Efficiency of Transformer

Efficiency of transformer

Introduction Efficiency is a crucial aspect of any industry, and the transformer is no exception. In the electrical power industry, transformer efficiency is defined as the ratio of the output power to the input power, typically expressed as a percentage. A transformer with high efficiency is able to transfer more power from the input side … Read more

Transformer – Definition, Working principle, Diagram, Types


Continuous Electro-mechanical energy conversion takes place in an Electrical Machine. The transformer is not an Electrical Machine. It is a static device, that does not convert electrical energy to mechanical energy and vice versa. In Short, Transformer is a thing in an electrical component that Steps up or down the voltage. The Step-up transformer increases … Read more

Open and Short Circuit test of Transformer

Open and short circuit test are carried out to determine the equivalent circuit parameters of a single phase or 3 phase Transformer. Open circuit or the OC test of a transformer is used to measure “CORE losses“. Whereas Short circuit or SC test of a transformer is used to measure the “Full load copper loss“. … Read more
