- Research and discuss the different types of electrical transformers.
There are several different types of electrical transformers such as step up/step down transformers, iron core, ferrite core, air coil and many more.
Electrical transformers which are magnetic devices that sends electrical energy from one circuit to the next. The transformers produce magnetism which intern creates the electricity. When the magnetism changes by movement or an alteration an electrical force is produced. Faraday’s Law by Michael Faraday is the reason why we have transformers because it describes how a magnetic field with electric circuit to produce force.
- Research and discuss high power and low power transformer circuits.
The low voltage transformer are normally found in appliances and smaller electronic devices. Then there is higher voltage transformers which generates power between facilities.
- What are the main differences between step-up and step-down power transformers?
Step up transformer low voltage is primary where as the high voltage is secondary, this is used for power transmission, and the output of the voltage is greater than the source.
Step down transformer is mainly used for power distribution (for big residential areas and businesses), the secondary voltage is less than its primary and the secondary current is more than the primary.
2. How does an audio transformer’s impedance alter a speaker’s load efficiency?
A loudspeaker needs to have the proper current and voltage across it so it produces the right sound vibration. The impedance specifications is when the output of one circuit or device is connected to input into another device. This is important because the impedance will match and convert higher output to drive a low impedance speaker or device.
3. Where are center-tapped transformers used and what is the purpose of the center tap?
The purpose of the center tap is essential play a pivotal role in even voltage and this helps regulate the change of coil turn ratio. These are normally used in amplifiers for signaling purposes.
