Different types of transformers:
– power transformers
– distribution transformers
– isolation transformers
– current transformers
– potential transformers
Power Transformers are used primarily to couple electrical energy from a power supply line to a circuit system, or to components of the system.
Distribution transformers are used to supply relatively small amounts of power to residential and commercial areas.
The auto-transformer is a special type of power transformer. It consists of a single, continuous winding that is tapped on one side to provide either a step-up or a step-down function.
An isolation transformer is a very unique transformer. It has a 1:1 turn’s ratio. Therefore, it does not step voltage up or down. Instead, it serves as a safety device.
A current transformer has a primary coil of one or more turns of heavy wire. It is always connected in series in the circuit in which current is to be measured. The secondary coil is made up of many turns of fine wire, which must always be connected across the ammeter terminals.
A potential transformer is an extremely accurate step-down transformer, normally used with a standard 120-volt voltmeter.
