Synergy Transformers Pvt. Ltd. is a well-known and successful Electrical Transformer Manufacturer in Gujarat, India. We are a team of engineers with expertise in the electrical field.
The basic principle behind the working of a transformer is the phenomenon of mutual induction between two windings linked by common magnetic flux. Basically, a transformer consists of two inductive coils; primary winding and secondary winding. The coils are electrically separated but magnetically linked to each other. When primary winding is connected to a source of alternating voltage, alternating magnetic flux is produced around the winding. The core provides a magnetic path for the flux, to get linked with the secondary winding.
Most of the flux gets linked with the secondary winding which is called ‘useful flux’ or main ‘flux’, and the flux which does not get linked with secondary winding is called ‘leakage flux’. As the flux produced is alternating, EMF gets induced in the secondary winding according to Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction. This emf is called ‘mutually induced emf’, and the frequency of mutually induced emf is the same as that of supplied emf. If the secondary winding is a closed circuit, then mutually induced current flows through it, and hence the electrical energy is transferred from one circuit (primary) to another circuit (secondary).
Uses of Electrical Transformer:
Raising or lowering the voltage level in the circuit of an AC.
Increasing or decreasing the value of an inductor or capacitor in an AC circuit.
Preventing the passage of DC from one circuit to another.
Isolating two electric circuits.
Stepping up the voltage level at the site of power generation before the transmission and distribution can take place.
