Magnetic Circuit of the transformer consists of cores and yokes.The Primary and Secondary coils are split into A Transformer is a static electromagnetic device that transforms one alternating current system into another of different voltage and current without any change in two parts parts. Due to the high permeability of the core. It provides the path to the flow of magnetic flux. the induced emf in the winding circulates a current in it. it sets up an alternating flux in the magnetic core. Thus. The Frequency of the induced emf in the winding is same as that of the voltage in the first winding. Transformer consists of two windings that are electrically isolated from each other. Transformers play a major part in the transmission and distribution of ac power. If the other winding is connected to load. power is transferred from one winding to the other through the magnetic flux in the core. When a time varying voltage is applied to one winding.Half the turns of the primary and half the secondary turns are placed on each core.y y Hedgehog variocouplers frequency. . Transformers are classified on the three basis :- (a) Position of the windings with respect to core :- Core-Type Transformer Introduction To Transformer A Single phase core type transformer consists of a magnetic rame with two cores. most of the flux links the other winding and induces an alternating emf in that winding.upper yoke and bottom yoke.
used to step down the comparatively low transmission voltage to distribution voltage or the distribution voltage (11 KV) to standard service voltage (3 phi. (b) Transformation Ratio :- Power Transformer Step-up Transformer Transformers with ratings above 500 KVA It Transforms a low voltage. There are different types of transformer and each of them are useful in different purposes:- (1) Power Transformer (c) Type Of Services :(a) Laminated Core Distribution Transformer .Hence the number of turns in the primary coil is much larger compared to secondary coil.completing the path of magnetic flux.high current ac into a high voltage. These Transformers will be in operation during the load periods and can be disconnected during light load periods.Shell-Type Transformer Small step-down transformers up to 500KVA. Hence Power transformers should have maximum efficiency at nearly 80 percent full load.440V). A Single Phase Shell Type Transformer consists of a magnetic frame with a central core and two side cores.low current ac system.associated with low current into a low secondary voltage with high current. Step-down Transformer Applications It transforms high primary voltage.The Secondary coil consists of a large number of turns of find insulated copper wire and the primary coil contains a few turns of thick insulated wire. and used in generating stations and substations for stepping up or stepping down the voltage.
and the lower voltage from one end to a tap. Less robust. AC or pulsed voltage is applied across a portion of the winding. Core laminate stampings are usually in EI shape pairs. Small appliance and electronics transformers may have a thermal cut out built in. (c) Auto Transformer These have only a single winding. it is generally used in the transformation of ac voltage. one designed for stepping down a voltage will deliver slightly less voltage than required if used to step up. copper windings around that ring. This is true of isolated winding transformers too. Over-tightening the central fixing bolt may short the windings. Comparison of Toroidal Transformer with EI Core Transformer :--Lower external magnetic field. and tape for the insulation. The higher voltage will be connected to the ends of the winding. . Rectangular core.It is the most common type of transformer. Smaller for a given power rating. In practice. Small appliance and electronic transformers may use a split bobbin. which is unwanted in most other cases. It acts as a both voltage transformer and magnetic ballast.5 kV AC working voltage). It is doughnut shaped like transformer used to save space compared to EI cores and to reduce the external magnetic fields. Stray field transformers are used for arc welding and high voltage discharge lamps (cold cathode fluorescent lamps. The output and input currents are low enough to prevent thermal overload under each load condition . It can act as a transformer with inherent current limitation due to its lower coupling between the primary and the secondary winding. It¶s characteristics are : ---Available in power ratings ranging from m W to MW. giving a high level of insulation between the windings. series connected up to 7. transformer losses mean that autotransformers are not perfectly reversible. which is tapped at some point along the winding. (d) Stray Field Transformer (b) Toroidal Transformers These have a significant stray field or a magnetic bypass in its core.even if the secondary is shortened. Other shape pairs are sometimes used. as winding requires more complex and slower equipment. A screen winding is occasionally used between the 2 power windings. It consists of ring shaped core. Mu-metal shields can be fitted to reduce EMI (electromagnetic interference). Laminated core made with silicon steel with high permeability. and a higher (or lower) voltage is produced across another portion of the same winding. Eddy current losses can be reduced by a lamination of the core. The difference is usually slight enough to allow reversal where the actual voltage level is not critical. Higher cost in most cases.
