# Current transformers (CT)- working, types and connection

What is a current transformer? A current transformer is a type of instrument, used to measure or sense large alternating currents by scaling it to a smaller, safer and measurable…

Continue Reading Current transformers (CT)- working, types and connection

Some amount of power is lost during the voltage transformation process in a transformer. The current flows in a transformer winding and the alternating magnetic field in the core contributes to the majority of transformer losses.

# EMF equation of transformers

EMF equation of transformers lets you calculate the RMS values of induced voltages in the primary and secondary windings of a transformer. An alternating voltage, when applied to the primary…
