What is Booster Transformer ?

Booster transformer in transmission line

When electric power is transmitted over long distance, voltage level falls due to the losses in the power line. Hence it is desirable to control the voltage of transmission line. In order to obtain constant voltage at the consumer’s end, voltage drop must be compensated to obtain a desired value. For that purpose, booster  transformer … Read more

Difference between Power Transformer and Distribution Transformer

Difference between Power Transformer and Distribution Transformer

Power generated at the generating stations need to be transmitted over long distance. In order to reduce I2R losses↗, we have to reduce current. Hence voltage is stepped up during the transmission of power by using using step up transformers. Step up transformers used in the transmission network are known as power transformers. Distribution transformers … Read more

Ideal Transformer and its Characteristics

Ideal Transformer and its equation

An ideal transformer cannot be physically exist, however its study provides a very useful information in the analysis of practical transformer. A transformer is said to be ideal if its output power is equal to input power. In other words, it does not have any losses and its efficiency is 100% . In this article, … Read more