The three primary windings are connected together and the three secondary windings are connected together. until it (h) Ferrit Core Power Transformer They are widely used in switched mode power supplies (SMPS). and hence much smaller size to power ratio . When the primary coil is driven by a periodic source of alternating current. and the current available can be much larger than that from electrostatic machines such as the Van de Graff generator or Wimshurst machine. and is connected in series with a capacitor. the ground may be connected to a center tap on one winding or one phase may be grounded (corner grounded delta). is limited by some process such as electrical breakdown. because regulating action depends on core saturation. a very high voltage can develop across the secondary. DeltaDelta and Y-Y. If a winding is connected to earth. where the selectivity of the receiver is provided by the tuned transformers of the intermediatefrequency amplifiers. These operates at the resonant frequency of one or more of its coils and an external capacitor. or all three phases can be connected to a single polyphase transformer. Delta-Y. acts as an inductor. The most common connections are Y-Delta. such as a square or sawtooth wave at the resonant frequency. The powder core enables high frequency operation. The output waveform is heavily distorted unless careful measures are taken to prevent this. A vector group indicates the configuration of the windings and the phase angle difference between them. which reduces efficiency somewhat. CVA transformers run hotter than standard power transformers. These devices are used to generate high alternating voltages. A special purpose polyphase transformer is the zigzag transformer. (g) Constant Voltage Transformer (f) Resonant Transformer By arranging particular magnetic properties of a transformer core. each pulse of current helps to build up an oscillation in the secondary coil.(e) Polyphase Transformer For three-phase transformer. usually the secondary. The resonant coil. and installing a ferro-resonant tank circuit. Saturating transformers provide a simple rugged method to stabilize an AC power supply. three separate single-phase transformers can be used. There are many possible configurations that may involve more or fewer than six windings and various tap connections. Due to resonance. If the secondary is a Delta winding. a transformer can be arranged to automatically keep the secondary winding voltage relatively constant for varying primary supply without additional circuitry or manual adjustment. Other applications of resonant transformers are as coupling between stages of a superheterodyne receiver. the earth connection point is usually the center point of a Y winding.
(j) Oil Cooled Transformer (l)Isolating Transformer These are used in power distribution or electrical substations. -> Almost all use a ferrite planar core. and so require no fire-proof valut for indoor installations. but to earn . oil pumps are used to circulate the oil and an oil-to-water heat exchanger may also be used. the core and coils of the transformer are immersed in oil which cools and insulates. without cooling oil. meaning the secondary winding is not connected to the primary. for low-profile applications. indoor transformers required to be fire-resistant used PCB liquids. However.than laminated iron transformers. Other planar transformers are one of many components on one large printed circuit board. is used in a building or underground. Oil circulates through ducts in the coil and around the coil and core assembly. moved by convection. Formerly. and in larger ratings an aircooled radiator is used. which may make them more costly if customized features are required. Extra voltage tapping is sometimes included. because the molds for casting the coils are only available in fixed sizes. Some are commercially sold as discrete components²the transformer is the only thing on that printed circuit board. The epoxy protects the windings from dust and corrosive atomospheres. Manufacturers etch spiral patterns on a printed circuit board to form the windings of a planar transformer. substitute fire-resistant liquids such as silicone oils are instead used. The oil is cooled by the outside of the tank in small ratings. the design of the transformers is less flexible. -> Much thinner than other transformers. These transformers simplify installation since they are dry. But this isn't true of all transformers. since these are now banned. Where a higher rating is required. (k) Cast Resin Transformer (i) Planar Transformer These encase the windings in epoxy resin. Ferrite transformers are not usable as power transformers at mains frequency. They are simply 1:1 laminated core transformers. or where the transformer Most transformers isolate. However the term 'isolating transformer' is normally applied to mains transformers providing isolation rather than voltage transformation.
