CONSTRUCTION, TYPES, AND CHARACTERISTICS1. A transformer is an apparatus for converting electrical power in an ac system at one voltage or current into electrical power at some other voltage or current without the use of rotating parts.2. A constant-voltage transformer (Fig. 5.1) consists essentially of three parts: the primary coil which carries the alternating current from the supply lines, the core of magnetic material in which is produced an alternating magnetic flux, and the secondary coil in which is generated an emf by the change of magnetism in the core which it surrounds. Sometimes the transformer may have only…
