TRANSFORMERS
TRANSFORMERSA transformer is a device used to increase or decrease the voltage in an ac circuit. In fact, one of the chief advantages of alternating current is that it can be transmitted at a high voltage with a low power loss; the voltage can then be reduced to any desired value by means of a transformer. We therefore frequently find transformers in ac systems.A schematic diagram of a transformer is shown in Fig. 6-33. It was explained in Chap. 1, in the section on electromagnetic induction, that every conductor of an electric current has a magnetic field. If al…