(2) Instrument Transformer (a) Current Transformer (b) Voltage Transformer It is a measurement device designed to provide a current in its secondary coil proportional to the current flowing in its primary. H2 and X1.the name 'isolating transformer' it is expected that they will usually be used at 1:1 ratio. Sometimes a second isolated winding may also be available on the same voltage transformer. The current transformer safely isolates measurement and control circuitry from the high voltages typically present on the circuit being measured. an external integrator in order to provide a proportional output. called a Rogowski coil. Correct identification of terminals and wiring is essential for proper operation of metering and protection relays. X2 and sometimes an X3 tap may be present. to measure high frequency waveforms or pulsed currents within pulsed power systems. The terminal identifications are often referred to as polarity. They are designed to present negligible load to the supply being measured and to have a precise voltage ratio to accurately step down high voltages so that metering and protective relay equipment can be operated at a lower potential. At any instant terminals with the same suffix numeral have the same polarity and phase. Current transformers are commonly used in metering and protective relaying in the electrical power industry where they facilitate the safe measurement of large currents. as this will produce a dangerously high voltage across the open secondary and may permanently affect the accuracy of the transformer. usually with an oscilloscope. The transformer winding high-voltage connection points are typically labeled as H1. Typically the secondary of a voltage transformer is rated for 69 V or 120 V at rated primary voltage. Specially constructed wideband CTs are also used. This applies to current transformers as well. requires Voltage Transformers or Potential Transformers are another type of instrument transformer. to match the input ratings of protection relays. . One type provides a voltage output that is proportional to the measured current. often in the presence of high voltages. used for metering and protection in high-voltage circuits. The secondary winding can be single ratio or have several tap points to provide a range of ratios. another. They are often constructed by passing a single primary turn through a wellinsulated toroidal core wrapped with many turns of wire. Care must be taken that the secondary winding is not disconnected from its load while current flows in the primary. The low side (secondary) is usually phase to ground. The high side (primary) may be connected phase to ground or phase to phase. The CT is typically described by its current ratio from primary to secondary.
because a pulse with slow edges would create switching losses in the power semiconductors. Larger power versions are used in the electrical power distribution industry to interface low-voltage control circuitry to the highvoltage gates of power semiconductors. modern meters eliminate the need VTs for most secondary service voltages. Small versions called signal types are used in digital logic and telecommunications circuits. (b) Ferrite-Core Transformer It is widely used in intermediate frequency stages in superheterodyne radio receivers.While VTs were formerly used for all voltages greater than 240 V primary. For the same reason. a pulse transformer needs to have low values of leakage inductance and distributed capacitance. They have a duty cycle of less than 1. high insulation resistance and high breakdown voltage are required. Medium-sized power versions are used in power-control circuits such as camera flash controllers. and a high opencircuit inductance. Generally speaking. the larger and more expensive the transformer. the larger this product. The product of the peak pulse voltage and the duration of the pulse (or more accurately. whatever energy stored in the coil during the pulse must be dumped out before the pulse is fired again. particle accelerators. In power-type pulse transformers. (4) RF Transformer There are several types of transformer used in radio frequency work. The . Steel laminations are not suitable for RF. the voltage-time integral) is often used to characterise pulse transformers. To minimise distortion of the pulse shape. (a) Air-Core Transformer These are used for high frequency work. VTs are typically used in circuits where the system voltage level is above 600 V. often for matching logic drivers to transmission lines. Modern meters eliminate the need of VT's since the voltage remains constant and it is measured in the incoming supply. (3) Pulse Transformer It is a transformer that is optimised for transmitting rectangular electrical pulses. Such transformers may be nothing more than a few turns of wire soldered onto a printed circuit board. Special high voltage pulse transformers are also used to generate high power pulses for radar. A good transient response is necessary to maintain the rectangular pulse shape at the secondary. or other high energy pulsed power applications. These are mostly tuned transformers. containing a threaded ferrite slug that is screwed in or out to adjust IF tuning. The lack of a core means very low inductance. a low coupling capacitance is important to protect the circuitry on the primary side from high-powered transients created by the load.
