Most of the transformers have fixed ratios. It means that the output voltage is constant to the input voltage.Electric transformers change voltage from one level to another. They operate by converting higher voltage to a lower voltage.

Different types of electric transformers...

  1. 1. Different Types of Electric Transformers Transformers are used to change the numbers ofamperes, volts and watts of the electrical current from power source to the intended purpose ofmechanism. They are used to change the input voltage to a desired value of output voltage. In general,transformers can step up/increase the voltage or step down /decrease the voltage.Most of the transformers are embedded in another device, so you do not see them physically as they areplaced in the interior part of a machine. They are useful devices that can transfer energy between circuits.They are very useful in national power grid because they are responsible for transferring huge volume ofhigh voltage over long distances.These devices come in broad range of sizes which can either be small as a fingernail or as heavy likehundreds of tons. They serve an intended function and are designed based on the amount of powerneeded. Typically, there are varieties of transformers which are utilized for diverse applications.A typical example of these devices is the one present in the computer power supply. A transformer isfixed inside in order to alter the incoming 120 volts into 12 and 5 volts. These devices are also designedin adapters such as mobile chargers. The device alters the incoming 120 volts to a lower voltage such as3, 5,9,12 volts that mobile can accept.Most of the transformers have fixed ratios. It means that the output voltage is constant to the inputvoltage. While some have variable ratio wherein you can conveniently change the ratio of the input andoutput either manually or automatically.Electric transformers change voltage from one level to another. They operate by converting highervoltage to a lower voltage. It works through the principle of magnetic induction between coils to alter thecurrent levels. They come in range of low voltage, high voltage and step down voltage transformer.These voltage transformers are used in nations and regions where voltage supply is 220/240 volts. Itworks in the initial voltage of 220/240 volts, and step it down to 110/120 volts. Step up VoltageTransformer is a voltage transformer that is used in countries and regions that uses voltage supply of110/120 volts. It works with 110/120 volts and step it up to 220/240 volts.Other types of transformers which are used in different applications include Isolation, Special Purpose,Distribution, Constant Voltage (CVT) and Three Phase Transformer. Ac Power Transformers is whereElectrons keep changing directions. One common example of this device is the power coming from walloutlets including which is installed in our homes.
