Shell Type Transformer- Construction, Working & Applications

The HV and LV winding is wound around the central limb. The central limb carries the entire flux (Ф ). The flux (Ф ) divides into two equal part and thus each side limbs carries the half (Ф/2 ) of the total flux(Ф ). As a result, cross section area of the central limb is two times of the side limbs area.The arrangement of the winding around the central limb is as given below.

Efficiency of Transformer

The transformer is a vital link between the load and the supply. The efficiency of the transformer is very important in view of energy saving. … Read more