Early transistor audio power amplifiers often had output transformers. For good low-frequency response a relatively large iron core is required. sometimes bifilar or coaxial cable. The core material increases the inductance dramatically. wound around ferrite or other types of core. Transformers are also used in DI boxes to convert high-impedance instrument signals to low impedance signals to enable them to be connected to a microphone input on the mixing console. electronic circuits with wide frequency response and low distortion are relatively simple to design. RF transformers sometimes used a third coil to inject feedback into an earlier stage in antique regenerative radio receivers. but they were eliminated as designers discovered how to design amplifiers without them. These transformers are usually the factor which limit sound quality when used. These are sometimes made from configurations of transmission line and sometimes bifilar or coaxial cable and are similar to transmission line transformers in construction and operation. (c) Transmission-Line Transformer For radio frequency use. but an output transformer is needed to couple the relatively high impedance of the output valve to the low impedance of a loudspeaker. All this makes for an expensive component. Good high-frequency response requires carefully designed and implemented windings without excessive leakage inductance or stray capacitance. (5) Audio Transformer (a) Loudspeaker Transformer . This style of transformer gives an extremely wide bandwidth but only a limited number of ratios can be achieved with this technique. Valve circuits for quality reproduction have long been produced with no other audio transformers. high power handling increases the required core size. (d) Baluns Transformer They are transformers designed specifically to connect between balanced and unbalanced circuits. A particularly critical component is the output transformer of an audio power amplifier. thereby raising its Q factor. Most solid-state power amplifiers need no output transformer at all. transformers are sometimes made from configurations of transmission line. The cores of such transformers help improve performance at the lower frequency end of the band.transformers are usually canned for stability and to reduce interference.
Or readymade transformers may be Moving coil phonograph cartridges produce a very small voltage. At the distant loudspeaker location. a smaller step-down transformer returns the voltage and impedance to ordinary loudspeaker levels. These transformers are less widely used today. which is mumetal shielded to minimise noise pickup. Such circuits are commonly referred to as constant voltage speaker systems. a transformer is usually used to convert the voltage to the range of the more common moving-magnet cartridges. In order for this to be amplified with a reasonable . At the audio amplifier. which contain laminations & bobbin.In the same way that transformers are used to create high voltage power transmission circuits that minimize transmission losses. a large audio transformer may be used to step-up the low impedance. allowing the volume at each speaker to be adjusted in discrete steps. (d) Interstage And Coupling Transformers (b) Output Transformer A use for interstage transformers is in the case of push-pull amplifiers where an inverted signal is required. although the audio waveform is a changing voltage. signal-noise ratio. loudspeaker transformers can be used allow many individual loudspeakers to be powered from a single audio circuit operated at higher-than normal loudspeaker voltages. as transistorized buffers are now cheaper. Here two secondary windings wired in opposite polarities may be used to drive the output devices. Valve amplifiers almost always use an output transformer to match the high load impedance requirement of the valves to a low impedance speaker. Microphones may also be matched to their load with a small transformer. (6) Homemade And Obsolete Transformer (a) Transformer Kit (c) Small Signal Transformer They may be wound at home using commercial transformer kits. These phase splitting transformers are not much used today. This application is common in industrial public address applications. low-voltage output of the amplifier to the designed line voltage of the loudspeaker circuit. The loudspeaker transformers commonly have multiple primary taps.
disassembled and rewound. . These were mostly used to control reaction. Enamelled copper wire is wound round the central half of the length of a bundle of insulated iron wire (eg florists' wire). These had higher stray capacitance than the pancake type. These approaches are occasionally used by home constructors. and housed one inside the other. 2 coils were wound on a 2 circular bands. In another design of variocoupler.Edward Hughes ->Wikipedia.JB Gupta ->Basic electrical and engineering-VN Mittal electronics ->Electrical engineering. No core was used.com ->oxforduniversity. Pancake coil variocouplers were common in 1920s radios for variable rf coupling. to make the windings. (b) Hedgehog Transformer These transformers are occasionally encountered in homemade 1920s radios. They were standard equipment in 1920s radio sets. The ends of the iron wires are then bent around the electrical winding to complete the magnetic circuit. The pancake structure was a means to minimize stray capacitance. For Example : - Firm clamping of laminations and varnish help to avoid buzz. References :- ->Basic electrical engineering. thus giving wide variation in coupling. Coupling varies as one coil is rotated between 0 and 90 degrees from the other. with provision for rotating the inner coil. but are usually avoided where possible due to the number of hours required to hand wind a transformer.com (c) Variocouplers Transformer Variocouplers (sometimes called variometers ) are rf transformers with 2 windings and variable coupling between the windings. and the whole is wrapped with tape or string to hold it together. The 2 planar coils were arranged to swing away from each other and for the angle between them to increase to 90 degrees. They are homemade audio interstage coupling transformers.
