to another through electromagnetic induction. They can increase (step-up) or decrease (step-down) voltages to meet the needs of power distribution systems.

Why Are Power Transformers Important?

  • They ensure the safe and efficient transmission of electrical power.
  • Help in reducing power loss over long distances.

How Do Power Transformers Work?

At their core, power transformers consist of two coils of wire wrapped around a magnetic core. When electrical energy flows through the primary coil, it generates a magnetic field that induces a voltage across the secondary coil, transforming the power level.
